Enhancing the quality of life for all Queensland communities

In 1995, IPWEAQ published 96 Drawings developed by industry for local government in Queensland. The Drawings have been updated multiple times since by the Standard Drawings Working Group (see current members right). 

Each drawing reflects the latest and best practices with up-to-date specifications for current land developments. The Drawings are referenced in council planning schemes and are an important technical reference for those working on public works projects in Queensland. Drawings offer councils, planners, developers and engineers, efficiencies with time and costs.
