CIVENEX, co-located with the Sydney Build Expo, is set to be the largest construction, architecture and infrastructure show covering Sydney and New South Wales. Taking place at the ICC Sydney -  it covers all sectors of the construction industry. CIVENEX  provides a unique opportunity to gain valuable insight into all the upcoming construction & infrastructure projects across Sydney while taking advantage of networking opportunities with the key industry players. 

For over 60 years CIVENEX has been run by IPWEA NSW and has gained a fantastic reputation for bringing both exhibitors and key decision makers within the industry together, where they might not otherwise engage. With the successful initiative powered by IPWEA (Institute of Public Works Engineering Australasia) New South Wales, CIVENEX represents a wide range of public works and infrastructure categories including community transport, maintenance, waste management and more.

IPWEA (NSW) Mission
To enhance the quality of life of NSW Communities through excellence in public works and services.

IPWEA (NSW) Purpose
IPWEA (NSW) is established to be a charity with the purpose of advancing the public works excellence in Australia, particularly in NSW by:

  • conducting and publishing research into improvements to the processes used in public works and services to enhance NSW Communities
  • working with government at all levels to ensure that the interests of the community are represented in regard to the public decision-making process relating to public works and services, and
  • providing a forum for all people engaged in the public works to discuss best practice and enhancing the future of NSW Communities

IPWEA (NSW) Vision
IPWEA (NSW) is recognised as the leading professional association that effectively informs, connects, represents and leads public works professionals for NSW.

The Institute of Public Works Engineering Australasia - New South Wales (IPWEA (NSW) is a professional organisation providing services and advocacy for those involved in and delivering public works and engineering services to the community.

Previously known as the Institute of Municipal Engineering Australia (IMEA), the organisation has now expanded its traditional local government engineering focus to public works and thereby covering all levels of government and private practice.

The change of name reflects the new direction the organisation is embarking upon. Increasingly, engineers are working as part of multi-disciplinary teams, rather than working within traditional departments. Public works and services for all levels of government are being provided increasingly by consultants, contractors, suppliers of goods, services and machinery as well as those directly employed by government.

The evolvement of IPWEA (NSW) maintains the traditional expertise of local government engineering but by broadening the base of expertise and experience, adds a new dimension to public works professionalism in New South Wales.
