I know that this is not an excepted method, but under the circumstances, I think I would cut a flat plate to stand on the post, and put a ledge on the plate that holds it in place, no sliding when building. A good adhesive for treated wood could be put on the cement to squeeze out around the piere surround the post as to trap the pole and keep the moisture out. I know it’s not the proper way, but I think it would work perfectly! The only other thing that You could do is to break the cement from around the top, to expose the re rod about a foot . make a tube, or fine one that will slide around the cement thats there. That would allow You to bring the piers up 6-12 inches, and set the plate in place!
