I am researching standards for someone (and thankfully it is not my project). The contractor did not have all the rebar in place before he began to place the concrete, and began to stick it in after the concrete was in the forms. I believe the last of it was DRIVEN in after the concrete had begun to set! Needless to say, recriminations are now flying like watermelon at a Gallagher show. Does anyone know a specific STANDARD that says that the reinforcing must be in place before the concrete placement has begun? It seems such an obvious thing to not try to retroactively stick the rebar in that in many years, I have never encountered something like that situation. It’s simply jaw-dropping, but it happened.....
