We are building a house with basement. The garage door is 3 m wide and 2 m high, and the person in charge of drawing the plans indicates a ceiling height in basement of 2m10. Which means that there is only 10cm left for the lintel. Is this normal?

A lintel 10 cm high for a range of more than 3 meters seems actually surprising. If the construction is not too advanced, it is appropriate to ask the manufacturer and / or the contractor in charge of the structural work to ask for technical explanations.
