Virtually all new work is done in metric now. The work is created real world size and then plotted at some scale, metric or not. However there are some exceptions. I recall that some 15 years or so ago the US Coast Guard declared that all work submitted to them for review must be in metric. Within a month or so, the plans reviewers had told me that any plans submitted in metric would be returned without any action.
So, on the chance that a plan set is different than you prefer, I propose buying a dual format tape measure and this website, http://www.hocltd.com/metricalc.html
Again, most of the new work is metric and most of it has dual dimensions.
