Beams will always do that. Move the reference line so that they do not intersect or change the intersection group of one of them. Though, with your current reference lines, it should work if you just shorten them to match your diagram...

This is a little frustrating.
For walls, the reference lines have to touch before they will trim together.
With beams they will trim if any part of them overlaps.

The only way I know to avoid this is as Ling suggested, putting each in a different layer with different layer intersection priority numbers (or the same layer with a priority of zero).

Or you could play around with segmented beams and adjust the segment sizes so they only just touch and not overlap.
