What QCP Certification Means
Woodwork that Exceeds Expectations
The Architectural Woodwork Institute’s (AWI) Quality Certification Program (QCP) is the stamp of approval and quality assurance tool that ensures interior architectural woodwork meets project specifications and industry best practices.
QCP licensing is earned by woodworking firms who, through rigorous and comprehensive testing and inspection of completed architectural woodwork, demonstrate the ability to fabricate, finish and/or install work to the high quality standards set out in the AWI Standards.
QCP certification has long been a mark of excellence and a testament to the craftsmanship of an interior woodworking project. It demonstrates the quality assurance of a firm’s ability to either design, produce, or install interior architectural woodwork. QCP certification demonstrates knowledge, skill, quality, and an outstanding work ethic.
What QCP Certification Means for Construction Professionals
For architects, drafters, and general contractors, earning QCP certification on a project demonstrates that:
- It was built to meet the highest industry standards of interior architectural woodwork
- The quality and craftsmanship of interior woodwork are of vital importance to the overall project
- The project was completed by a vetted and licensed QCP woodworking firm that QCP has identified as having met industry standards
