Bringing Water to Life

What we do

By integrating ecology and engineering we deliver solutions which build on the power of nature.  We create habitats & improve biodiversity, designing beautiful living waterscapes and natural water quality and wastewater treatment solutions which bring water to life. 

We are ecological designers and modular ecosystem manufacturers with a commitment to research, innovation and collaboration.

Who We Work With

Clients & Collaborators

"The units were chosen on price and quality. Also the units have the advantage of providing habitat in an otherwise ‘hard edged’ watercourse, without affecting the inherent flood risks on this section, which was important in getting the appropriate consents. The installation was carried out to a high standard and we are pleased with the end results."

Paul Fox, Senior Project Manager Canal & River Trust

"The construction phase went perfectly despite the occurrence of a major flood of the river, which allowed us to test the Biomatrix modules immediately. We are excited about the development of these gardens in the years to come. This unattractive area of the city has already completely changed thanks to these four floating gardens."

Bertrand Martin, City of Rennes Director of Gardens and Biodiversity

"We’ve been really pleased with the service provided by Biomatrix from the initial design advice through to maintenance. The engagement day with the local school was a big success. The floating ecosystem is a great product and has enabled a valuable habitat to be created in front of the new flood defence. The plants were quick to establish and required little maintenance."

Connor McIlwrath, Senior Environmental Project Manager, Environment Agency

"The project has provided us with the opportunity to increase the quality and functionality of a previously underused and aesthetically challenging piece of open water in the heart of the City."

Dave Barlow, Manchester City Coucil Green Infrastructure and Biodiversity Team

"Hastings Borough Council worked closely with the team at Biomatrix to deliver an innovative solution to improving the bathing water quality in our town. The implementation of sympathetic solutions within Alexandra Park has been a key aspect of Hastings achieving the current water classification of Good, an important achievement for our seaside town."

Stuart Alexander, Hastings Borough Council
