Existing Pad footing


I guess to be sure it won't drop means proper compacting? Should I encase the pipe in a 2x6 box during the pour? That would mean doing the pour in 2 shots first pour up to just under the level of the pipe then wait until the concrete hardens a little (10-12 hrs as per Quikrete) place my box over the pipe and complete the pour....sounds good?

No, if anything just wrap the pipe in 1/2" expansion material. It's sold in rolls of 4" or 6" by 50' at most big box stores.

I don't understand the box thing. Any wood you place will compromise the footing for the pole. The fact that you have a 4" pipe going through the footing may compromise it.
Check with the engineer who spec'ed the footing. The pipes situation may make the footing useless in it's projected space.
