Naturalea is a company specialised in the design and execution of systems for landscape restoration and conservation and urban spaces naturalisation, prioritising Nature-Based Solutions (NBS) and specially the use of soil and water bioengineering techniques
We are pioneers in soil and water bioengineering techniques implementation, both traditional naturalistic engineering and biophysical or plant-based structural engineering. Naturalea has twenty-five years’ experience in the field, during which we have developed more than a thousand executed works and hundreds of projects.
Our most frequent areas of work include restoration of river areas, creation of wetlands, construction of natural purification systems, revegetation of ponds and lagoons, treatment of slopes, environmental restoration of degraded land, and restoration of paths and trails, among others.
The consequences of poor land management have particularly important environmental, social, and economic costs. The saturation of basins, the need to keep drains in good condition, the effects of algae vegetation in rivers forming blocks during floods, the loss of heritage…
Many situations show that failing to manage non-urban spaces properly can be very expensive. Past and present land degradation, greater mobility, and the maximisation of spaces demand that we intervene to restore and conserve the natural environment.
Our intervention must be integrated and must not cause progressive consequences in a society faced with the need to continuously invest large sums to maintain these interventions. Often, it is only necessary to redress some impacts and accelerate the natural processes of restoration.
Restoration is no longer just about planting, sowing, or building a dry-stone wall. Conservation work increasingly involves specialisation, which must be based on the knowledge and improvement of techniques to give more assurance and achieve better integration
In terms of performance, both our technicians and our field staff have extensive experience in the implementation of all available techniques.
Our services in consulting and drafting executive projects are carried out by a team made up of professionals in the field of engineering, biology, geology, environmental sciences and architecture, who determine in each case the most appropriate techniques, the most suitable species, their correct establishment and integration in the project, and their validation.
Our aim is to defend and revitalise our environment so that future generations cannot only continue to enjoy it but can also enjoy a more inviting landscape.
The essential rule is to work with and for nature.
Naturalea has the desire to offer a good service and with direct involvement in the quality of the environment, we have decided to implement an integrated system for quality management and the environment, thus betting on remaining active in the improvement of the quality of the services we offer, and with a permanent commitment to the protection and conservation of the environment in all the activities we carry out.
