NSW Public Works manages the Plan Services function for Government. We provide the retrieval of digitised PDF files of more than 700,000 drawings of public buildings and other infrastructure constructed by or through the 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 involved in relevant Government asset upgrade projects, compliance, and maintenance works. We are raising awareness more widely within Government, industry and the public that this important repository of building asset information is available. Our surveys have indicated a substantial acknowledgement, considerable ongoing demand, and continuing need for this service.

Plan Services offer these resources to state and local Government agencies, private sector consultants, heritage and building researchers, building trades and installation contractors, new asset owners, historians and the public.
