Floor Joist direction given by Structural Engineering

Assuming you've modelled the TB8, TB10, TB12, TB2 & J1 joists/LVLs there, it appears as per drawing to me.

Why do some plans have wasted corners?

Usually it is an aesthetic requirement to have an articulation in the facade, by the local council.

Short answer, it depends.
Long answer is more like alexp79 above. The final design will dictate where beams are required or not based on floor joist spans from the floor above.

Steel beams aren't required over walls, they are required to…
