Electrical Switchrooms
& Equipment Buildings

IPB is an established manufacturer of electrical switchrooms and buildings required for the housing and protection of equipment. Since manufacturing its first switchroom in 2008, IPB has built a strong reputation in the industry, based on service, quality and on-time delivery. To date, IPB has worked with a number of clients across a wide range of projects in Australia and overseas.

Design, Engineering and Project Management

IPB can innovatively design and create a wide variety of equipment buildings to suit and optimise your specific site needs.

Our equipment buildings are designed using the latest 3D modelling and engineering software, 3D modelling  gives you,  a much greater understanding of the scale of the building, particularly in relation to the positioning of equipment.

IPB is capable of delivering your electrical, mechanical and structural engineering solutions. We have expertise in fire and cyclone rated buildings.

Our work is accredited to ISO 9001, thereby assuring you of a high standard of quality and performance. You will have a dedicated Project Manager who will be your primary point of contact throughout development. Our Project Manager will work closely with your team at all times to ensure it runs smoothly and is delivered on time.

Our equipment buildings are commonly used within the oil, gas, mining, telecommunications and infrastructure industries. We manufacture electrical switchrooms, control rooms and buildings used to house equipment. Our equipment buildings are deployed across Australia and overseas.


Common applications for these buildings are :
