Starting from the top


Jim Dowling founded Dowling Construction in 1998.  His success is rooted in his hard work ethic and unique combination of field AND property management experience. He has molded Dowling Construction, Inc. into a well-rounded, balanced company specializing in T.I's. When he founded the company, he hired Gayle Johnson as his accountant, office manager, project coordinator, HR Manager, contract administrator, IT get the idea. In 2018 she became an  owner  and Vice President of Dowling Construction, Inc.   


Project Teams

Big or small, every project will be assigned a Project Manager, Project Coordinator, & Superintendent. 
Jim Dowling is the lead Project Manager.  Working alongside him is Wanda Benedetto, Project Coordinator. Wanda has helped set the standard high for exceptional customer service. Over the years they have built solid relationships and more importantly trust with our clients.

Wanda Benedetto Jim Dowling
Shelby & Glenn

Glenn and Shelby have been paired as a project team for 5+ years. With Glenn’s experience from all facets—starting in the field, to facilities manager, and now an estimator/PM—combined with Shelby’s organization, attention-to-detail, and swiftness, there is no project these two can’t handle. They’ve completed over 300 TIs together, ranging from a few hundred up to over 1million dollars. Rest assured, you will be well-taken care of in their hands, just like if Owner, Jim Dowling, was your PM.

Chris Kurtz is the newest addition to the Dowling Family.  He has over 35 years in the construction industry. He started as a superintendent, but quickly found his happy place in estimating.  Since he is our full time estimator, this leaves our project managers more time to focus on serving our clients.

We treasure our relationships with each of our clients, big and small, and continue to rely on word of mouth referrals and repeat business.  Our size provides us the freedom to adapt quickly to any changes and create any solutions needed for you; our clients. 

Our mission is to build trust & relationships-one project, one person, one square foot at a time for our clients through superior tenant improvements services and adding value to each and every building.
