Infrastructure NZ's The Infrastructure Collective Network is
pleased to invite you to a close-knit interactive session with an industry
leader exclusively for our members. We call it 'The Inner Circle'.
In these exclusive sessions, an industry leader leads a discussion with a small group of The Infrastructure Collective members on a hot topic in infrastructure. You will be participating, not just listening, so bring your questions and opinions along, find out about our expert, and what they are leading in their sector. This session will be limited to 15 people, so you’ll need to be quick to snap up your place at the table.
Naylor Love is the largest privately owned tier 1 construction company in New Zealand and has seven regional divisions across New Zealand. Naylor Love employs over 800 staff and turnover is in excess of $600 million per annum.
Justin Storm, as the Group Risk Manager for Naylor Love, is responsible for identifying and managing risks around the company’s commercial activities, in particular contractual risks minimising and mitigating disputes before they arise. He works very closely with all divisions of the company including the bid teams, establishing and putting in place frameworks and tools that set expectations around risk management for Naylor Love.
In addition to his senior risk management role at Naylor Love, Justin is passionate about upskilling the whole Naylor Love team, sharing his experience and knowledge about risk management and runs regular internal training sessions for the commercial and project teams.
This virtual event is an opportunity for a small group of 15 members of The Infrastructure Collective (formerly Emerging Talent) to chat with Justin and ask him questions about what it is like to manage risk for a top performing and large organisation like Naylor Love and how he got to where he is today.
Naylor Love is currently working on a number of large projects from Invercargill up to Auckland, covering many sectors including commercial, retail, education, health and industrial and civil. Some of Naylor Love’s recent projects include the science facility at Lincoln University and the Tauhara Power Station in Taupō.
Justin has been with Naylor Love for over 10 years; now seven years into his second stint after working for six years in the Middle East. He studied quantity surveying after school and has held numerous roles since then, including as a quantity surveyor, estimator, project manager and commercial manager. Justin recently completed the Master of Construction Law at the University of Melbourne, which has provided him with an excellent base in his current role as Group Risk Manager for Naylor Love.
Justin is heavily involved in working with the bid teams assessing and mitigating company risk particularly in construction contracts for significant projects and has significant experience in managing and resolving complex construction related disputes if and when they arise. His role also involves upskilling the Naylor Love team, providing guidance to all divisions on appropriate forms of contract and contract terms to minimise risk and on how to achieve best for project and company outcomes.
