The Resort at Isla Palenque Opening

Deture Culsign was on site in the Chiriqui region of Panama working around the clock to prepare the resort for its February 14, 2013 opening. The transformation was magical. Upon arrival to the island, the property was covered with scaffolding, equipment, and construction crew members everywhere. Knowing a delay was not an option, Kimshasa Baldwin, Principal of Deture Culsign, worked with Amble Development staff to get the doors open on time. With some island conditions not able to be foreseen from an office desk, on island details were resolved and immediately constructed by the on-island crew. Deture Culsign knows the success of a project means everyone on the team gets involved to get the job done, that’s all part of the process.

DCA+I Invests in our Future

Deture Culsign lends a hand whenever possible with local organizations to broaden awareness for the profession and give encouragement to youth. At Ace Academy in Chicago, IL, Deture Culsign Principal Kimshasa Baldwin attended as a panel speaker and mock interviewer alongside other designers from Gensler, Perkins and Will and other notable firms. “Making yourself available to teens who are on track for a career in Architecture and Engineering makes a huge difference in their lives. For most of them, they have never met anyone in these professions. When I decided to pursue architecture, I did not know one architect nor did I know anything about the profession. Having someone to provide answers to the many questions which arise when you start planning for college changes the game for them.” Students are juniors and senior on track to attend college.
