The recently released 2nd edition of Architectural Woodwork Standards (AWS) is one of the most helpful resource tools you will ever use and it is available now in both official languages.
It's a ‘must have’ for every architect, design professional, specification writer and contractor who designs with wood in any size, shape or form. And it’s the standard against which an architectural woodwork manufacturer’s product is measured to get AWMAC’s 2-year Certificate of Guarantee.
Architectural Woodwork Standards provides design professionals with a logical simple means to comprehensively specify elements of architectural woodwork, and also provides criteria to ensure that all woodwork manufacturers and installers bidding on a project compete on an equal basis and perform work of equal quality.
It’s the definitive reference manual designed to simplify and clarify guidelines, information and principles required for fabrication, finishing and installation of architectural woodwork.
