Design Group: Principal
Justin Gurney is a rare breed of architect.
He loves design, but it’s the delivery of complex projects that gets him out of bed in the morning. He thrives under pressure and working with large multi-disciplinary teams.
Not afraid to get his hands dirty, Justin enjoys taking on the projects that others would be daunted by. In his opinion, the bigger and more complex the project, the better. Justin’s experience illustrates this, having successfully delivered large complex projects such as the Fiona Stanley Hospital in WA, Midland Public & Private Hospital and several high-rise commercial office towers both in Australia and the United Kingdom.
Having worked client side with Josh Ridley for over 10 years, Justin was inspired by Ridley’s vision and drive to transform the property industry. Justin made the decision to join Ridley as Principal in order to work on the delivery of iconic projects and to do so through use of smart technology. He is responsible for the delivery of large-scale complex projects in the hotel, commercial office, and high-rise residential sectors and he brings to Ridley over 22 years of experience in the property and construction sector.
Prior to joining Ridley, Justin was as Senior Associate in the HASSELL Perth studio where he spent a decade delivering major commercial and healthcare projects. He also worked in London for eight years with Sheppard Robson, an award-winning architecture, interior design and master-planning practice.
