Moving Basement Post

Posted by Pierre on August 23rd, 2000 07:07 AM

I have a 23x24 ft basement. Supported by W8x18 and a pole in the center. DL and LL estimates equal to 110psf and a tributary distance of 12ft (about 1450 plf). I want to remove the pole or at least move it to the 18ft mark ,which will put it in an interior wall that I am building. Can I? What is the max psf allowed on W8x18? I have room for a 7.5"x3.5" glulam next to the steel. If I put this glulam up, will it support enough weight to allow for the pole movement if I put it on its on pole.
