I am currently desinging a wood frame, two story, commecial building with cmu walls for both stair towers and elevator shaft. I also have a rather large steel beam running laterally through the building which I am running right next to the elevator core wall. My engineer has suggested burring half the beam in the elevator shaft wall to help stablize the building. My concern is that by doing this the vibration from the elevator will be felt thoughout the building since it is tied to a beam that runs the whole lenght. Has anyone used this detail and if so are my concerns unfounded?
