Our Mission

Our mission is to create a vibrant, vital, supportive community for those engaged in the public works sector which serves to enhance the quality of life for all Queensland communities.

We do this by advancing the skills, knowledge and resources available to those involved in the planning and provision of public works and services. Our conferences are must-attend events which highlight the strong sense of community our members enjoy. 

Our leading-edge technical products are widely-adopted and our quarterly e-Journal, Engineering for Public Works is valued for its technical and industry-relevant content. 

IPWEAQ's comprehensive, innovative professional development program exceeds the needs of members and industry and our excellence awards are highly sought after.

Our globally recognised Knowledge Centre is an essential resource for anyone involved in public works in Queensland. 

As the central advisory and advocacy body within Queensland’s water industry, qldwater is a collaborative hub, working with its members to provide safe, secure and sustainable urban water services to Queensland communities.

We continue to advocate on your behalf influencing government and industry at every opportunity. Councils are financially more stable when engineers are involved in key decision making particularly with regard to asset purchases and maintenance.
