Shorefront Consulting was started by Mark Burgess in 2008 to meet the needs of the waterfront property owner. Mark has a degree in Ocean Engineering and over 25 years experience in design, development, and project management.

Mark had worked at a local Cape Cod engineering company for many years inspecting, designing and permitting shorefront structures. These included docks and piers, rock revetments, bulkheads, coastal erosion protection, dredging, and other wetlands projects at the local, state, and federal levels for both residential and commercial properties. Shorefront Consulting now provides these professional services to any waterfront property owner at affordable rates with quick response and complete integrity. view his profile
