These Standards should be the only standards included when specifying millwork projects, to ensure that the highest quality of millwork is produced on every project. 

During this one hour presentation, AWMAC will give a brief history of AWMAC, explain how to include NAAWS in your architectural woodwork specifications and how our Guaranteed Inspection Service (GIS) will give architects, designers, GC’s and clients peace of mind on all future projects.
