EI is so proud of award winning iBuild Building Solutions.
iBuild, a prefabricated building supplier specialising in kit homes, granny flats and modular buildings faced a few moments of uncertainty when Victoria’s lockdowns meant the company could no longer operate their Mulgrave demonstration home and needed to pivot as did many businesses during COVID-19 pandemic.
Choosing to innovate rather than shut down, iBuild turned to a digital sales solution by successfully pioneering 3D walkthroughs for their kit homes.
According to iBuild managing director Jackson Yin, the company was focussed on modular and kit homes for the Australian market; however, by reinventing themselves online, they have attracted new overseas customers for their products.
“The online investment immediately bore fruit with a multi-million-dollar contract in Senegal contributing to a German foreign aid project,” Yin says.
In addition to delivering buildings to customers around the globe in the South Pacific and West Africa, the company has also been named as an approved tender supplier with the United Nations.
“We’re a building company that adapted to a new situation and invested in boosting our digital presence and improving our search engine optimisation. It’s something that has expanded our business beyond Australia,” he says.
With the changes that were made over the past 18 months, iBuild has been recognised with a number of awards this year.
- Winner – Australian Export Awards 2021 – Small Business
- Winner – Governor of Victoria Export Awards 2021 – Small Business
- Winner – Hume Business of the Year Award 2021
- Winner – Hume Business Awards 2021 – Manufacturing
- Winner – Hume Business Awards 2021 – Learning & Development
“It’s great to be part of such a supportive Eastern Innovation community, which has helped turbo charge iBuild’s business growth.”
