Architectural Woodwork Standards
The predecessor to the suite of AWI Standards, Architectural Woodwork Standards (AWS) is the guide for the specification, construction, and installation of interior architectural woodwork. The AWS is a definitive reference manual designed to simplify and clarify guidelines, information and principles required for fabrication, finishing, and installation of architectural woodwork. It provides design professionals with a logical and simple means of comprehensively specifying woodwork elements.
Standards Compliance, Woodwork Inspections, and Reporting
The AWI Quality Certification Program (QCP) is a valuable quality assurance organization that aids in the delivery of fine interior architectural woodwork. QCP is endorsed by the American Subcontractors Association (ASA). Woodwork compliance inspections can be obtained by the AWI Quality Certification Corporation’s network of independent expert inspectors. The only requirement for a compliance inspection is that the Architectural Woodwork Standards must have been incorporated into project’s construction documents.
