QCP LinkedIn Forum Launched; Seeking Design Professionals to Join Us
By Randy Estabrook, QCC Executive Director
The AWI Quality Certification Program (QCP) has started its first LinkedIn Group, targeted to design professionals.  Get involved!

As many readers already know LinkedIn, the Mountain View California company which started in a living room in 2002, currently has 277,000,000 users worldwide.

So, why a linked in group? We all use LinkedIn for our CV or Curriculum Vitae, and if you are like me you have enjoyed meeting people and linking to them on LinkedIn. At first it seemed like a competition to build a network of many individuals, but I realize now that LinkedIn is so much more.  And many of these very reasons propelled QCP into this arena.

Most of us have tried to keep track of people in our industry and our network of influencers — that’s a given. But one of the most difficult things to do is stay current with a working e-mail address and phone number. LinkedIn does this seamlessly, with no personal effort. In addition, reaching stakeholders and engaging them on topics and issues of interest is the type of communication many of us are seeking…the wisdom of the crowds so-to-speak. Having a network of industry members who can engage on topics of interest while staying connected is the reason we have logged-on to this idea. So, if you are a Design Professional and are interested in our group, let us know

Take a look here.  You’ll see two discussion topics posted.  Give us your feedback; carry on a conversation with other interested Design Professionals; formulate and share your opinions; start new discussions.  Help QCP grow its network in the AWI QCP LinkedIn Group.
“QCP Talk” Webinars Roll On
By Wayne Hintz, QCP Manager
The Architectural Woodwork Institute series of one hour online forums has dedicated one webinar each quarter to the Quality Certification Program. The content and presentation is typically by a panel of QCP senior staff members.  Since last August, QCP has offered the following:
  • “QCP’s Shop Drawing Review: Purpose, Procedure, Policy” (08/14/2013)
  • “True QCP Enlightenment” (addressing a number important administrative topics) (12/13/2013)
  • “The Irresistible Force and the Movable Object – Humidity and Woodwork” (02/12/2014)
The topics are based to a large extent on the frequency with which they arise in QCP’s day-to-day conducting of business, and are therefore likely to be of interest to most AWI members and QCP participants.  This seems to be reflected in the number of attendees, which for the Feb. 12 webinar was over 50. That presentation ran some 30 minutes longer than the typically allotted one hour in order to accommodate the numerous questions and “chat chains” that were generated to discuss humidity, a topic which concerns woodworkers every day.  One dialogue between presenters and attendees concerned the very practical matter of how the Quality Certification Program can help defend woodworking firms against claims of sub-standard workmanship when the real culprit is uncontrolled job site environments for which the General Contractor is responsible.

We are excited to announce that recordings of these webinars (with both the audio and video of the PowerPoint Presentations and ensuing questions and discussion) will soon be edited and posted on the QCP website.  No login or password will be necessary to access them, so they can serve as a resource for any of your employees, even from their home PCs.

The next 2014 QCP webinar is scheduled for May 21.  Topic suggestions can be forwarded via the “Contact Us” tab on the website.  Thank you in advance for your ideas!  And, mark your calendar!
AWI Quality Certification Program Overseas Outposts
By Wayne Hintz, QCP Manager

Since its inception, nearly all of QCP’s accredited woodworking companies and certified projects have been located in the United States and Canada.  But as QCP became recognized as a unique quality assurance option for architectural millwork, and as the world’s economies became increasingly interconnected, the program has seen a steady increase of inquiries from overseas manufacturers with projects requiring certification.  In most cases these contacts are initiated because the designers are U.S. architectural firms who routinely specify QCP for their domestic projects, and then applied that practice to their foreign construction, some of which occurs in unfamiliar environments.  However, one recent Middle East certified project was designed by a firm based in India, further indicating the growing international recognition of the Architectural Woodwork Standards (AWS) and QCP certification.

Shortly after its establishment in 1995, QCP began its involvement with embassy construction or renovation, which continues to the present. Some of these were foreign embassies in Washington DC, for example those of Great Britain and the German Republic.   Others were U.S. embassies in places such as Africa, Southeast Asia, Serbia, Russia, Nepal, and South America.

More recently, QCP specified projects have included a hospital, an airport, and a corporate headquarters in the Middle East, as well as a large resort project in the Caribbean being built by China.  For this last project, QCP recently visited a Hong Kong area door manufacturer.  In 2012, QCP representatives traveled to the Doha (Qatar) airport construction site, and also inspected mock-ups of that project’s retail fixtures and paneling in the manufacturer’s facility in Amstetten, Austria. Inquiries regarding QCP accreditation are also increasing in frequency, and have included companies based in Russia, Turkey, Serbia, the United Arab Emirates, and China.  There are also Chinese, Turkish, and Saudi companies which have been accredited as QCP manufacturers within the last several years, and continue in the program today.  It should also be noted that the Architectural Woodwork Institute (AWI) has approximately 20 overseas members.

We expect that the trend toward increasing involvement in “far flung” locations will only continue.  While this is certainly an exciting development, it is also a challenge for QCP not only because of the distances, language, time zone differences, etc., but more so because the firms contacting us have typically had no previous awareness of AWI, QCP, or the Architectural Woodwork Standards.  For these companies the learning curve is indeed steep, although we have proven that it is not insurmountable.

The Quality Certification Program will periodically provide our readers with reports of how this area of its activity is progressing.


QCP: Honor System with Consequences
By Wayne Hintz, QCP Manager
In its September 2013 issue, Quality Times featured an article titled “QCP’s Defense of Your Accreditation and Prequalification”, which discussed measures the Program has routinely taken to remind Architects and Owners of potential risk associated with awarding QCP specified projects to non-QCP accredited woodworking firms.  That article elicited the following response from a QCP woodworking firm:

“This article is well written and appears to address many concerns except for consequences when QCP accredited companies do not comply with the terms and conditions of projects where QCP project certification is required.  In many cases the casegoods do not meet architectural specifications (i.e. Custom Grade) and the QCP accredited competitor is successful in getting the Architect, General Contractor, and Property Owner to let it slide.  This allows QCP accredited competitors to under bid the competition because they do not follow specifications.


I would like to see a follow-up article on how AWI/QCP is addressing this matter with non-complying QCP accredited companies.  Thank you for your time and consideration.”

Good point!  The article last September discussed cases where a company altogether outside of the Program is awarded a QCP project it cannot certify because it is not accredited to do so.  Today we will also consider projects which have been awarded to duly accredited QCP firms which do not follow through on the project’s administrative requirements (registration, fee, and certification request) or specified compliance with the Architectural Woodwork Standards (AWS), or perhaps both.   Occasionally there are honest mistakes involved, but in most instances, not so much.

When this abrogation of responsibilities occurs, the reasons for it are sometimes the same whether the woodworking firm involved is accredited or not.  Money is of course an obvious factor.  Your company could be a non-accredited firm which is either uninformed about what the certification specification means, or is absolved by the General Contractor of any obligation to meet the specification in order to lower costs.   Or, you might be a QCP company which colludes on some level with the General Contractor to ignore the QCP requirement or convince the Architect or Owner to delete the certification specification, again with cost cutting as a component.  In some cases ignoring the certification requirement may be one of the General Contractor’s conditions for awarding of the project to a QCP firm.  Admittedly, this sometimes puts the woodworker in a difficult situation in terms of its obligation to the Program and project specifications.

In cases where a QCP company is a “co-conspirator” in dropping the requirement, another important factor often at work is fear, the root cause of which is uncertainty regarding the administrative steps involved in certifying a project, or a lack of confidence with respect to the Architectural Woodwork Standards, or both.  In particular, this comes into play for a project which the QCP woodworker knows will be inspected. Such fear is for the most part self-induced, since it can be eliminated to a large extent when the millwork firm’s upper management commits to educating employees in both of these areas.  We have clear evidence that this transformation does take place when the will to do so is present.  Both AWI and QCP offer many resources to help accomplish this, many of them at no cost.  Additional means of accomplishing the necessary education are also currently under discussion within QCP.

When the project requirements have been circumvented by either a non-accredited company or a QCP participant, it is sometimes not easy for QCP to detect this because most projects are not registered by the Architect.  When this is the case, the woodworker who is awarded the project is obligated to register it under QCP Policies. However, if the woodworker does not register the project because of an agreement that the certification requirement will be dropped, the project might remain in the shadows.  Despite the best efforts of both accredited and some non-accredited companies to keep a project off the QCP radar screen, there are a number of ways that it nevertheless shows up in the sunlight anyway:

  1. QCP has for some time used the Reed Construction Data website for access to interior architectural millwork specifications of pending commercial projects.  When such a project is found on Reed, QCP will register the project itself.  This triggers a process whereby various stakeholders in the project are asked periodically if any further Milestones have occurred, (i.e. has the project been released for bid, has the project been awarded, etc.).  For these projects, “finessing” the QCP requirements becomes much more difficult.

  2. The effort by the General Contractor (GC) and woodworker to bypass project requirements is sometimes undertaken without the knowledge of the Architect or Owner.  Eventually the Architect or Owner’s representative asks the GC about inspection of the woodwork, or when certificates might be expected.  At that point the jig is up if the Architect/Owner continue to uphold the certification requirement, and there could be contractual consequences (sometimes financial) for the GC and/or woodworker.

  3. A competitor may inform QCP that a non-accredited company has been awarded a QCP project. (This is in fact encouraged by QCP Policies).  At that point, QCP will inform the Architect to verify that he/she is aware of this situation.  The Architect may not be concerned, or may confirm his/her resolve to uphold the specification as written.  Again, there could be contractual consequences for the GC or woodworker.  The Architect could insist on a “non-participant” compliance inspection, with the GC/woodworker footing the bill.

  4. In a somewhat different but related scenario, a competitor may have occasion to observe an accredited company’s work on a registered project, and conclude that it does not meet the Architectural Woodwork Standards.  If the competitor apprises QCP, a random inspection of the project millwork may be initiated if QCP believes there is any reasonable basis for it.  (QCP Policies give the program the right to inspect any registered project for any reason).

In contrast to non-accredited companies, one important difference in the potential consequences for accredited companies which choose to skirt the requirements is that they might suffer not only contractual penalties, but also could have their accreditation revoked for failure to adhere to program policies.  If that occurs, the company may re-apply to become accredited again, but it must again pay the full application fee, and go through all of the steps it went through when it was initially accredited.

There was a case recently in which revocation was contemplated for a company which failed to respond to resolution inquiries regarding a certified project.  During the course of researching the participant’s history, it came to light that certification follow-through for numerous projects had been voluntarily ignored, and fees for those registered projects had not been paid.  Partly as a result of that discovery, the company’s QCP accreditation was revoked.  They soon applied to become accredited once again, and had to go through not only the expense and effort of accreditation, but were also required (per the policies) to make good on thousands of dollars of previously unpaid project fees.  This was considered only fair to competitors that may have lost bids for those projects.

We recommend that Quality Times' readers and subscribers go back and read the September 2013 article for a summary of educational work done with Architects to help them uphold their QCP specifications.

QCP fully appreciates the challenges and competitive nature of the marketplace, especially these days.  However, the Quality Certification Program is voluntary, and upon application its participants acknowledge a pledge to uphold both the Standards and the Policies.  Circumventing project specifications, QCP Policies, or the Standards damages your fellow participants and enables an environment in which your company might be the next victim.
Q QCP Policy Watch
AWI Quality Certification Program Adopts Important Policy Revision
By Randy Estabrook, QCC Executive Director

It is the mission of the Quality Certification Corporation (QCC) to verify, inspect, and report compliance with published woodwork industry standards. It is the vision of the Quality Certification Program (QCP) to be the recognized compliance assurance process for the architectural woodwork industry.

Since its inception in 1995, QCP has evolved and grown from the initial three test projects in the Midwest to the international accreditation body it is today.

In November 2013, the QCC Board of Directors adopted a project certification guideline called the “Major vs. Minor (MvM)" deficiency criteria.  QCP representatives witness a variety of compliance on all of the projects they visit. In some cases the noncompliant items on a project (as assessed against the Architectural Woodwork Standards) are major and extensive. In other cases the noncompliant items identified are minor and isolated. The current program polices state:

“Because of the variations in wood and manufacturing processes it is understood that with respect to compliance inspection and testing, a reasonable assessment of the performance of the finished product will be weighed against absolute compliance with the Standard.”

It is the word “reasonable” that is active and which leads us to the Major vs. Minor (MvM) guidelines. These are important since assessments can be subjective. In order to administer the MvM guidelines, this criteria has been developed and will be implemented by the QCP Representatives following their March meeting. Moving forward, if a QCP project’s cumulative total of minor isolated noncompliances remains below prescribed guideline levels  those minor deficiencies may not be cause for non-labeling of projects by accredited firms.

Q The View from Here
With No Fear of Failure
By Bruce Spitz, AWI / QCC Board of Directors and Treasurer
This is the title of a bestselling book from the 80s inspired by the birth and growth of a nationally known waste management company which eventually became a public corporation traded on the N. Y. Stock Exchange.  It chronicles the story of the company’s growth and overcoming the risks associated with the startup of a new company.

Fear of failure and the associated risk appears to be a major concern of many Quality Certification Program (QCP) participants over having a QCP inspection whether that is a project inspection or a licensing inspection.   The risk of failure and the associated costs of that failure weigh heavy on the minds of QCP participants.

That fear seems to have helped transform the participants’ views of QCP Inspectors from those reviewing our production methods into the “Standards Police”.  This perception surprises the inspectors who spend many hours of their time educating and helping participants with all aspects of the inspection from shop drawings to installation.  The inspectors feel somewhat conflicted as they are not sure where to draw the line between education and verification of compliance.  In the past (and under different leadership) there was a time when inspectors were instructed to interpret the Architectural Woodwork Standards (AWS) to the letter, and not necessarily within the context of the project conditions as a whole.  While the goal was to avoid inspector subjectivity, the practical result was not always reasonable.  However, over the last two years QCP has consciously made the “inspection pendulum” swing back in the direction of a “reasonable assessment” of compliance, as allowed by QCP Policies.

The inspectors have noticed a “disconnect” on the part of the participants during inspections.  That disconnect seems to come between the companies’ commitment to meet the Standards and the actual effort on the shop floor.  That does not mean that companies are trying to cheat on the Standards or that they are not really “committed” to meet the Standards.  It means that the shop may not be ready for the inspections when they occur, i.e. not having samples ready or project fabrication at the appropriate level for inspection or they may not be up on all the changes that occurred with the Architectural Woodwork Standards (AWS). The disconect between the office and shop seems to be the cause of much of the fear factor that exists today. That is somewhat hard to understand.  Whether a job is QCP or not shouldn’t matter to AWI member companies.  As AWI members we all pledge to build our woodwork to the Standards as called out in the plans and specifications.  QCP projects don’t change the Standards or ask for any additional level of standard compliance, only that which is called out in the job.

It seems that perhaps our fear is self-induced and that better communication between the office and the floor regarding the Standards and a more thorough understanding what is in the AWS would go a long way to eliminate the “fear of failure”.  As the format and some content of the Standards have changed, our confidence in our ability to pass all aspects of an inspection may have slipped.   The good news is that all of these areas of concern are within our sphere of influence to change.   As conscientious members of AWI and well intentioned participants in the Quality Certification Program we can work towards meeting and exceeding the Standards on a daily basis to prevent any fear of failure when a QCP inspection is due.

Editor’s Note: How can QCP help?  See the article below about "Educational and Informational Resources for AWI Standards and QCP".

Educational and Informational Resources for AWI Standards and QCP

The following list is not completely comprehensive, but does reference basic resources readily available which can provide a fundamental understanding of both the Quality Certification Program and the Architectural Woodwork Standards, Edition 1.

  • Architectural Woodwork Standards, Edition 1 (AWS).  This is the current AWI Standard {developed and owned by the Architectural Woodwork Institute (AWI) in conjunction with the Woodwork Institute (WI) and the Architectural Woodwork Manufacturers Association of Canada (AWMAC)}.  The Standards are automatically provided in limited quantities free of charge to QCP applicants and AWI members.  The AWS is also available for sale on the AWI website, www.awinet.org.  Also see this website for details on other educational benefits accessible to AWI members.
The AWI also has information on its Speaker’s Bureau, which can provide experienced speakers to present PowerPoint Presentations on various topics related to the woodwork industry, including one on the Quality Certification Program.  AWI also has a Technical Services Manager, help@awinet.org, available to discuss technical issues, including those related to the Standards.
  • Quality Certification Program Policies. This publication is revised periodically by QCP’s Board of Directors, and is available for viewing at no cost on the QCP website, www.awiqcp.org. It lists the definitions and rules which govern every aspect of the program.  No user name or password is required.  It can also be downloaded in PDF format from the website to your local computer at no cost.
  • Quality Certification Program website.  In addition to posting QCP Policies, the website contains information for Design Professionals and woodworkers necessary to successfully specify and certify architectural millwork projects.  It also has all of the forms (usually in both web-based and PDF format) necessary to register projects, pay fees, request certification, and perform most other functions which may come up in the course of QCP participation.  The site also contains information on the QCP staff personnel and their functions, as well as the Board of Directors.  Contact information for the staff is available.  All staff is available Monday through Friday to answer any administrative or technical question related to QCP.  If you are a QCP participant, you can also be put in touch with the field representative assigned to your firm.
In addition, the “Find Q Firms” function allows Owners, Architects, and other interested parties to search QCP participants using a number of different criteria.
The home page of the site, www.awiqcp.org, includes a section called “Learn More About the Process”, with links to four QCP-produced “You Tube” videos which summarize basic components of the program.  The website will soon also include links to recordings of PowerPoint webinars presented by QCP senior staff on a range of topics (see “QCP Webinars Roll On” article in this Quality Times).
  • AWI News Briefs and e-Briefs are newsletters available to Architectural Woodwork Institute (AWI) members and are accessible on the AWI website, www.awinet.org, under "News".  These publications also contain articles related to the Quality Certification Program.
  • Quality Times is the QCP’s quarterly newsletter containing all manner of updates with respect to both administrative and technical matters.
  • AWI / QCP Forums are avenues for face-to-face opportunities for speaking with staff to learn more about the QCP and to gain answers to questions about specific issues.  See the article above “Opportunities to Learn More about QCP”.

Q Tech Talk
AWS Edition 2 Test Development Preview
By Shows Leary, QCP Representative and Wayne Hintz, QCP Manager

The Architectural Woodwork Standards, Edition 2 is currently slated for printing and distribution at some point in 2014. Upon its official release, it will be the basis for a new written test which will replace the Edition 1 test currently on the QCP website.  The purpose of the new test will be to measure familiarity with Edition 2 both for QCP applicants in the process of becoming accredited and also for participants fulfilling their periodic written testing requirement.

Since the first edition of the AWS was released in 2009, there have been numerous changes, additions, and deletions made to particular line items.  These have been compiled in an electronic “Errata” file found at www.aws-errata.com.  Those electronic changes will be incorporated into the hard copy of the AWS Edition 2.  The ISO-based citation numbering system will be retained, but the arrangement of the line items and layout of the Edition 2 pages have been simplified for easier reading.  Upon notification that the Edition 2 test has been posted to the website, QCP applicants and participants will be able to log in and begin answering its questions as a way to more quickly understand the new layout and content of the updated Standards.

As is now the case, applicants will be required to complete and pass the test before a plant and sample inspection may take place.  All program participants will be required to complete the Edition 2 test within six (6) months of its posting on the QCP website, regardless of the date of their most recently passed Edition 1 test. (This was the same procedure followed in 2009 at the time AWS Edition 1 replaced the previous Quality Standards Illustrated, Eighth Edition).

As was the case with the current Edition 1 test, the Edition 2 test will not have to be completed in a single sitting. You will still be able to save your progress and log in and out as necessary. We suggest you print and/or save the partially completed versions until you complete and submit the test. We recommend that before taking the Edition 2 test you read and understand how to navigate through the new Standards book. These directions will be found in the User’s Guide near the beginning of the book.  Upon logging in to take the test, there will be new test instructions detailing the few simple “mechanics” of the website testing process.

Each of the 100 questions found on the current AWS Edition 1 test is selected randomly by the website based on certain criteria, including your company’s combination of accreditations.  That will also be true for the Edition 2 tests.  The following Edition 2 sample question and comments previews two important test improvements designed to eliminate ambiguity regarding the section of the Standard which contains the correct answer, and also to eliminate one source of possible error when keying in the citation which supports your selected answer:

Question:  In Section 7, TEST, joint length shall be measured with a ruler with minimum divisions of ...

A. 1"

B. 1/16"

C. 3/8"

The correct answer is “B” and the supporting Standards citation will read 7.7.6.2. The current Edition 1 test requires a “hyphen” after the first numeral to indicate the Section of the Standard in which the answer is located, i.e. “7-7.6.2”.  A significant number of test takers inadvertently substitute a period for the hyphen, which under current testing is an incorrect answer.  The Edition 2 test eliminates the hyphen altogether, thereby dramatically reducing the chance of “clerical error”.  Also, note how the new question’s wording not only directs the reader to AWS Section 7, but it also to the “Test” heading within Section 7.  This question structure appears throughout the test.  Rule of thumb:  The answer will be found in the AWS Section indicated in the test question.  An answer from a different Section will be incorrect, even if that answer is similar.  This concept will be repeated in the new instructions which will be posted along with the new test.

Within the last year there have been many improvements in the AWS test designed to clean up errors and unintended ambiguity in the questions.  The anticipated AWS Edition 2 release in 2014 and the posting of the corresponding test will mark a further important Milestone in this process.
