Guidelines for Architects and Engineers


The Guidelines for Architects and Engineers set forth the parameters for the design and construction of building projects implemented by the Fairfax County Department of Public Works and Environmental Services. These guidelines provide information that needs to be incorporated into design and construction documents for the building projects in DPWES. The Guidelines for Architects and Engineers are subject to periodic revisions.

You can submit a request to add, delete, or clarify a specific section. Please note: These submissions will not be responded to immediately. They will be collected and reviewed quarterly for possible inclusion in future revisions to the Guidelines. You can also contact Building Design and Construction Division, DPWES, at 703-324-5800, TTY 711.
