Customer Question

question for structural engineer or builder.... Is it structurally safe to drill a 150mm hole in a wall directly under the padstone which is holding up a large 8" steel girder? It is for a cooker hood extractor. I know not the ideal location but do not want to relocate the cooker. I can send photos. Thanks.
