    Why not deeper joists, rebated into the 'base' of the beam, and flush with the top, and no hanger?

    I was thinking about cost CG, the iBeam is a 203/203/46 so the joists would have to be at least 203mm high instead of 170mm. I will look at the cost difference though, when you take away the cost of 14 hangars and 5m plus web plate it may not be that much difference. Thanks.

    Plus the time involved in doing the steel drilling, and getting them all level?

    I don't understand

    Surely if none of them are correct, then "none" is the answer?

    You've got some poxy drawings from god knows where and are clueless, so you may want to phrase the question in a way that gets the answer you require instead of "which one is correct". Or post in the mind reading forum.

    Is that helpful enough?

    Funny how others manage to answer the question. Yet again you have shown yourself to be a complete arse Woody. As I have said before on this forum, a huge message count is clearly no indication of how helpful people are. So why don't you crawl off back to whichever rock it is you live under and leave the way clear for people who actually want to try and help.

    Christ, just tell him why you think both of them are wrong. I know at least one of those methods that has been specified by an engineer and accepted by Building Control.

    You do fit my criteria of "clueless person to be helped", but you need to work with me, I can't do it all.

    It is funny how no one as actually answered your question. But I can't be responsible if you're too inept to realise.

    But, I'll be here all week if you need me. (y)

    woody is someone that spends all day on the internet trying to pretend that he/she understands the trade. What surveyor do you know wastes all day here.

    I hope this helps:

    Alternatively you could fit straight into the web (with the additional need to provide suitable strutting to prevent rotation) but there's less info about this around - presumably because the joist hanger makers can't sell you anything if you do it that way!
