There are many shapes and sizes of foundation piling, with H-Pile and Pipe pile being the most common. Soldier piles and lagging walls are beams installed at a designed separation, size and depth for earth retention.
Common configurations of soldier piling include:
- Cantilevered beams and lagging
- Using beams in conjunction with tiebacks and lagging
Soldier piles and lagging walls do not work well in areas with water or fine, sandy conditions.
