Chinese house construction companies in Kenya [The best 5]

There are a couple of reasons behind the rise of the number of Chinese house construction companies in Kenya including:

  • Use of alternative building technologies which often leads to cheaper construction costs.
  • Timely completion of housing projects
  • The bosom friendship between Kenya and China.

In addition, most of these companies are also known for top-quality workmanship making them a favorite among Kenyan real estate developers.

But which are these leading Chinese house construction companies in Kenya?

Well, that’s the question we are answering in this article. I will also be listing their locations and contact information (where available)– just in case you may want to talk to the engineers there.

Let’s go:

The following are the Chinese builders participating in Kenya’s bulging real estate sector.

Sinohydro Kenya

This is owned by the Chinese government and has been the leading construction company in massive projects such as the proposed dualling of the busy Nairobi Northern Bypass and a couple of multi-million real estate developments.

Their mooted base in Nairobi will be serving Kenya and over 20 other African countries.


Zhejiang Chengjian Construction Africa

This is among the Chinese house construction companies in Kenya running operations at the coast.

They also accept construction contracts from elsewhere in the country including the city where they have been overseeing the building of the Nairobi Global Trade Center, a 42-story office tower.

Final thoughts

Unfortunately, some of these builders only maintain offices at the site – that’s why I was unable to include all the contacts.

As a result, you might have to travel to one of their projects to make inquiries or use an agent.
