Meet the new urban waterfront

Eco Waterfront

ECOncrete® supplies a range of modular esthetic sea wall elements, which functionally integrate into coastal infrastructure.

Since land in urban areas is often unavailable or difficult to restore to pre-settlement times, floating wetlands (FWs), an ecologically engineered technology, represent an effort to mimick the wetlands that existed long ago.

FWs hold the promise of returning ecological services like pollutant uptake and transformation, water quality improvement, wave attenuation, habitat, and aesthetic beautification.
