    Hi I’m about to commence on a rear extension. The block and beam layout has to be drawn up and sizes spec’d by the beam supplier, and then sent through to our BCO.

    my question is, where the beams key into the existing wall, can they simply rest on the outer brick skin? (On a DPC) or do they have to go 300mm in to rest on the inner load bearing blockwork?

    would the supplier be able to tell me if this is acceptable? Or better yet my building control officer confirm this?
