Ar­chi­tect files de­fence in Win­nipeg’s CFL sta­dium law­suit

Cape Breton Post - - SPORTS -

WIN­NIPEG — An ar­chi­tect be­ing sued by the own­ers of the sta­dium where the Win­nipeg Blue Bombers play has filed a state­ment of de­fence. Ray Wan de­nies re­spon­si­bil­ity for dozens of al­leged de­sign and con­struc­tion de­fi­cien­cies at the venue. The $200-mil­lion sta­dium opened in 2013 and is to be the site for this fall’s Cana­dian Football League Grey Cup game. It has been plagued by leaky lux­ury suite roofs, poor drainage and in­suf­fi­cient in­su­la­tion to keep plumb­ing op­er­a­tional in win­ter. Wan claims in his state­ment of de­fence that own­ers Triple B Sta­dium asked only for a two- to three-sea­son sta­dium to be con­structed. The own­ers are also su­ing the builder, Stu­art Ol­son Con­struc­tion. Triple B al­leges that Wan and Stu­art Ol­son are re­spon­si­ble for 42 “op­er­a­tional and de­sign de­fects”
