Customer Question

We converted an old grocery store into a theater. It has a low slope roof, steel deck sitting on bar joist which are supported by I-beams and then support columns. We have 2 support columns next to the stage and 2 in the middle of the seating area. Is it possible to relocate these columns to the side, then use another I-beam running between them to support the load they are currently supporting?
