Scan or convert PDF to TIFF, use it as image to draw on top of it in Autocad.

2006 can not handle PDF files.

Do they not have an engineering/maintenance department where building/sprinkler plans etc are kept?

If by some odd chance my nattering was useful -- that's great, glad to help. But if it actually solved your issue, then please mark my solution as accepted :smileyhappy:
