Doug, very complex question, more information is likely needed. Generally, if a project is private, you'd have lien rights as against the respective real property where the project is located. In Connecticut, if the project is public, bonding would be necessary for the project and there would have to be a bond to make a contractor/subcontractor/materialman whole as you would not be able to foreclose on the project. Regardless of lien rights, are there payment bonds invovled? As to the lien rights issue, that would likely require some legal research and additional facts and circumstances.
