We hired Sean Lewis and his firm RQTEKURE Partners (also going by Genie LLC) on July 27,2017 to be our arhictects for our restaurant build out. 

Per the terms and design times Sean Lewis wrote in his contract we were looking at a restaurant opening later in 2017.  We were also assured of this.   His timelines to complete drawings were as follows 1.  Evaluation and planning  1.5 wks. 2.  Schematic and/Conceptual ( We provided). 3D Renderings and the entire space drawn out showing all items excluding kitchen.  We also sent him the CAD so it was already pretty much completed. 3.  Development Design 1.5 wks 4.  Construction Documents 3.5 wks   Total time before the first round of submittals should have taken to be able to submit would be 6-7  weeks.  So putting us around August 15th or so.  Give or take roughly.  Keep in mind we went into this wanting to be open by Nov 2017.      During this time YUME PAID RQTEHKURE PARTNERS ( Genie LLC ) 1. Deposit 7/17/17.  $10,000 2. Deposit 2 11/11/17 $6,449.57.  We were made to pay prior to dropping off plans to be submitted to county.    3. Deposit 3 listed below were told was required by engineer.  Details below regains MEP. Total to RQTEKURE $19,449.57 Excluding outdoor work and cost.   The firm finally submitted to Arlington County Deceber 28, 2017 finally and as we were waiting for the architectural firm to resubmit the revisions from MEP etc.   We stopped getting responses from Mr. Lewis.  He made over 7 promises in a 27 day span of when we would be receiveing the revised plans to resubmit.   We received countless guarantees regarding dates and times.   There was no reason for the delay since all the firm had to do was stamp the plans and turn them over to us.   We sent Mr. Lewis and his firm a demand notice followed which we did not receive any work back from them about.  We sent countless email and messages trying to resolve this situation prior to having the make the business decision to terminate them due to lack of performance.   Upon terminating them.  We found out that Mr. Lewis had not paid the MEP contractor that he made us pain in full for.  The MEP contract sent us over the 3 invoices for payment they had sent to the firm.     So here we are the small business trying to open a restuanrant and the architect has been paid and did not perform nor pay anyone else.  Do this date we have not received a response from the firm so we do not want anyone else to be scammed by this person or his firm.

Mr. Sean S. Lewis with RQTEKURE Partners dba Genie LLC dba RQTEKURE Members LLC

It is sad but true.  Mr. Lewis did go into contract and did no perform per his agreement.  They also did not pay the contractors.

Sean Lewis and his firm which he is the sole owner went into contract with YUME Restaurant Group LLC and was to provide approved drawings for the restaurant build out.

RQTEKURE Partners/Genie LLC were paid in full due to contract terms in December of 2018.   The contract was originally signed June of 2017 and the restaurant was to be able to submit for the first round of comments in approximately 5-7 weeks from contract signing date.   Mr. Lewis did not submit for the first round of comments until Dec 28th 2017 at which time is required is final payment for services.   This was his third and final payment.  

Between the comments coming back and revisions being made by the MEP contractor and being ready for resubmittal Mr. Lewis stopped responding to the Yume Team.  After receiving 7 emails with different times plans would be ready to resubmit over a period of a month and a half the team was not left with any other choice but to send Mr. Lewis a demad letter folllowed weeks later with a termination letter.

The Yume team has reached out to Mr. Lewis / RQTEKURE Partners via email, phone calls and text to get this resolved with not once response. 

Mr. Lewis was paid in full and he did not even pay the MEP contractor the $7,000 for there work we paid him in full for.
