“The AWS and Quality Assurance in Architectural Woodwork”

Presenter: Margaret Fisher, Strategic Outreach and Relations, Architectural Woodwork Institute

This event took place in 2018.

Take the mystery out of your architectural woodwork projects by learning the best way to communicate with your team from design to finish. By using the Architectural Woodwork Standards (AWS), you’ll learn to visually identify compliant vs. noncompliant products, and how to identify the differences between premium, custom, and economy-grade woodwork. Discuss the proper construction of drawers, countertops, cabinets, veneer and wall panels.

In addition, learn how to utilize the AWS to ensure quality architectural woodwork projects. And to meet your expectations for design excellence, discover how to find an accredited woodworker who knows how to fabricate, finish, and install products according to the AWS.
