Engineers Duo Propel Prefab Business into Fast Growth Lane
When Jackson Yin and Michael Zeng immigrated to Australia from China in the late 1990s, affordable accommodation was almost impossible to find. The pair quickly concluded that building a house in Australia is among the most expensive and time-consuming places in the world to do so.
A research and development journey to find fast and cost-effective accommodation solutions culminated with the creation of iBuild, a startup specialising in the design and supply of kit homes and prefabricated buildings.
Stylish, smart and flexible, iBuild’s products are designed to sustain outstanding living and working conditions in almost any location. Our Butterfly and Lekofly modular technologies, enable our customers to build a 7-star sustainable home to lock up in 7 days or less.
iBuild's innovation has attracted worldwide media coverage, generating an international sensation.
iBuild looks to address customers’ primary pain points around housing affordability in Australia by providing prefabricated green buildings that are stronger, smarter, faster and cheaper.
"In addition to enjoying rapid growth in the residential market, we has been successful in winning a number of large tenders and contracts from the Government and Commercial sectors on affordable housing projects and aged care facilities." said Jackson Yin.
