Biohabitats Acquires Natural Systems International
With the added resources, Biohabitats will help clients reuse, conserve, and manage water while regenerating ecosystems and biodiversity.
Biohabitats, an ecological restoration, conservation planning, and regenerative design firm headquartered in Baltimore, Md., has recently acquired Santa Fe-based Natural Systems International (NSI), a firm dedicated to the reuse and restoration of water, wastewater, and stormwater.
NSI serves clients in 14 countries and generates annual billings of more than $1 million. With the added resources, Biohabitats will help clients reuse, conserve, and manage water while regenerating ecosystems and biodiversity. The firm’s enhanced capabilities include: design, construction, operation and maintenance services related to natural wastewater treatment; water master planning; water supply, water auditing and conservation; water reuse; and groundwater recharge.
“We are facing a major ecosystem collapse of our oceans and freshwater habitat,” said Keith Bowers, Biohabitats president. “NSI is a perfect fit as both firms are aligned in mission, passion, and dedication to helping our clients find solutions that not only benefit society, but catalyze the restoration of biodiversity on this planet.”
“This union is great news for those who want to go beyond ‘sustainable’ and actually think about regenerating healthy ecological processes, where nature and the built environment are truly integrated,” said Michael Ogden, NSI’s president. “Our clients can now do this by harnessing the collective knowledge of two of the most innovative firms in the industry.”
Founded in 1982, Biohabitats works to restore the Earth and inspire ecological stewardship out of offices serving the Bioregions of the Chesapeake/Delaware Bays, Hudson River, Great Lakes, Ohio River, Southeast, and Southern Rocky Mountains. Founded in 1989, NSI applies holistic ecological solutions to the problems that arise from the human uses of water.
