Cape Cod experiences an ever-changing coastline. There are a variety of shorefront protection solutions including stone revetments, bulkheads, gabions and biodegradable “soft solutions” (i.e.: fiber rolls, bank re-contouring, vegetation management, off-shore marsh restoration).



Pier, Dock & Stairway

Pier and dock design in saltwater or freshwater, with first hand knowledge of the various design requirements and regulations of the various local Conservation Commissions.
