Chief Secretary Orville London is promising that more details about the opening of the Shaw Park Cultural Complex will be forthcoming in one week’s time. Speaking at Wednesday’s Post Executive Council Media Briefing, London explained that although events have been planned for the facility, a grand opening is yet to be finalised.

“When you have a facility as massive as the Cultural Complex, you need to ensure that when you have the grand opening, that everything is working. So what we are doing is using the activities prior to the opening to see what is going on, if there are any issues and so on, he told reporters.

The first event carded for the newly constructed complex is the ‘United in Praise’ concert set for February 3. This will be followed by the Inter-department Show a few days later. Two weeks ago, the Tobago House of Assembly announced that the cultural complex, which has a capacity of 5,000 persons, is ready for public use. An interim committee is expected to spearhead the management of the complex until a Board is installed.

Work on the Shaw Park Cultural Complex began in 2006 and was originally scheduled to be completed in June 2011. The original budget for the project was $196 million; it is now estimated to have cost a whopping $634 million. The main contractor is Yorke Structures Limited, with NIPDEC as project manager.

The Trinidad and Tobago Fire Service has given the complex conditional approval, meaning work still needs to be done before a final Fire Inspection Certificate is granted.
