About Us

We at Habitec envisage an urban environment richly diverse in native animal species, a world in which our future generations can live amongst the once thriving Australian Native fauna we know and love.

Habitec values the importance of progress without harming the environment and wildlife. We believe that with proper planning and design, man-made infrastructure and expansion can provide opportunities to improve the environment, rather than damaging it.

Throughout history, humans have achieved incredible advancements in technology and physical capabilities to expand and develop the world around us. As we continue to expand, it is crucial that we use our abilities to promote environmental advancements as well.

At Habitec, we are constantly exploring new ways to improve wildlife habitat, increase the safety of movement for animals, and bring wildlife closer to our surroundings. Our focus is on developing new products and systems that can be built into or around man-made infrastructure and natural environments, using native vegetation and materials to solve environmental problems.

Our team members come from diverse backgrounds in the environmental and construction sectors, and we are passionate about finding practical solutions to environmental challenges. We strive to use the most sustainable building methods and materials to ensure that we are the hands-on practical side of conservation and habitat creation.
