Framing around PVC pipe in basement

| Posted in General Questions on

I’d like to frame around a 3″ PVC pipe in my basement and I’m wondering if there is a way to achieve a stable/rigid structure similar to what i drew in the picture below and not have to put tapcons through the 2 inch polyiso into the concrete walls in sections C and C1. I’d like to frame this way to maximize the floor space below the pipe. Thanks.
