English translation:in the area of the base and lateral face
Explanation:
Sockel is base, footing (of a building); wall base, podium (of a wall); socle, base of column; pedestal (take your pick according to your context)

Haupt is a header (of a girder or beam) or face (exterior face of a wall) so Seitenhaupt would be lateral header/face
