Each member of Douglas Projects brings to the team a different set of skills and strengths that combine to inform the current construction management strategy, the planning of future projects, and the trajectory of the company toward its short- and long-term goals.
Isaac Jones – General Manager
Isaac Jones has lived in Kenya for the majority of his life and received his primary and secondary education at Rosslyn Academy in Gigiri, Nairobi. He finished his undergraduate education at the University of Oxford and Azusa Pacific University in England and the United States respectively. His work experience includes multiple housing construction projects in California, as well as structural engineering in the construction of petroleum extraction plants in Northern Canada.
Terry Jones – Technical Director
Originally of Canadian descent, Terry Jones owned and operated a construction company during the 80’s and 90’s in the Beverly Hills area in the state of California. The company focused on high-end custom building and remodeling for wealthy American clientele.
In 1994, Terry Jones left the United States to work as an aviation pilot and manager of missionary organizations in East Africa. The presence of unreliable local contractors in the region paired with the high demand for Western-quality construction meant Terry was often asked by expatriates living in Kenya to step in and oversee their projects. Over time a crew of honest and hard-working Kenyans was developed and mentored to provide the highest quality in Kenyan construction.
James Kamau – Project Supervisor
James Kamau brings to the team over 30-plus years of construction experience in Kenya. He began training as a masonry fundi in 1981, progressed over time to tile foreman of major flooring projects, and over the last decade and a half has overseen as foreman dozens of projects in Kenya. He is directly responsible for every day operations on the site of ongoing projects.
