Izaak van Drongelen assembled a team of experts to start a new enterprise in Panamá. They founded a construction company that provides European style project management/ development, bearing within its’ name the location where it all began – Gatun Lake Construction.
The first project we began developing in the Isthmus of Panama goes by the name of ChiQ Villa Gatun, which is located on the banks of Gatun Lake. ChiQ Villa Gatun is an ecofriendly boutique hotel with a futuristic concept that embraces the exotic lure of countryside Panama, all the while incorporating technology as its’ main design feature in order to provide a unique experience by bringing nature and technology together. Designed by our architect Maxi Aparicio, ChiQ soon began construction under the supervision of Bob Knijnenburg to a successful start in the year 2012.
