Contact us

Previously known as the Institute of Municipal Engineering Australia (IMEA), the Institute of Public Works Engineering Australasia (IPWEA) is the Peak association for the public works professionals across Australia and New Zealand. IPWEA provides services to its members and advocacy on their behalf.

In recent times, the organisation has expanded its traditional local government engineering focus to broader public works, covering all tiers of government as well as the private sector, which comprises 40% of IPWEA membership. Almost all of Australia and New Zealand’s professional consultancy firms that specialise in public sector infrastructure – including roads, water, power, rail, ports and airports – have managers and staff who are members of IPWEA.
