William Scotsman Inc.

Charlotte County, FL: (Jul-25-07) Charlotte County Public Schools brought charges against William Scotsman Inc., alleging that mold was found on multiple wooden panels throughout the adjoining structures, causing the school to have to move school supplies from the portables and prepare suitable classrooms elsewhere. The original 27,689 square-foot Benjamin J. Baker Pre-K Center was destroyed by Hurricane Charley in August 2004. Students moved into modular classrooms several months later, but had to relocate again in fall 2005. Baker was the only one of the district's six modular classroom facilities built with a wood frame. Due to the mold, the preschool was moved to two storage buildings on the East Elementary campus, where it remains today.

In a voluntary settlement reached, William Scotsman agreed to pay the school authorities $250,000. The payout will help Charlotte County Public Schools recoup half of what it spent to house preschool students in a hurricane-damaged building, after mold was discovered in their portable classrooms.
