    Support beam location

    Hello,

    I see these type structures all the time at the beach, they are sun decks. I was never able to get close enough to see where they are supported underneath the platform & was wondering if anyone know where the load beams would be.

    Thanks in advance,

    Rodney

    Right under the Deck, with a transfer Columns into either Roof, or over the Building
    This would typically need to be all designed & sized by a structural engineer
