Member Spotlight: Morgan Poi

Posted on Thursday 06 June, 2024

Morgan Poi won the Projects under $ 10 Million Award category at the 2023 NZ Building People Awards. He was nominated for his work as Site Manager for Hawkins on the Hawke’s Bay Prison Staff Facilities project.

What made Morgan stand out amongst a strong field was his humility, empathetic leadership, positivity, and his commitment to people. These qualities became particularly important in responding to Hawke’s Bay’s flooding in February 2023 where Morgan went above and beyond to support his colleagues.

The judges said “It is an absolute privilege to have Morgan Poi as the winner in this category. Morgan has had a clear impact on all stakeholders on the project, he leads from the trenches with empathy and understanding.”

We asked Morgan a few questions to get to know him better.

Member Spotlight: Helen Moate

Posted on Friday 03 May, 2024

Helen Moate won the Consultants Award at the 2023 NZ Building People Awards. Helen spent nine years working on the Te Wao Nui, Wellington Childrens Hospital, in Pōneke | Wellington in an unusual role coordinating all parties and stakeholders to the project.

The Award judges said “Helen is very clearly a people person with empathy and humanity at the core of everything she does and exceptional skills in management and leadership. We could see it wasn’t just about bringing people together for the sake of the project but also recognising the individual needs of the team members.”

Helen is a Senior Project Manager at The Building Intelligence Group in Pōneke | Wellington and a member of the Institute’s Central Region Committee.

We asked Helen a few questions to get to know her better.
