Expertly Installing Soldier Beams Throughout the Atlanta, GA, Area

A soldier beam is a type of support component commonly used in the construction of retaining walls. In building such a retaining wall, soldier beams—which are often also called “H” beams—are installed deep into the ground at regular intervals, usually about two to four feet apart. In between each of the soldier beams, horizontals supports known as “lagging” are used to help spread the weight of the load. As the Atlanta area’s premier specialty construction company, Engineered Solutions of Georgia is your source for soldier beams and other support structures.

What Are Soldier Beams Used For?

Some of the most common applications of soldier beams in residential and commercial use include the construction of new homes and foundation repair projects. Often called “lagging walls,” these structures are built to counteract the lateral pressure exerted by the retained soil, thereby preventing the foundation wall from bowing or overturning.

Manufacturing & Installation

Here at Engineered Solutions of Georgia, we manufacture our own soldier beams at our facility using C5.7.8 steel members, which allows us to ensure that they are of the utmost quality and will perform as intended in every application. During installation, we securely bolt them to the framing at the top of the wall and anchor them to the existing floor. To add an extra layer of support, we fill any void space between the wall and soldier beams with a durable, non-shrink grout.

“We had an excellent experience with ESOG, which built new basement retaining walls and waterproofed our basement. After spending a lot of time researching solutions and interviewing several companies, I went with ESOG because the detailed construction plan was vetted by a certified in-house engineer complete with the all-important PE stamp AND the price was competitive. All of the staff, from the salesman to the engineer to the work crews, were courteous and professional and delivered what they promised.”

“We needed to replace structural supports and reinforce the floors in the basement of our 1920s home. It was an extensive job, and ESOG came highly recommended by our home inspector and another contractor I trust. We had an excellent experience. The team performing the work was excellent. They worked so hard, stayed on task, kept us informed, and were tidy and neat. They were also polite and friendly. Our whole experience exceeded expectations in every way.”
