Bluff Stabilization

Is your property in danger? Along Lake Michigan bluff failure is a common problem that results in loss of property and endangers the safety of property owners. Bluff failure is caused by internal water, groundwater and shoreline erosion. Gillen Marine Construction consults with licensed professional geotechnical engineers to analyze each particular property to come up with the best solution to protect your lakeside investment.
