Residential Concrete Foundation Wall Design Parameters

In coordination with other local jurisdictions and industry, Fairfax County is adopting guidelines (PDF) which clarify Section R404, Foundation Walls, of the International Residential Code.

The new guidelines (PDF), effective September 1, 2006, address restraint requirements before placement of fill, curing times for plain concrete, brick ledge parameters and submission requirements for other foundation wall designs.

If you have any questions concerning the guidelines (PDF), please contact Paul Lynch, Director of the Residential Inspections Division at 703-324-1780, TTY 711.
