AWMAC and Woodwork Institute in the U.S. have collaborated to bring you the ultimate manual of woodwork standards — the North American Architectural Woodwork Standards (NAAWS).
The NAAWS manual is a FREE digital PDF with interactive elements, usable on any device, anywhere. Also available in hard copy.
Designed for use by design professionals, building owners, contractors, fabricators, installers, assemblers, project managers and site staff, the NAAWS manual sets a comprehensive set of standards. It defines the requirements of material and workmanship for the fabrication and installation of architectural woodwork.
The NAAWS manual is divided into 12 sections that each focus on and outline the minimum acceptable standards for the differing elements of architectural woodwork. Use it to understand (and meet) compliance criteria to ensure that manufacturers/installers perform work of utmost quality.
The NAAWS manual is also available to educational institutions.
