Introducing

A New North American
Architectural Woodwork Standard

The Woodwork Institute and Architectural Woodwork Manufacturers Association of Canada* have collaborated to bring you a progressive new woodwork standard — NAAWS 3.0.

UPDATE — The NAAWS download file now includes all errata through July 1, 2016, and bookmarks.

NAAWS 3.0 is a new comprehensive and forward-focused standard that builds on, and replaces, the Architectural Woodwork Standard (AWS). It includes upgraded and enhanced standards for:

  • Reclaimed and non-traditional materials
  • Laboratory casework
  • Seismic casework installation
  • Cabinet hardware
  • Antimicrobial surfaces

NAAWS 3.0 also provides improved, easier-to-use formatting, colorized visual aids and many interactive features.

NAAWS 3.0 includes a number of additions and improvements to the Architectural Woodwork Standard Edition 2.

Best of all, NAAWS 3.0 is free for limited use by design professionals, building owners, contractors, fabricators, installers and the educational community.

*U.S. version adopted and published by WI, effective July 1, 2016; Canadian version to be adopted and published by AWMAC at a future date.
