Our Story

ODF Team

Old Dominion Firestopping (ODF) is a full-service firestopping contractor specializing in the application of firestop materials to restore the fire rating required at through penetrations and joint applications. We provide all aspects of firestop services to commercial, industrial and residential construction customers.

While our company was founded in 2001, our experience dates back to 1987 when we began performing services under our affiliated company, Old Dominion Insulation. We are headquartered in Richmond with offices in Nashville, Austin and San Antonio.

We utilize Hilti, 3M, Specseal, and Tremco firestopping products. We are qualified to use any other firestop products manufactured which allows us the flexibility to meet the demands of our customers. This also provides us with unprecedented technical support when projects require outside the box solutions.

In 2005, we met the qualification standards as a firestop contractor per FMG Approval Standard 4991. Only a limited number of top tier contractors nationwide have attained this status. Reaching this high standard provides us with the capability of meeting installer qualifications set forth in most specifications. The FMG Approval Standard 4991 is an independent third party assessment of our firestopping methods and abilities which is a tribute to our dedication to the importance of firestopping.

In 2010, we qualified for the HAFSC Platinum program which further differentiates us from our competition based on our experience and quality installations.

Old Dominion Firestopping is often contracted by hospitals and other clients to perform firestop inspections to detect deficiencies in their facilities. This process is done before and after the final inspection, which is known as the JCAHO inspection in the Healthcare industry.
