UFER conductor stubbing

How is the UFER ground conductor brought up before the concrete pour?
I've got a shed under construction, and it will have a subpanel. The rebar is in place and I suspect I will use direct bury acorns to attach a #6 solid copper. I would pass the conductor through one acorn to another to pick up more rebar. This would require 6' or so of exposed, rolled up copper in the way of later construction. The other option is to stub up a section of rebar to later attach the copper.
Also, are the direct bury rated bronze acorns good for concrete embedment?

Hi, I would stub the copper conductor up where you intend to install the panel, it should just come out from under the slab, make sure the contractor knows your intent, the bronze accorns should have a label stating if they are good for embedding in concrete.
