The first Habibat product was born out of a passion for wildlife and a necessity that arose for a complimentary architectural finish. Graham Jeffery, Habibat designer, started his career as an apprentice joiner and was working for a brick supplier back in 2008. He was approached by an architect who felt that the bat boxes recommended through planning would spoil the finish of the design. The products available at the time were cumbersome and did not match UK brick sizes.
With his trade experience, Graham took the design back to the drawing board to create a suitable home for bats whilst integrating them into the design of the building fabric. Initial samples of the bat boxes were sent to Holland for testing, where it was confirmed our unique V-shaped design created better ventilation for bats.
Habibat evolved in 2009 as a unique partnership between the Bat Conservation Trust and Ecosurv Ltd, to provide UK-based sustainable solutions for bats in the built environment. We bring over 40 years’ experience in both construction industry and ecological sector to support wildlife habitats, whilst helping our customers meet planning and design requirements – every time.
Working with our customers, we have continued to develop products to provide solutions for a variety of species and so our business base has grown from bats to beyond. Our range of exclusive products provide accommodation for a various species, whilst being unobtrusive and aesthetically pleasing in terms of the design build. .
