Default Drilling hole on LVL beam

hey guy,
My client drilled a 115mm hole on 300x63 LVL beam.... is there way that i can fix this problem? such as by putting two 3mm steel plate on both side of the LVL beam? or... The distance between the RHS of the support to the RHS of the round hole is 190mm. Beam is bearing 400mm on the wall.

No holes in the LVL...you will now need an engineer.

It depends on what the beam is holding and where the bearing points or point loads are on the beam. The reason I say get the engineer is because from here we would only be guessing. An engineer will give you a documented response for any fix.
Sorry, wish I could help more. Good luck.
