A big project done on “island time”
There’s no rush to finish in Trinidad
Posted on Tuesday, May 1st, 2018
Many projects can seem to take a long time in our shop, but a recently completed job holds the all-time record! They say that time on a Caribbean island is kept differently than on a continent. Time goes by much more slowly and there is no need to rush. We certainly found this to be true on this project.
Seven years ago a businessman from Trinidad dropped in to Giggle Ridge Adventure Golf, which we had built and, at the time, owned. He had been searching for more than ﬁve years around the world for a company to build his dream project. We talked at length and he excitedly promised that we would be the team to help him realize his long-held dream.
Two years went by before he contacted us to start the serious planning. It was another year before we were under contract to begin the actual building process. In that year the project grew from a half-acre mini golf to a two-and-ahalf acre theme park, complete with nine rides and attractions.
