Reinforcing for Cast-in-Place Concrete Steel reinforcing bars (rebar), ASTM A615 Grade 60. Material costs are for deformed steel reinforcing rebar, including 10% lap allowance, cutting and bending. These costs also include detailed shop drawings and delivery to jobsite with identity tags per shop drawings. Add for epoxy or galvanized coating of rebar, chairs, splicing, spiral caissons and round column reinforcing, if required, from the sections following the data below. Costs per pound (Lb) and per linear foot (LF) including tie wire and tying.
