Complaint
Willful neglect of construction management responsibility during and after construction drawing full payment for services not fully provided.
Beginning with the project, Trent Williams Construction Management (hereafter referred to as TWCM)neglected it's responsibility to provide construction management oversight from property closing to unresolved property damage that exists today. TWCM drew 100% of it's management fees without meeting 100% of it's obligations.
Negligent practices include but are not limited to; latent or no communication, poor craftsmanship/quality, construction supervision/job oversight, latent or no follow-up on outstanding issues, and misrepresentation of competencies. The examples and facts that support the lack of construction management will not fit in the space provided so it will focus on this one unresolved complaint. As a result of poor quality workmanship and construction oversight, TWCM and brick mason * * through the construction of the exterior brick walls left unremoved mortar on the walls that cured. The cured mortar was a combination of wet mortar that splashed on the walls or was not removed as part of the "cut joint" process. To remove the mortar, a laborer was dispatched and attempted to wire brush the excess. When that failed, a pressure washer was used which removed the manufactures glaze and etched all exterior walls resulting in irreversible damage. Since then, repeated attempts to communicate with TWCM on a solution have resulted in what I believe is his conscious decision to drag out the issue with hopes that it will go away or force litigation. In a spirit of resolution and good faith to avoid suing TWCM and * *, I met with his attorney * * providing dates, pictures and documentation supporting the outstanding issues. TWCM remains to this day unresponsive to his attorney's request to provide updates on status. TWCM has all dates, pictures and facts through certified mail sent to the office. Text messages and voicemail confirm his understanding and admission to the damage. This issue is over 70 weeks old. In addition to the information provided to TWCM including pictures and description, a timeline is being maintained which supports the statements above and can be provided.

Desired Settlement
Replacement of all exterior brick walls with the original brick purchased and contracted for installation.

Business Response
Homeowner selected a cut joint application for their exterior brick that typically exhibits an excess mortar finish. In the month following the *'s move in to their new home Mrs.* requested the excess mortar be removed. At that time Trent Williams commissioned * * to clean said brick. During this process a thin layer of glaze was removed at the sites where the mortar had adhered.
At this time all parties have agreed to a resolution whereby * * will assist & provide labor for an extended patio & outdoor kitchen to be added to the * home.
Trent Williams felt that in the following ways his company had completed the construction of the home in an honorable and upright manner. The efficient 5 1/2 month build time,the adherence to budgetary guidelines,and the delivery of a remarkably attractive home with attention to detail.
Trent Williams continues to desire a congenial relationship with the homeowner.
