The Architectural Woodwork Institute’s (AWI) Quality Certification Program (QCP) is a valuable quality assurance tool that ensures custom, interior architectural woodwork, one of the most highly visible aspects of many construction projects. Companies earn certification through comprehensive testing and inspection, demonstrating the ability to fabricate, finish and/or install work in accordance with the quality grade criteria set forth in the Architectural Woodwork Standards (AWS).
Pierce & Pierce Millwork has bee nthrough the inspection process and earned certification in 2010 for multiple sections in the Architectural Woodwork Standards (AWS); Section 4 – Sheet Products, Section 5 – Finishing, Section 6 – Interior and Exterior Millwork, Section 7 – Stairwork and Rails, Section 8 – Wall Surfacing, Section 9 – Doors, Section 10 – Casework, Section 11 – Countertops, Section 12 – Historic Restoration Work.
Certification of a project not only attests to the work’s compliance with AWI Standards, but also confirms the woodworker’s adherence to project specifications and contract documents. In addition to familiarity with AWI Standards, a thorough understanding of the entire specification is therefore necessary not only for product quality, but also project certification.
