2 different columns with 2 different loading under same pile cap

Hi there,

need help. how to place a group of piles (pile cap) under 2 column loadings, which the columns have different size. should i find the centroid? At first, i design it as 2 separate groups, but then the pile caps clashed.

The resultant of the two column loads should fall close to the centroid of the pile group if you want the piles to be equally loaded.
