Craftsmanship Standards

The Architectural Woodwork Institute sets standards for appearance, engineering, fabrication, finishing and installation. Builders and architects need to be aware of three AWI grades when specifying work to be done:

  • Premium
  • Custom
  • Economy

Most architectural woodwork is custom grade, with premium grade reserved for special projects or focal points, and economy representing the minimum expectation of quality, workmanship, materials and installation. 

Visit the Architectural Woodwork Institute website for the most up-to-date standards.
