The Fairfax County Special Inspections Program, established in 1973 after the collapse of a 26-story concrete building under construction, monitors all major commercial and residential construction projects.

Special inspections are observations, inspections and tests conducted during the construction of a building which require particular expertise to substantiate adequacy. The owner must retain a Registered Design Professional to provide these services, and bears the associated costs.

Special inspections are required by the current building code and are outlined in the Special Inspections Program publication. Associated forms are listed below in PDF and DOC formats; materials are available in alternate formats upon request.  Please contact the Building Division at 703-631-5101, TTY 711, for more information.

Please go through PLUS first to create the record number before requesting a pre-construction meeting and view the slideshow with instructions.
