The aptly named Dublin Airport Authority, who still run Cork Airport, is taking legal action against two firms who were involved in the construction of the new terminal building in Cork.
The Dublin Airport Authority (DAA) has filed papers in the High Court against BAM Contractors (a Dutch Company) and Jacobs Engineering (An Americal company), both of whom were contracted to work on the terminal, which was completed in 2006.
According to the Irish Examiner is understood that the legal action has been triggered now before a 10-year warranty on the building expires at the end of the year.
The terminal is estimated to have cost in the region of €120million. The legal action, which relates to an alleged breach of contract, is understood to be focused only on structural issues with the terminal’s roof as leaks are among several problems which have affected the roof over the years.
The new terminal was built during Ireland’s property bubble, at the same time as scandals like the building of Priory Hall took place.
