What Does SOE Mean in Construction?

January 30, 2024

If you’re looking to find out what does soe mean in construction, you’ve come to the right place. SOE stands for standard operating environment, and is the basic operating system and software installation load that is deployed across an organization’s user base. It consists of the operating system, complimentary service packs and common apps. SOE is a great way to reduce deployment and configuration costs, improve security, decrease shadow IT (individual teams provisioning their own systems outside of the corporate process) and speed up troubleshooting and support.

During construction, excavation work often requires support to prevent soil movement that could damage surrounding structures or utilities. Our experts offer SOE services that ensure your project goes smoothly and safely.

For example, during the widening of the existing Atlantic 6 Bridge on the Van Wyck Expressway and frontage roads in Long Island, NY, the contractor required an SOE system for the new bridge abutments. The contract documents called for soldier piles with tiebacks, but these would have resulted in unacceptable track settlements on the high-traffic highway. GEODesign was asked to design a lower bracing system that eliminated the need for tiebacks.
