Tub install & support


I'm relocating the tub.
Currently it is supported off a wall in line with the floor joists.
(Joists are doubled up and have a lally column too)

The new location will be perpendicular to the floor joists.
(With a total of six joists sharing that load.)

Q: Is any additional floor framing/support needed?
Thanks

A properly framed floor can support an iron tub without any extra supports---
