If you are doing the job in California, the inertia is to fully grout the walls. If the walls are fully grouted, it does not make much difference on the distribution of vertical to horizontal rebar. If the walls are partially grouted, it is best to space the vertical rebar out as far as possible without having to go to big bars. You will also find that it is more economical to eliminate vertical rebar splices and use "A" block, which is now required on Corps projects. The "A" block can be placed around the rebar as opposed to stringing the block over the top of the bar.

Any recommendations on the most economical arrangement of vertical reinforced cells and horizontal bond beams (and/or horizontal joint reinforcement) to satisfy the code?
