Enhancing the quality of life for all Queensland communities

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

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 videos, articles, PowerPoint presentations, podcasts, reports, case studies, recent media and other information on engineering in the public works sector of interest to Queensland practitioners. 

Much of the content in the Knowledge Centre is restricted to IPWEAQ members. If you are not a member, you may wish to join

Conference proceedings are only accessible to paid conference delegates or subscribers to the Proceedings. 

Content is also restricted to subscribers of our Standard Drawings and other publications eg QUDM, Lower Order Road Design Guidelines (LORDG) and Complete Streets.

If you are unable to access particular sections of the Knowledge Centre ('zero' items will display if you are not entitled to access) and wish to subscribe to our technical publications, please contact Mark.
