Ferndale's Jansen Inc. working on Louisiana shoreline project

Posted on February 18, 2014 

A Ferndale construction company is busy in Louisiana with a federal government shoreline protection project.

Jansen Inc. was awarded a $1.1 million contractor to build 500 feet of shoreline protection near Shark Island. Jansen Inc. partnered with Bellingham's Merit Engineering to design a buoyancy module protection system. The system consists of concrete units filled with foam.

The units will be built by Bellingham Marine at its Florida facility.

The modules are expected to prevent further erosion of the shoreline, including against rising oceans from global warming, according to a company news release.
