3 P’s

At GLC we would like to offer society more than just a building or project. Inspired by the concept of ‘comprehensive sustainable development’ of the United Nations Summit in Johannesburg in 2002, we seek an equal balance among the three pillars, People, Planet and Prosperity, in each plan. Elements that allow the user, the natural environment and the local economy to harmoniously benefit from the project, without one pillar dominating the others. An intense, inspiring and often time-consuming process follows in cooperation with our clients, governments, environmental organizations and local interest groups.

1st P -“PEOPLE”

Our construction projects aim to enhance how the residents and visitors experience their surroundings. We believe that living and recreating is about using public space more than anything else. We see the future tenant, guest or local visitor in our mind’s eye, enjoying the environment, walking along its paths, or enjoying wine on a terrace. For us, the journey home is perhaps even more interesting than the house itself. It’s the excitement, amazement and joy on the way to the destination that to a large degree colours everyone’s experiences, discoveries and memories.

2nd P – “PLANET”

We design the landscape first, a landscape that is in harmony with the existing environment, the morphology and history of the area. Our starting points for the design are the construction of new countryside and the strengthening of the existing natural values. Housing and amenities are carefully fitted into the newly created landscape. We believe sustainability is not only about climate-neutral buildings and the use of sustainable materials and techniques, but also about harmoniously integrating the project into the environment and its ecosystems. We build with and for the natural surroundings.

3rd P – “PROSPERITY”

Our projects are total concepts. The social component of our designs and projects aim to match the existing economic and ecological components. We believe a project is sustainable only if it inspires the residents of the region in which it is located, combats shrinkage, increases the economic power of local entrepreneurs, and provides training and employment for the local community. We work with local partners during the construction and operational phases of the project whenever possible.

Health & Safety

Safety is our number one core value. We are uncompromising in our commitment to the health and safety of our employees, subcontractors, customers, and community. We continually improve our processes, demonstrate leadership, and promote comprehensive safety. We will require individual accountability, expect all employees to adhere to our safety standards, and actively participate in and support the advancement of our health and safety practices. Safety is the responsibility of all employees, including both top management and the individual craft worker. Everyone is responsible for achieving zero accidents resulting in a SAFE day, a SAFE tomorrow, a SAFE year, and a SAFE career.

Gatun Lake Construction is committed to being a leader in safety training and keeping our employees informed about the safety and health of our work as well as current safety issues, rules, and regulations.

Localisation

Gatun Lake Construction promotes generation of revenue within Panama. We have selected a 100% Panamanian supply chain and work together with our local suppliers and manufacturers to tailor to our needs. This has already resulted in changes in their manufacturing methods to avoid importing goods and services. The strong partnership with our local suppliers and manufacturers enables Gatun Lake Construction to be decisive and swift in project execution.

Our Panamanian staff gets the best training available in the industry and has acquired a unique skillset and gained lots of “on the job” experience. It is our aim to continuously further develop and train our local staff to ensure all employees have the opportunity to reach their potentials and grow with the company.

Quality

Gatun Lake Construction works against the highest quality standards both in our offices and on the job site. In our projects we aim to achieve “Right First Time, Every Time”. This means no rework and reliable results.
