In addition to providing the materials and workforce to restore or replace barriers in marine environments, the company is producing and installing artificial reefs tailored to the local habitat.

Most recently, Danos partnered with the Coastal Conservation Association to develop 128 3D-printed concrete modules installed at South Marsh Island 235 south of Cypremort Point.

A major driver of Danos’ investment in coastal restoration services is its partnership with Natrx, a Raleigh, NC-based technology firm developing bioengineering solutions for wetland conservation.

Danos is fabricating two Natrx innovations: the patented Oysterbreak pre-cast concrete modules and the 3D-printed ExoForm™ (nicknamed “Cajun Coral”) tailored concrete units.

Both products represent significant improvements over existing options — such as riprap or bulkheading — saving time and money while offering greater protection and supporting the growth of landmass and marine habitats.
