Foundation not square - Addition

R Penny
last month

Hey all, adding 350 foot room to my home with crawlspace foundation.

Contractors built the foundation and installed the floor joists before framers realized the new foundation is significantly out of square to the original home. It’s about 6 inches over 15 feet or so.

Contractor wants to add more foundation that is sistered in with rebar/epoxy to square it off. Is that a possible repair path? I am getting engineer involved to approve anything.

Any advice how to handle this?
