Not to defend Vila Construction, but I'm certain there is more to the story than we are hearing.

Second, how was the contract awarded and what background checks were made to assure Vila Construction is qualified for this type of project? It seems to me there s probably plenty of blame to go around and it isn't all with the contractor.
