January 03, 2018 |

China Construction America, Inc. and related business entities have been sued in New York State court for engaging in massive fraud, malicious acts of deceit and interference, and breaches of contract related to the Baha Mar Resort project in The Bahamas.

CCA may face over $2.25 billion in liability stemming from the lawsuit filed by the project’s original owner, BML Properties Ltd. According to the lawsuit, CCA allegedly intended to use the project to establish a beachhead in the Americas and the Caribbean.

The company allegedly trained “its unqualified workers and staff in order to obtain and then construct other projects throughout the Americas and Caribbean, and submit sham billings for hundreds of millions of dollars as the contractor and construction manager of the project. Combined with CCA's fraudulent and deceptive understaffing, CCA's malicious conduct doomed the project to failure.”

CCA has also been the prime contractor on massive building projects in New York including: New York's City Hall, the Alexander Hamilton Bridge, the 11 Times Square Office Building, the Brookfield Place Winter Garden Glass Pavilion, and Buildings 92 & 77 at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. CCA also has undertaken public works projects in South Carolina.
