The structural engineer has specified 3x 50mmx200mm timbers bolted together at 500mm centres for my floor span. I understand and have seen timber to masonary joist hangers, but do they make a hanger for a tripple beam ? or do you use three seperate hanger (but surely they would conflict with each other ?)
advice much apreciated.

Most likely you'll have to cut into the wall to accept the beam. It may involve fitting padstones and wrap and secure the ends which sit in the wall with Damp Proof Membrane fixed with galvanised clout nails too.
