“Work safely. Go home safely.” 
The National Framers Council develops and implements
best practices to help ensure framers leave the jobsite
each day in the same health as they arrived.

Standards Committee

Purpose Statement

The purpose of the National Framers Council Standards Committee is to (1) define the typical duties and responsibilities of the Building Designer, Contractor and framing installation subcontractor to the Contractor (“Framing Trade Contractor”) so that all parties understand the division of responsibilities with respect to wood framing of multi-unit Building projects (“Commercial Wood Framing”).  This will result in future safer construction, more effective and efficient use of resources and more economical Commercial Wood Framing projects overall and (2) provide requirements to the Building Designer and Contractor on matters relating to the commercial wood framing process. Revised 1/20
