The specs from the engineer do not specify that is needs rebar in it. It just states a fully grouted CMU pier. The info in the blue at the top is basically the report that i received from him. Nealtw, i was going to ask if i need to make the CMU Pier up to the same height at the others, or if i could just carry the blocking that specified from the beam to the floor, from under the floor to a pier, that is maybe only a few blocks high. IE pour the footing, do the pier up two or three blocks high, then block from there.

Other piers are deisign to hold the house straight and square so just post to hold up a beam should not be a problem. a question for the engineer. But some engineers have what they are use to is the only way.
And more than a 4" footing
