HiDef, part of the BioConsult SH family, are innovative, solutions-driven, aerial survey and environmental consultancy providers. HiDef are the UK’s market leader in high-resolution digital aerial offshore wildlife surveys.
HiDef was founded in 2007 and we successfully delivered our first commercial survey in 2009. HiDef became part of the BioConsult SH family of companies in 2016. BioConsult SH are a company based in Germany that has been working in environmental consultancy since 1998. By joining the BioConsult SH family, we are part of a large, multi-disciplinary consultancy of Europe’s leading environmental scientists, marine mammal biologists and ornithologists. We specialise in environmental consultancy, conducting environmental assessment and ecological research, by onshore and offshore aerial survey, to evaluate the impact of a project across the terrestrial, coastal and marine environments. We then use the ecological statistics generated to provide companies with a solution-based report.
The work we do here at HiDef is to an industry leading standard. Many of today’s bird survey and analyses guidelines and methods are derived from work undertaken by HiDef staff.
Our team and expertise have grown considerably since 2007. This includes staff members not only at our base in Cumbria, but all over the country. This level of expertise allows us to provide environmental consultancy nationwide and overseas, supplying high quality data reports to companies, balancing the demands of sustainable development, such as wind farms, with consideration and conservation of the natural environment, both on land and at sea.
Over the years we have worked with many companies who have (like us) considered the impact of their work on our environment. We’re proud to have received fantastic feedback from our customers and know this, alongside our accreditation, will give other companies confidence in the high standard of work we do.
