An electrical subcontractor is suing a general contractor after allegedly being left unpaid after providing the electrical for a new bank building.

Peak Electric Inc. filed a complaint July 24 in Cook County Circuit Court against PB1010 Inc., formerly RIIS Borg Construction Co., Beverly Bank and Trust Co. N.A., doing business as Oak Lawn Bank and Trust, and unknown owners and non-record claimants.

On or before Jan. 7, 2014, Beverly Bank entered into a general construction contract with RIIS Borg to build a bank building, and RIIS Borg then entered into a subcontractor agreement with Peak Electric to perform the electrical infrastructure work on the property, the lawsuit states.

According to the lawsuit, Peak Electric fulfilled its end of the agreement; however, Peak Electric is still allegedly owed $222,842.30.

On May 27, the lawsuit states, Peak Electric filed a notice and claim for mechanics lien against the property for the amount allegedly owed, the lawsuit states, and other allegedly unpaid parties also hold such notices.

The plaintiff, citing breach of notice and quantum meruit, seeks the balance owed, plus costs.

The plaintiff is represented by William H. Hrabak Jr. of Goldstine, Skrodzki, Russian, Nemec and Hoff Ltd. in Burr Ridge.

Cook County Circuit Court case number 2015CH11251.
