How to handle a hostile architect / construction manager on disagreement of percent complete?
I am with a general contractor working on a private sector construction project in Arizona. The architect / construction manager (same person in this case) is refusing to sign pay-app, stating that he disagrees with 100% complete on many scopes of work within the SOV’s. He claims more money than the agreed to retention is needed to insure sub-contractors make corrective actions such as punch list items. This has delayed payment for several months on a project that is 99% overall completed.
