This relationship between space and environmental design culminates in his development of the Tetrakit system. Working in the cyclonic areas of north-western Australia in the aftermath of Cyclone Tracy in 1974, Jones with the help of structural engineer George Katieva, devised prefabricated kit homes. Constructed of prefabricated frames and panels, the Tetrakit kit home would resist the strong wind pressures during a cyclone. Roofs and walls inclined at 15 degrees balanced the cyclonic winds loads placed on the building.
From 1966 to 1967, Jones practiced in partnership with Montague Grant, going by the name “Jones Grant Architects”.

In 1946, Jones began his architectural studies at the University of Melbourne, and was taught by Robin Boyd, Roy Grounds, John Mockridge, and Frederick Romberg. He took a particular interest in the works of Boyd, particularly in relation to Boyd’s ideas of spatial continuity between building and landscape, as well as his environmental design philosophy.
During his studies, Jones played Australian rules football for Collingwood and Melbourne from 1946 to 1949. In 1953, he later played in a premiership with the South Fremantle Football Club.
From 1943 to 1945, Jones joined the Royal Australian Navy, and was aboard the cruiser HMAS Australia during the Philippines Campaign.
