Hawaii-based Metcalf Construction was awarded a $50 million government contract more than a decade ago to design and build residences on the Marine Corps Base Hawaii in Oahu. However, Metcalf spent more than $76 million on the project and sued to recoup costs. The U.S. Court of Federal Claims ruled against the company. Now, a decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit reverses that ruling. The appeal was supported by the Associated General Contractors of America and several other construction trade groups, and is expected to "have broad implications for the rest of the government contracting community," according to the article.
