Anchoring support post to concrete footing


Recommended Posts

Is there a requirement to anchor the posts to the pier pads now?

For some time there's been a requirement to provide lateral restraint at the bottom of columns that are more than 48 inches high. (407.3)

The 2014 changes don't say anything about this, but I have been seeing all posts restrained at the bottom in new construction for the last several months. I'm not sure what's driving it.

May be local amendments. Georgia has so many that I am constantly researching the changes.
