A new approach for tackling emerging coastal erosion challenges


Over 50% of the world’s population and $100 trillion in assets are directly exposed to risk from erosion, storm surge, and sea level rise.

Meanwhile, traditional mitigation methods are expensive and ecologically damaging. It’s time for a new approach.

We deliver high-performance, advanced resilience technologies that enable natural systems to protect climate-exposed assets at scale. Our approach is cost-effective, installs safely and efficiently, and delivers a host of positive habitat and social benefits.

A Look at Our Proven Approach

Our digital-first platform allows for a data-led, iterative approach to creating site and habitat specific, nature-based infrastructure solutions.

Our approach is comprised of intelligent digital technologies and smaller, custom installations that are easier to afford, permit, and build. This iterative approach provides you the opportunity to monitor and capture the benefits of adaptive habitat growth over time.


1. Evaluate

Identify threats and opportunities. Using our Natrx Assess technology we assess the most pressing challenge areas in your location.

2. Design

Using data gathered from our Natrx Assess analysis and other location-specific research, we design  ExoForm custom to the project's habitat, climate, and goals.


3. Produce

Site-specific ExoForm modules are formed using our patented DryForming manufacturing process.


4. Deploy

We work with installation partners to deploy ExoForms on your location quickly and safely.


5. Quantify

Using our Natrx Appraise analysis we measure, report, and quantify the project's performance.

Natrx Sustainable ExoForms™

Our patented Dry Forming™ technology provides the ability to move from digital design to physical ExoForm™ structure within hours. Dry Forming enables the unprecedented ability to optimize and deliver ExoForms™ at scale. 

  • Efficiently mass manufactured with patented digital manufacturing platform

  • 7x faster production than additive printing techniques and lower cost than traditional product (e.g. rock, riprap, concrete) implementations

  • Void design tailored to ensure local habitat thrives

  • Up to 80% reduction in carbon footprint vs. traditional products

  • Approximately 1/10th the weight of traditional materials meaning a safer, more efficient, habitat-positive install.

Natrx Adaptive Infrastructure
Benefits Overview


1. Lower Up-Front Costs: Our technology-enabled approach provides habitat-positive resilience and stakeholder engagement 

2. Improved Cash Flow Profile: Start sooner and spend less incrementally versus large, single-project CAPEX approaches

3. Free Labor: Get free protective mass from habitat growth. Achieve your goals at dramatically lower material, energy, carbon, and financial costs

4. Reduced Budget Bloat: Timing of delivery with enhanced insight into your asset-based risk helps avoid over-spec, over-spend, and out-of-control budgets

5. Capital Appreciation: A resilient, habitat-rich waterfront zone can provide capital appreciation and reduce risk of write-downs from extreme weather events


1. Customize Your Implementation: Accommodate the growth of specific local species rather than blocking them out

2. Reduce Material Usage: Our digital platform creates custom solutions that weigh a fraction of traditional methods, incorporate the natural habitat into the solution, and require the use of far less energy to deploy

3. Minimize Environmental Impact From Heavy Equipment: Natrx solutions are designed to require far lighter and safer construction equipment than traditional methods (dredges, barges, cranes, etc.)

4. Learn Over Time: Our incremental implementation provides continuous data for learning, adapting, and strengthening over time—ensuring habitat restoration and contribution to the scientific record
