IPWEA State Divisions and AUS-SPEC recently held the inaugural meeting of the IPWEA Standard Drawings Strategic Committee to undertake a project to offer a set of industry peer-reviewed Standard Drawings that link into the AUS-SPEC/NATSPEC specifications.
The aim is to grow the source of drawings available to members and industry and will provide three levels of drawings: National, State, and Regional/Local (the ones that only apply to a particular Council or region).
Assistance is needed to gather as many drawings as possible from across Australia. Visit the IPWEA Standard Drawings website and follow the prompts to submit your drawings (in PDF format). There are several categories under which to upload your drawings including Roads, Drainage, Water, Sewer, Environmental, General and Landscaping.The closing date for the upload of drawings is 4 April 2013. The aim of this initiative is to imbed the IPWEA Standard Drawings into planning policies in Councils across Australia through the inclusion into AUS-SPEC/NATSPEC.
