Pamela Bell brings experience in:
- architecture research (MArch, ‘Kiwi Prefab’ book + exhibition),
- Olympic-level sport (snowboarding at Winter Olympics, Japan),
- business entrepreneurship (PrefabNZ Inc, Fruition Apparel Ltd, NZ Snowboard Academy Ltd),
- and governance (Urban Plus, MBIE BAP, BRANZ, Mt Vic Hub, Snow Sports NZ).
She founded the peak body for innovative construction, PrefabNZ, in 2010 from her Master of Architecture thesis ‘Kiwi Prefab’, and handed over the reins in 2019 when offsite construction reached a ‘tipping point’ of awareness for central government, the construction industry and the public consumer alike.
Today, Pamela is an independent Innovation Consultant, specialising in the built environment, growing start-ups and future-focused governance to clients around the world. She has been the lucky recipient of a number of awards throughout her career, most recently the Victoria University of Wellington Alumni Award (2019) and an honorary appointment as Adjunct Professor (2020).
