Your Forum Facilitator: Paula Barnett



Paula is a “Jane of Many Trades”. Harking back to the start of her career as a park ranger, rural firefighter and conservation worker on the West Coast of the USA.

She has professional experience working in New Zealand in the Facilities Management space overseeing the day-to- day operation and running of commercial properties in Wellington and Kapiti. Paula has just completed 2 years working as a Council Building Warrant of Fitness Auditor for Hutt City Council. In this role she
was responsible for applying the relevant sections of the Building Act from a statutory, advisory and enforcement capacity covering Building Warrant of Fitness compliance and development of compliance schedules.

She has audited hundreds of buildings, from hospitals to power stations, dairies to libraries. The auditor role is
not only a check of the building owner’s adherence to the Building Code, but also that of the IQP’s and the accuracy of their 12A Certificates, surveys and maintenance reports. In her role with HCC she also attended final inspections for Code Compliance and Certificate of Public Use with council Building Inspectors. She cares deeply about people, and her favourite question to ask in an audit is; “if there is a fire or emergency right now, how will I get out of here safely?”

Her memberships include; Association of Building Compliance, Facilities Management Association of New Zealand, and the National Association of Women in Construction. Paula has a Bachelor’s Degree from the Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington, USA.


Paula is a published singer songwriter (folk and jazz) and loves to play golf, tramp,
and she loves working with native timbers in her craft space at home.
