The new beams wouldbe 2' away from the original beams and they will have 4 piers each 6'8" away from each other using4x6 posts placed on top of a concrete footing. Each beam will be made up of 2 2x8's with 1/2" plywoodin the middle.I would first dig the holes and pour the concrete footings (with rebar) and then install all of the floorjoists and then attach the rim joist beams to the ends of the floor joists. Lastly I would cut the poststo length and then place them into position causing all 4 beams to be touching all floor joists.Here's the example drawing:
