We have suddenly found ourselves in a position that we really do not want to be in. Our plans are incorrect.
This is a massive stumbling block as we are at the point of ordering steels but unable to proceed as it now looks like this support should in fact be knocked down and rebuilt in a different position.
The latest recommendation from our architect is to introduce an additional beam supporting the outer leaf between beam B2 and beam C supported on a “shelf” beam located directly on the other side of beam C with a steal plate between the two.
This is now with our structural engineer who now has the correct plans and is able to re do the calculations to see whether our design is in fact still possible.
To say we are frustrated and upset is an understatement.
I will of course, update you all with further news (and hopefully progress).
