Investment for a
Greater Common Good
In 2017 AWI established
a state of the art climate
controlled National Testing
Center (NTC) where for
the past year, casework
performance testing
has been conducted on
hundreds of base and wall
cabinet specimens that
represent perhaps 90%
of the industry's use of
joinery methods, fasteners
and materials for custom
cabinets. Performance
tests outcomes have
generated reams of data
that provide the AWI
Technical Committee with
an understanding of each
specimen's performance
characteristics.

joinery methods and related
fasteners. Post our baseline
casework specimen testing,
AWI can reach data driven
conclusions without the
influence of preconceived
opinion, logical speculation
and allegiance to old
boastings of "the right, the
best, the only way to build
cabinets".
AWI is proud to lead the
change of a polar-opposite
in the way the AWI Standard
is created for our industry.
We are proud of a new
and different approach to
creating industry standards
that are vetted and
approved by the industry we
serve as a non-profit trade
association.

AWI is doing for many,
what no single individual
or group could ever hope to
achieve on its own. Because
together, we can bring about
great changes for the greater
good common collective of
all industry stakeholders.
Stay tuned to AWI and
Design Solutions for more
news and updates as we
move into 2018 when AWI
begins vetting its first
Standard 0620 Finish
Carpentry Installation
through the ANSI public
comment, canvass

and balloting process.
Following closely will be
a flow of other Standard
documents and after each
receives final ANSI approval,
the New AWI Standard will
be available globally to
design professionals
and specifiers
alike.

AWI is uniquely
positioned to come to
informed and factual
conclusions about the
positive merits and
shortcomings of casework
types, the different
materials used,
