The Singapore Sports Hub – home-straight towards the SEA Games

The 28th SEA Games will take place from June 5 to 16, 2015 in Singapore. Interview with Mathieu Tommy-Martin, Project Manager at the Singapore Sports Hub.

Is the Singapore Sports Hub 100% ready for the SEA Games ?
 
The Sports Hub is like an athlete: super prepared but training & giving it all until the last minute of the last event! 
Works are finished, systems are tested and retested, rehearsals happened.
Given the high complexity of the buildings and the number of systems, last minute touch-ups will take place up to 29-May. Then, with so many events in all facilities in such a short time, cleaning, maintenance and events preparation will still mobilize a lot of people.
For example, the stadium must undergo a dramatic change of configuration between the Opening Ceremony on 06-June, late evening and the first athletic event on 09-June, early morning: removal of the stage, pitch and track protection, thorough cleaning then installation of the athletic equipment.
Everybody will be on duty until the last spectator departs from the Closing Ceremony on 16- June.
 
How is the team feeling just before this major event? 
 
Two words would sum up our feelings: happy & tense. We are tense because we know we can’t afford any issue. 7 years of DSPL works will be judged on the success of the Sea Games: overall impression, performance of Singapore athletes, social networks and athletes feedbacks,… 
 
At the same time, we are all happy to see the site so colorful, good looking, and alive with thousands of spectators, so many events, temporary installations… 
 
Sea Games will be an essential milestone: after about 1 year, the baby that we first carried in our arms is now walking by itself! This is a great satisfaction!
