ibs is very proud to have received the Architectural Woodwork Institute's (AWI) highest grade of certification every year since 1998. This gold standard of certifications endorses IBS' ability to produce Premium Grade Architectural Millwork. This prestigious certification is hard-earned, requiring ibs to demonstrate superior craftsmanship in engineering, manufacturing, finshing, and installation. AWI's QCP participants must undergo rigorous Quality Standards examinations, plant and jobsite inspections, and be recommended by architects, general contractors and customers. IBS is one of the few companies in the metropolitan DC area to have received AWI's Premium Grade Certification.
AWI Premium Grade Certification
AWI's QCP quality standards for architectural millwork are the industry standard for the highest quality design, construction, and installation of architectural millwork. AWI has defined three quality grades: Economy, Custom and Premium. Custom grade is the default if no grade is specified. Premium grade, the highest, is the most difficult to receive certification for and the standard for IBS on most projects. IBS has been a member of AWI since 1990.
