I am trying to take down a load bearing wall and have had an engineer draw plans and advise I use a steel beam and columns to support the floor above. Do I need something to secure the columns to the floor so they do not move or can the rest direct into the concrete floor? I live in Scotland which tends to have different laws than the rest of the UK.
columns 90 x 6.3 SHS beam 178 x 102 x 19 UB
The beam will have JJI joists resting on it. I have a 3 floor terraced house and the work is being carried out on the ground floor.
