Hello
Expert:  StructuralEng replied 11 months ago.
I can help. Can you attach the drawings?
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Drawings attached
Expert:  StructuralEng replied 11 months ago.
Can you mark on the drawings with walls need beams to replace them and add dimensions? There is no designation as to which way framing is going, so it's not a complete thought yet.
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I have attached the existing wall strip out, also attached where I think steel will be going ideally would like no legs down and rest on the new perimeter walls
Expert:  StructuralEng replied 11 months ago.
Will one beam be supporting the other or will you have a post where they meet?
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I can put a post at 1,2 and 3 where they meet as indicated on the drawing and 4 can be located near where they meet, will this reduce the main steels by much if not I would leave the steel rest on the new perimeter walls
