It’s no coincidence that Engage, a core tenet of our approach, forms the basis of our delivery process.

True ecological democracy can only be achieved when people and communities are engaged in a meaningful, transparent, empowering way that enables them to discover their full potential. Biohabitats takes engagement to an inspiring level.

Embedded in every species, in every landscape and in every community are countless stories.

Unearthing these stories is the key to discovering the patterns, models, and data necessary to restore our future. From cutting edge computer modeling programs to traditional ecological knowledge, Biohabitats applies a variety of tools and methods to ensure projects are grounded in both sound science and a deep understanding of the land.

Engineer & Design

Applied ecology often requires rigorous engineering and disciplined design to ensure successful outcomes and long-term resilience.

Consciously cultivated for over 35 years, our approach to engineering and design relies on a multi-disciplinary, highly interactive, science-based process. It is an approach that oscillates between nested-scales, responds intimately to place, and reconnects ecological processes to the broader community of life. Biohabitats’ engineering and design yields place-based solutions that support the long-term survival of all species.

  • Design Development
  • Cost/Benefit Analysis
  • Site & System Integration
  • Permitting
  • Construction Documentation
  • Peer Review

The craft of restoring mussel beds, planting a meadow, or constructing a water harvesting system requires knowledge of living systems, a sense of adaptability, and an eye toward evolution. It also requires a keen sense of construction logistics, scheduling, and cost control.

At Biohabitats, we have been perfecting the art and science of constructing natural systems for over three decades. From design-build to general contracting to construction administration, you can count on Biohabitats to bring your project to life in a way that may blow away your expectations, but never your budget.

  • General Contracting
  • Construction Administration
  • Construction Observation
  • As-Built Drawings

An astonishingly powerful tool, monitoring reveals patterns, determines trends, and predicts trajectories.

For living systems, monitoring is crucial for guiding the ever-changing course of a project and achieving long term success. But the greatest benefit of monitoring is knowledge. At Biohabitats, we reinvest this knowledge back into our practice, ensuring that every project has the greatest chance to succeed.

Life evolves, adapting to ever-changing conditions and possibilities. From evolution comes diversity, and diversity encompasses the complexity and richness that create resiliency.

These are the characteristics that define our work. We use evolution as the model for how to continue to improve upon our practice. Therefore, inherent in our approach is the capacity to change and unleash possibilities from that change.

Sustainability standards and certifications are revolutionizing the way we develop communities, construct buildings, create landscapes and restore ecosystems.

We view sustainable development primarily from an ecological lens. Halting the loss of biodiversity, conserving and protecting water and reducing the impact from resource extraction and land degradation are paramount in ensuring a sustainable future. While sustainability is a noble cause, we believe all projects should be inherently regenerative–building the capacity for ecological systems that support all life.

Our Culture

Driven by our mission. Fueled by our passion. United by our values.

With trust, respect and transparency, in an environment that celebrates risk-taking and a willingness to adapt as we gain knowledge, we work together to advance a mission that is bigger than us. And we have a lot of fun doing it.
