Concrete cracks

I am having a home built from preformed concrete walls. Upon inspection of the work we have identified a crack in the main doorframe area, as documented in the attached photo. While we will have an engineer inspect the work and specifically this defect, I am interested in comments from anyone with concrete expertise. Can this be repaired permanently with epoxy injection?

Concrete cracks

yes, sufficiently & permanently IF the steel reinforcement is properly in place AND the operator knows his stuff am curious - was this piece cracked on delivery, while in the yard, during placement, OR after installation ?
