Graffiti was found on a pavement in Danville, Virginia shortly after concrete had been poured on by contractor Quality Construction, Swiftec Group, providers of temporary construction protection, respond to the news.
Quality Construction will have to plough more money into replacing the concrete sidewalk on South Union Street after most parts of it were vandalised. The contractor is responsible for watching the site throughout the construction process.
Two sections of the concrete had “YO TEMPLE KIDS” spelt out with skateboard tracks also noticeable. A senior member of the Quality Construction team said they it would cost them a substantial figure to repair the concrete. Therefore, they would be encouraging the authorities to find the vandals and punish them accordingly.
Shane Brackin, project manager for Quality Construction said: “If the vandalism is deep enough — and I’ve heard there are some here that are — we have to replace the whole section. Surface damage can sometimes be corrected.
“It’s sad because we’re trying to get Danville looking better and be a place for people to enjoy. This type of thing, it’s a cost to us; it’s no extra cost to the city.”
