Meet Kane

Hi, I’m Kane, the owner and director of Dougan Homes. I’m a visionary leader with a passion for turning your dream home into a reality.

My journey in construction began in 2009 when I embarked on an apprenticeship in Hawke’s Bay. Fuelled by a desire for build excellence, I’ve honed my skills and rose quickly through the ranks.

Driven by a thirst for knowledge and experience, I moved to London, where I got to work on many high-end residential projects, which provided me with the opportunity to refine my craft and master the art of precision and attention to detail.

In 2018, I returned to Hawke’s Bay with the vision to establish a boutique building firm which started as Dougan Construction but is today known as Dougan Homes, where I lead a team dedicated to quality craftsmanship and personalized service.

As a perfectionist, I ensure that every project meets the highest standards of excellence and my team and I take great satisfaction in seeing our valued clients’ dreams come to fruition, guiding them through the journey of building or renovating their homes with care and attention to detail.

Dougan Homes continues to further develop its reputation for quality, integrity, and customer satisfaction, making dreams a reality, one home at a time.

“Kane was amazing and made the project less stressful than we anticipated and that was due to his communication with us.
We knew at all times how it was progressing and he did well to line up each aspect and stage of the build.”
