I think there will be no problem as long as the allowable stresses and deflections are not exceeded. Check the glulam for negative tension at the top directly above the new post. Glulam designed for bottom tension are sometimes weaker at the top. Or intentionally weaken it or cut it so you will have to simple beams rather than continouos beam. Alfonso S. Quilala Jr., P.E.
