Construction problems at the Qay’llnagaay Heritage Centre in Skidegate will be worked out in negotiations and possibly arbitration, according to Robert Dudoward, CEO of the centre.
“We are in a respectful negotiation to determine where we both stand,” Mr. Dudoward said Tuesday morning.
At issue is about $500,000 worth of construction work the centre believes is substandard, something disputed by contractor Grand Construction.
Mr. Dudoward said the first stage of resolving the dispute is not likely to take more than a couple of weeks.
Construction of the $26-million centre, scheduled to open next year, is continuing as the two sides discuss the problem.
