Shoreline and Ravine Conservation

JKC is an experienced presence in marine construction as well as shoreline and ravine conservation throughout Chicago and on the North Shore. We have served both sectors, private and public, for many years. Our team takes each project through three separate phases: definition of the problem, formulation of an environmentally-conscientious solution, and implementation of the construction to achieve the desired results.


Our solutions start with a clear identification of the problem. JKC analyzes a complex number of factors including shore form, wave movement, seasonal accretion and erosion, weather patterns, and the frequency and intensity of storms. Other solutions may include the use of existing vegetation, sand beach fill, revetments, break walls, retaining walls, or any combination of methods.
