Con­struc­tion com­pany charged

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - THE ISLAND -

A con­struc­tion com­pany that built a build­ing us­ing plans that weren’t stamped by an ar­chi­tect was fined $1,500 Mon­day in pro­vin­cial court.

Ross MacMil­lan, pres­i­dent of Green­leaf Con­struc­tion, was in court where he pleaded guilty on be­half of the com­pany to a vi­o­la­tion of the pro­vin­cial Ar­chi­tects Act.

The court heard Green­leaf Con­struc­tion got a build­ing per­mit and con­structed the build­ing in Brack­ley, but didn’t have draw­ings stamped by an ar­chi­tect.

De­fence lawyer Michael Drake said when the com­pany learned there was an is­sue it reme­died the sit­u­a­tion and made sure the build­ing was in com­pli­ance.

Drake said it was an over­sight and wasn’t in­ten­tional.

The Com­mu­nity of Brack­ley was also charged with a vi­o­la­tion of the Ar­chi­tects Act and pleaded not guilty Mon­day in pro­vin­cial court.

It will be back in court Aug. 23 for a trial on the mat­ter.
