Christopher Naylor


A self-employed builder in Central Otago for over 30 years, Chris pioneered straw-bale construction in New Zealand and specialised in environmentally sustainable, healthy homes and restoration of historic buildings.

Chris maintains the connection with one of our founding families; his grandfather Hugh was the founder of W H Naylor Construction, and his father Ben retired as a Director in 2006 after 58 years’ service. Chris has been on our Board since that time.
