Kōmata o Te Rangi
Kōmata o Te Rangi is the Āpōpō Supreme Infrastructure Asset Management Excellence Award. This precious taonga has been presented three times since 2021.
The development of Kōmata o Te Rangi by Bronson Baker, an Auckland born carver of Ngati Tuwharetoa, Nga Puhi and Te Arawa descent, began in July 2021. Bronson was inspired by the passion that the Āpōpō team had for the Infrastructure Asset Management Excellence Award entries and the team’s commitment to the improvements that projects like these can make to our day to day lives. Kōmata o Te Rangi, a taurapa, is Āpōpō’s Supreme Award, and is a symbol of the elite, a representation of a pinnacle, or the zenith.
He mea tīmata te whakairo nei a Te Kōmata o Te Rangi e Bronson Baker i te Hūrae 2021. He kaiwhakairo a Bronson nō roto mai o Ngā Puhi me Te Arawa.
Ka whakaohoohotia a Bronson e te kaingākautanga o te kapa Āpōpō ki ngā kuhunga mō ngā- Tuku Taonga Whakahaere Rawa Kairangi me te tōngakingakitanga o te kapa nei ki ngā whakapaipaitanga ake i ngā hinonga nei e whai wāhi ai ki o tātou oranga i ia rā. Ko Kōmata o Te Rangi te taonga Nui Whakahirahira o Āpōpō, ā, he tohu o te hunga kairangi, he whakaahuahanga o te poutūmārōtanga anō hoki.
It is an honour to present Kōmata o Te Rangi as a symbol of infrastructure asset management excellence. This award will be kept and treasured by our Supreme Award Winner until it is passed on to each subsequent winner, a tradition that will be continued for many years to come.
He hōnore te tuku i a Kōmata o Te Rangi hei tohu i te kairangitanga whakahaere rawa e whakaaturia ana i konei i
tēnei rā nei i waenga i ngā hinonga toa whakamutunga. Ka pupuru, ka manaakitia ai e te Tino Toa mō ā tōna
wā ka tuku ki te toa te haere ake nei, ā, ka tīmatahia ai tēnei hei tikanga e haere tonu ai mō ngā tau hia nei te haere ake nei.
