I have an issue on a job site where rebar dowels were fabricated too short, therefore not providing the required lap length with the vertical reinforcing. One situation occurs at a basement wall for the reinforcing at both faces, and another occurs at column piers (steel building with concrete piers on the footings). The testing agency inspecting the rebar missed that they were too short, and the footings have since been poured. So, I now need a fix prior to pouring the walls and piers to get the appropriate lap. Two solutions I thought of initially were to either provide mechanical splices for each of the rebars, or dowel and epoxy the vertical wall reinforcing into the footings. I think both are very expensive, and even though it's not my dollar, I still hate to propose such expensive fixes if not warrented. Any simple fix that I am missing?
