Subject: Building Safety

An investigation by KMGH-TV revealed that the contractors who built Denver's new $100-million Federal Courthouse ignored the National Electric Code and installed potentially hazardous wire to save money and time, essentially making the building the General Services Administration said was safe a firetrap. "In the days following (the) investigation, GSA hired an independent contractor to inspect the Federal Courthouse's entire electrical system. Inspectors found nearly three miles of dangerous and improperly installed wire. The GSA ordered the contractor to remove the wire at no cost to the taxpayer. The GSA has also started its own investigation into the possibility of fraud and wrongdoing by the electrical contractor."
