RIFT VALLEY ACADEMY
DMJ Architects were invited to prepare a masterplan to allow for the upgrading of the dining facilities of this is a century-old institution. This involved a new maintenance facility, laundry and kitchen before the dining hall could be renovated.
More recently we completed an arts block, including a wood and metal workshop.
MISSIONARY BENEDICTINE SISTERS, PRIMARY SCHOOLS. RUARAKA AND KIMUMU, ELDORET
After designing kindergartens for these two institutions, DMJ Architects were asked to design and coordinate the construction of a primary school for the Sisters at Ruaraka and another at Eldoret.
The Ruaraka campus comprises a main block of 12 classrooms including IT labs, science classrooms, a library, a domestic science room and staff rooms. In addition, there is a dining hall and kitchen with a gymnasium and changing rooms above.
The Kimumu Campus has a similar main building to Ruaraka with space left for a future boarding house, dining and gym facilities, staffrooms and administration buildings.
After the university decided to relocate from their original campus in Parklands, DMJ Architects were asked to master plan the new university campus at Kasarani. This not only provided facilities for the academic and administrative facilities, but also provision for boarding houses. Many of the early structures were prefabricated to allow for a speedy translocation. Besides the Dr. Beam library, we also designed a 1000 pax capacity auditorium.
DMJ Architects were the original architects for this international research facility. This assignment included the master plan for the campus, the original institutional and subsequent additions including BL2 and BL3 facilities.

DMJ Architects were requested to take over the completion of this institution after peace was restored in 1989. We also designed staff housing and, at Debre Zeit, research facilities
