I have a question about a practice that I am seeing on one of my projects. The concrete sub is supporting the rebar mat section of the pile caps with no. 4 bars driven into the earth (earth-formed pile caps) and wire tied to the mat. I spent some years in the western United States where in many localities and States this was strictly prohibited. For some reason my current company does not have an CRSI material, but I have ordered the Standards Manual. I was hoping to get this resolved before their next pour on May 8, 2006. I was wondering if anyone has some insight or code information on this. The site is in Maryland. Thanks
