Dear friends,
I am designing a building on first floor of a existing
building,but the walls of first floor building are not coming
exactly over the G.F.walls except outer walls which are over the
existing GF walls as such I have planed to provide floor beams on
F.F slab (wall to wall),Will this beams take the load and serve
the purpose?
with regards
rabinder shekher

Dear Mr. Ravinder,

This will defiinitely serve the purpose of taking load but the disadvantage
will be that if there are any door openings the beam will obstruct that.  In
such a case, it would be better to build a half brick of hollow block wall
over the slab till the lintel level and provide the beam at that level (wall
to wall). Any normally designed slab will be capable of taking the load of
the hollow bricks for say a height of 2.1 m.
All depends on the span of the slab and its configuration. This may be
verified.

Best regards,
G. Ajith Kumar

Dear Mr. Rabinder,
I would suggest that all internal walls be done with some light weight
material say like siphorex blocks. Also please chcek the working drawings of
the existing structure.As rightly suggested by Mr. G. Ajitkumar , any
normally designed slab will sustain a load of single brick wall for a height
of 2.10mts.Where ever possible the first floor walls should coincide with
lower GF walls. By introducing the beams at FF level you might encounter
problems at door openings. Since the structure is a load bearing structure
it is also better to tie the structure at lintel level by providing beams
with nominal reinforcement. Also provide beam all along the periphery at
roof level. I hope I have clarified your doubt.
