Enhancing the quality of life for all Queensland communities


Our Knowledge Centre is an essential resource for anyone involved in public works in Queensland. It is accessible only to IPWEAQ members and subscribers of our technical publications.

The IPWEAQ Knowledge Centre is fully searchable by subject, key words, speaker/author, event, type (image, podcast, articles, PowerPoint etc) or by date. It includes articles, PowerPoint presentations, podcasts, reports, case studies, recent media and other information on engineering in the public works sector of interest to Queensland practitioners.
