Suspended floor sinking?

Hi, we had a conservatory built approx 4 years ago, this is attached to the dining room, one full height wall and 2 dwarves, footings approx 1m deep. The issue is the floor, it is just joints attached to the walls with chipboard on top, this is sinking in the corner where the sofa sits, this floor was not intended for the weight put on it, my question is, how to solve it? Thanks in advance

Sounds like the floor needs coming up and replaced with stronger timber πŸ‘

this might not be as bad as you think get a joiner to lift the corner that is dropped and my guess is that your joists need longer fixings 120mm fishers should do
