Main beam and column

What are you thoughts on this setup?

Why do it right when you can do something else for 1/4 the price.

That’s to allow for a little flex.

This was just a quick photo when I dropped the radon monitor, I do the inspection later today. Can’t wait to check it out in depth.

Hey, it was a quick fix. LOL

Is it sitting in a pocket at the block foundation wall?

Looks like it’s floating to me, Simon. Also looks like they bolted a member each side of an existing beam, so we might not see where the existing pocketed in the wall.
No matter, it is F$cked up. LOL

In other words, a good example of “how not to beef up a built-up beam”?
