The design team for Atlanta’s new international airport terminal filed suit yesterday, one day day after its contract was terminated by the city. The city claims that the team, made up of Leo A. Daly Co., Khafra Engineering Inc., Anthony C. Baker Architects and Planners PC, and Browder & LeGuizamon, delivered plans late and in inadequate form and rang up $140 million in cost overruns. The city says the team never informed it of the overruns, which the team blames on changes in specifications and increased steel prices. The complaint seeks $10 million in lost profits and $50 million in damage to the firms’ reputations.
