ufer ground wire too large

My cement contractor for my new garage supplied the wire for the ground and I find out now it won't fit in the holes in the bus bar.
Is there an acceptable fix for this?
Thanks

Main panel? Perhaps a double lug, tork it correctly.
I may be wrong, but seems like a viable option.

To a sub panel. Drill and tap a new lug.
Your ground bus is connected to the can any way.

You most likely can go to the electrical supply and buy an add on oversize lug that will fit the existing ground bar utilizing two of the set screws or other method. All panel makers supply these oversize lugs. At the big box stores L and HD they are on the accessories shelf.
