M.G.M. Insulation, Inc. v Gardner, 2013 NY Slip Op 01017, Court of Appeals
After BVFD determined that the facility was no longer adequate for its needs and the Village declined to build it a new firehouse, BVFD commissioned a feasibility study and obtained its own financing for the construction of a new facility. Ultimately BVFD acquired land and in 2006 employed R-J Taylor General Contractors, Inc. (Taylor) as the general contractor to build the facility. Taylor subsequently hired a number of subcontractors to construct the various portions of the firehouse.
