Denton County Administrative Courthouse

A settlement with Sundt Construction cuts more than $100,000 from the cost of the new Denton County Administrative Courthouse.

Denton County officials say it was a host of punch list items that spurred on a recent settlement agreement between the county and contractor Sundt Construction that resulted in more than $100,000 shaved off the total cost for the new administrative courthouse.

County commissioners approved the settlement last week after months of closed-session discussion regarding Sundt Construction, the head contractor for the county’s new administrative courthouse off Loop 288. The agreement was overseen by a mediator and knocks the final price for the project down from about $45.2 to $45.1 million.
