I have an 8" flitch beam that the plumber wants to put a 2-1/2" hole in and several smaller holes. I dont have the hole location plan yet. Are there any references or guidelines or is it even possible to reinforce this with steel plates on the outside. Is there any other standard way of reinforcing holes in a flitch beam? Ive done this many times with steel beams and have standard details and guidelines for hole size, location, and reinforcement. Ive never came across it in a flitch beam.
