Gee whiz! And what motivated you to post that here ass-clown?! Yet one more person who may have felt slighted by one of the better businesses in our area. True or not, your only fostering the rumor-mill by posting here and causing intentional damage. Your transparent.

Steve had his license suspended months ago. You can rest assured it wasnt the "town" who suspended it. Not that they could, even if they wanted to. It was the state who suspended his license. It involved a case in King George County. I tried in another thread many months ago to let you all know it was coming, as he was involved in lawsuits and had upcoming hearings with dpor. No one wanted to hear it though. I dont guess it really matters though. You can always change your name a bit or have someone else pull permits for you. Always do your homework before hiring anyone. Whether a contractor, mechanic, etc. Whatever it may be.

after reading the dpor report yes he did wrong by not having a change order however it is a common practice in construction to do changes with only a hand shake lets face it why would he want to go the extra mile putting in a fish tank color change in rooms deleating slideing doors etc no one works for free but all changes in a contract do require a signed change order seems like either more to story or someone wanted something for nothing as for thread above it is not legal to pull a permit for someone else you can loose your own licence if caught

I would like to take this opportunity to address this forum and to set the record straight; Trinity Building Companyís license is not revoked or suspended, and we are very much still in business.
In the past 4 years, Trinity has performed over 200 contracts and has satisfied all but two individuals. Trinity was forced to file suit in the Circuit Court of Montross against these individuals to obtain payment for work performed. In the first case, which was heard last year, the Circuit Court found solely on behalf of Trinity and awarded Trinity 100% of the balance of the contract.
The second case is scheduled for trial in July of 2013. The party involved in this second case filed a complaint against Trinity with the Board for Contractors in an attempt to have Trinity found guilty of negligence. After months of extensive scrutiny and investigation by the Board for Contractors investigator, the only issues which the investigator came up with were (1) that Trinity did not include their license number on the contract form, although a copy of Trinityís license was attached to the contract packet; and (2) Trinity did not included a change order provision in the contract, which is true as we believe if we perform proper due diligence during preconstruction, there should be no need for a change order provision. However, a change order provision is required by VA. State Statute.
Trinity agreed to the two accept the findings of the Board for Contractors, agreed to complete an 8-hour online contract administration course and pay an $850.00 fine for the omissions. For those of you who may be interested, you can review the correct facts and details of these two violations on the Board for Contractors website. Trinity forwarded the course certificate and the payment to DPOR on February 6, 2013, as required and has copies of all documents to substantiate this.
Trinity received no further follow up or correspondence regarding this matter from the Board for Contractors, or DPOR, until late in April of 2013, whereas a debt collection agency sent a letter to Trinity regarding an unpaid debt to DPOR. Prompt communication by Trinity with the Board for Contractors revealed that DPORís finance department had not posted Trinityís February 6, 2013 payment. Trinity emailed copies of the course certificate and February 6, 2013 payment to the Board for Contractors office and took the issue all the way to the Boardís Executive Director, Eric L. Olsen, to make sure Trinityís record was corrected, at which time Mr. Olsen assured Trinity that the issued would be corrected immediately and there would be no blemish on Trinityís record due to DPORís mistake. Trinity notified the Colonial Beach Building Inspector, and provided him with copies of all correspondence with DPOR.
Trinity cannot control how and when DPOR updates and or corrects incorrect information on their website. The disconnect between the DPORís finance department and the Board for Contractors was extremely frustrating for the Boards own staff person, Ms. Karen Bullock, whom spent weeks trying to get the issue corrected in the finance department.
We, at Trinity Building Company, sincerely hope that this explanation satisfies the insatiable appetite that a small minority of this Townís residents seem to have for propagating and spreading unconfirmed information. If those of you were so concerned about this issue, why didnít you contact Trinity Building Company and seek out the truth?
In closing, I will say that Trinity Building Company greatly appreciates the support from our clients, our subcontractors, and those of you who have paid us numerous compliments on the work that Trinity has performed in and around Colonial Beach.
If you would like to discuss this issue or any other business with Trinity, please contact us by phone or email, as we do not and will not communicate via this website. This was a one time posting.

Thank you,

Great response and good luck in the future. This is not the forum to bring up these matters but I agree you had no choice but to shut down idle gossip. Congratulations.
