About NSW Public Works

NSW Public Works

We are a centre of expertise in engineering, design, project management and water research and management. We deliver sustainable projects that provide long term value to our clients and the community.

Our regional network of offices allows us to serve our clients wherever they are located in NSW. This enables us to respond quickly to their emerging needs irrespective of location and contribute to employment and economic activity across NSW.

NSW Public Works provides engineering support during state emergencies such as the Thredbo Landslide, the Newcastle Earthquake, the North Coast Floods and the storms in western Sydney.  

We are accredited under the NSW Government procurement policy to manage the planning and delivery phases of construction capital works procurement greater than $1 million.  Agencies can directly engage NSW Public Works to provide services related to capital works planning and procurement and do not have to go to tender.

Our performance standards are at industry best practice. Our projects and staff are regularly acknowledged through awards from the Australian Institute of Project Management, Engineers Australia and the National Association of Women in Construction among others.
