    Records description

    This series comprises aperture cards which are copies of VPRS 3821 Post-Metric Building Plans. VPRS 3821 consists of post-metric building plans created by VA 669 Public Works Department and subsequent agencies. These plans were created from the commencement of the metric system of weights and measures, replacing plans which were created under the previous system (VPRS 3686 Pre-Metric Building Plans).

    The plans relate to works carried out by this Department on buildings which it designed and/or constructed including government department offices, schools, hospitals, police stations and public buildings. Various types of plans including architectural, engineering, survey and services plans are included in this series.

    Each plan also contains a registration number, plan name and date.

    System of Arrangement/Control

    Each aperture card is allocated the same registration number as the hardcopy building plan to which it pertains. In this case the registration number comprises an annual single number and an alpha-numeric suffix. The annual single number comprises a year which indicated when the plan was created and a number which referred to the job number. The alpha-numeric suffix indicates the type of drawing.
