“Construction on the new Tennessee National Wildlife Refuge headquarters and visitor center came suddenly to a halt May 1 when T.G. Constructors filed for bankruptcy.
“We had been getting some phone calls from some sub-contractors and workers saying they hadn’t received payments due,” Barron Crawford, refuge manager, said Thursday.
“We passed them along to the Shaw Group, the architect-engineering company in charge of the project,” he said. “They took over after the bankruptcy and have been working with the bonding company, attorneys and subcontractors since then trying to settle claims.”
Crawford also said the Shaw Group is not planning to hire another contractor but instead will take charge of the project and subcontract the rest of the work.”
