Construction company charged
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.
