Engineered Solutions of Georgia, a company that provides commercial and residential foundation restoration and waterproofing, recently announced its placement on Inc.’s 2017 list of 5000 fastest-growing private companies in the United States. Founded in 2006, the Marietta, Ga.-based company ranked No. 4345 on the 2017 list, sharing this year’s honor with other well known companies such as Halo Top Creamery, Bitly and Orangetheory Fitness. This year marks Inc.’s 36th year recognizing America’s burgeoning private companies.
Of the company’s recent accolade, co-owner Jay Eastland said, “We are honored to rank among such prestigious private companies. This achievement is a true reflection of the value of our people and the tremendous effort they bring to Engineered Solutions of Georgia every day.”
Companies that made the Inc. 5000 list, on average, grew sixfold from 2013-2016. During that time, the economy only grew 6.7%, yet Engineered Solutions of Georgia grew 59%.
“The Inc. 5000 is the most persuasive evidence I know that the American Dream is still alive,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “The founders and CEOs of the Inc. 5000 tell us they think determination, risk taking, and vision were the keys to their success, and I believe them.”

The Path to Success
After working together in the foundation repair and basement waterproofing industry for years, in 2006, Jay Eastland and Luis Cuevas set out to create their own company that went against the norm. Together, they launched Marietta, Ga.-based Engineered Solutions of Georgia as a true construction company that focused on solving complex problems rather than providing cookie-cutter repairs. “We felt that there was a void in the marketplace for a company that offered a solutions-oriented approach–one that customized repairs to the specific needs of the project and the customer,” says Eastland, co-owner. “We also felt it was important to provide custom engineering rather than operate solely on industry standards.”
Engineered Solutions of Georgia quickly gained a reputation as a hungry company that did not walk away from tough projects. “We were and still are very committed to providing the best possible solution to a given problem.” says Cuevas, co-owner. Engineered Solutions of Georgia is innovative in means and methods, and that has led to a lot of cross-purposed and custom-manufactured equipment.
Engineered Solutions of Georgia is the only true design build contractor in its market, with an in-house Engineering Department that allows it to provide specific designs for its customers. “Our industry often operates on industry standards, but we go above and beyond by providing value through true in-house engineering,” says Cuevas.
Engineered Solutions of Georgia has two professional engineers on staff, as well as auto cad specialists. This allows the company to not only function in a design capacity, but also interact with other design professionals on projects to streamline the facilitation of cost-effective mathematically sound repairs.
