Showcasing the Aquaframe soon!
The amount of floating facilities is increasing worldwide. These comprise mainly of houses and gardens, with parking spots and complete neighbourhoods also gaining popularity. The world is slowly moving towards realizing entire floating cities.
We, at Blue Habitats, found that many of the current developments look at the structure above water level. They often don't consider the under water area or see it as a burden that needs to be maintained and tolerated by the competent authorities. Well, as a company we want to turn that paradigm around and make it the norm. We believe that underneath these structures there are hundreds of possibilities to create Blue Habitats that are suitable for aquatic life.
Whether you want to contribute to the improvement of the water quality in marine, brackish or fresh water, we can help you. The abbreviation Blue stands for Build & Learn from Underwater Ecosystems.
Blue Habitats improve the value of your floating building or object, and widens your customer base. Blue Habitats can easily be attached, removed and expanded with various options.
