After review, one marked copy shall
be returned to the general contractor or
manufacturer/supplier directly within
10 days. Page 10, 3.4e states, " It is the
responsibility of the design professional
to promptly review, clarify, comment
on or correct and return submittals in
such sequence as to cause no delay in
the work. " Remember that includes the
time the general contractor will take
to review and approve them before
passing them along to the design
professional. Approvals are generally
indicated by a stamp on the cover
sheet of the shop drawings.
When selecting " Approved As
Noted " rather than " Revise and
Resubmit " the design professional can
often save weeks of production time
provided the concept and all changes
are clearly marked on the drawings.
The design professional is in a unique
position to expect, demand and receive
better shop drawings
that conform to the
Standards. Ask using
the process described
in the AWI 100
Standard. See page 4,
3.2.3f.

practicality. Plan Views and Elevations
scales are determined to make it
practical to fit on the correct page size.
Details are shown full or large scale to
help visualize the form and function of
how things would be in real life. Then,
pages 5-10 show the requirements
for each custom woodwork product.
The new AWI 100 Submittal Standard
makes it convenient to use this as the
shop drawing review checklist.
Justification for asking for an
improvement by returning the drawings
with " Redraw and Resubmit " include
such errors as drawings not to scale,
no details, no materials list, no grain
direction shown, wrong size paper, no
dimensions, field dimensions written in
over architectural drawings, floor plan but
no elevations, rough sketches, etc. You
can feel confident rejecting submittals
that are just notes and dimensions
written over your architectural drawings.

THE REVIEW PROCESS.

Grain direction may vary depending
on the Aesthetic Grade of the project
and should also be shown on the
shop drawings. See the new ANSI/
AWI 0641-2019 Architectural Wood
Casework Standard for the grain layout
requirements and an example on Stileand-Rail doors and drawer fronts on
both Types of Cabinet construction.

Start review of the shop drawings
with the first page. This will be an
indicator of the quality of the shop
drawings that follow. The Title Block
must have those items listed on page
3, 3.2.1 and page 4, 3.2.2 a & b. Shop
drawings that arrive without a Title
Block are immediately a " Resubmit "
candidate.
Page 4, 3.2.2 includes Table of
Contents requirements, followed by the
first thing you evaluate at 3.2.3 b & c;
the basic physical rules. The chart on
page 4, 3.2.3.b recommends the scale
for each type of drawing, the paper
size, that pages are to be numbered,
dated and formatted as pdfs. Certain
scales are required as it comes down
to two things, relative perspective, and

Ideally, shop drawings are
reviewed by someone familiar with
the products being fabricated. For
instance, someone with an experience
of past projects in which wall paneling
was custom fabricated, would have
gained knowledge of the design and
performance/aesthetic expectations of
wall paneling and a working knowledge
of the referenced Standard and be on
the lookout for Standards requirements
for wall paneling found on page 5,
3.2.3.2. A minimum of two copies of
drawings are necessary for review.
SAMPLES BRING IDEAS TO LIFE.

There are three different types of
samples that serve different functions
and play a role in the process. These
are: control samples, range samples
and manufacturers samples.

The Control Sample -- Close to the
beginning of the design development
process, the owner made selections
for the finishes of their project. It is the
design professional's responsibility
to convey those expectations to the
woodwork company by way of control
samples, including all the materials,
hardware and finishes. These are
provided to the woodwork company.
The woodwork company's samples
are made from those examples to
convey they can provide product that
meets the owner's expectations. For
wood materials, the control sample
provided by the design professional
needs to be a minimum of 127mm [5 " ]
x 203mm [8 " ] and indicate the color,
sheen, figure/grain, and transparency.
