Public Works manages the Plan Services function by providing retrieval of digitised PDF files of more than 700,000 drawings of public buildings and other infrastructure constructed by or through NSW Public Works over the last 200 years. Approximately 75% are architectural and engineering services drawings and 25% are drawings of the State’s major infrastructure (e.g. dams, sewerage schemes, bridges) and environment (e.g. rivers, harbours, reservoirs). These resources are for anyone interested in relevant government asset upgrades, compliance and maintenance works.

These resources are available to state and local government agencies, private sector consultants, heritage and building researchers, building trades and installation contractors, new asset owners and the general public.

Viewing of plans prior to ordering

If required, drawings can be viewed by prior arrangement with Plan Services (planservices@pwa.nsw.gov.au) at Public Works' Parramatta Office (4PSQ, 12 Darcey Street, Parramatta, NSW 2150).
