With 30 years’ experience in construction in Christchurch, Sydney, and Wellington, Stacey brings a wide range of industry experience to the role of Chief Estimator at Pacific Doors Limited in Seaview, Wellington. Most of her career has been in the estimating discipline, and as a project quantity surveyor for main contractors. Stacey is also passionate about improving New Zealand’s safety record, and is active in improving workplace safety performance.
Stacey is a qualified Quantity Surveyor and a 30 year member of NZIQS, where she has served on the National Marketing Committee. In 1997 she was awarded the NZIQS President’s citation for her initiative as co-founder of the New Zealand chapter of the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC).
Stacey is an avid Wellingtonian who is proud to have been involved in the construction of Wellington landmarks including Te Papa, the Stadium and the Regional Hospital, as well as working on many smaller fit outs and refurbishments. Well known across the sector, she has an ability to integrate consultants, clients, project teams and contractors - for short term problem solving as well as long term strategic partnering with commercial opportunities.
Encouraging women to join and stay in the construction industry is important to Stacey and in 1996 with two others she set up NAWIC in Wellington. She has taken considerable enjoyment and satisfaction from watching NAWIC flourish into a highly regarded organisation that quietly gets on with promoting the success of women in construction.
