What do you intend to use for he decking?
Customer: replied 30 days ago.
Could be wooden beams like 220x45 mm with c/c 300 mm between the 10 m metal beams to hold the flooring made of 28mm thick wood or construction sheets.

I really need to see how you intend to frame this out wit the wood joists and steel beams in order to give you the correct size.

Customer: replied 29 days ago.
Wooden beams say going north to south with cc 300mm fastened inside IPE metal beams going east west. We fasten the wooden beams under with wooden beams with adjusted height to fit inside metal beams going same direction east west.
It means if inner measure of IPE beam is say 440 mm the wooden beam under the 300cc beams must also be 220mm totally 440mm height and the wooden 300cc beams(north south) can be used to fasten flooring on top and we can fasten board under as "roof" also on the 300cc beams.

We mean that distance between 10 meter beams would be around 2400mm-2500mm
And this would be the length of wooden 300mm cc beams.
