We create sustainable and inspiring workplaces which are technologically smart, rich in amenities and promote employee wellbeing.
Applying this philosophy, we seek to maximise Shareholder returns through delivering income growth from creative asset management and capital gains from our development activity.
Sustainable business model
Sustainability is at the core of all activities at Helical. We recognise the impact the buildings we develop have on the environment and are focused on reducing our carbon footprint throughout a property’s lifecycle, achieving Net Zero by 2030.
The Group has built a high quality and sustainable portfolio, focused in London’s tech belt, which has excellent transport links and is culturally rich. The buildings are occupied by a diverse range of tenants, but with a clear focus on the fast growing creative and tech sectors.
A customer focused approach
Helical creates buildings which appeal to occupiers looking for design led, sustainable and amenity rich workplaces, and that support talent attraction and retention. Whether the properties are built from the ground up, or are rejuvenated existing assets, they aim to be the best-in-class, respecting the culture of the area. Once complete and let, Helical applies the same philosophy of excellence to its ongoing asset management, ensuring the occupiers receive the best service.
Market knowledge and relationships
With 35 years’ experience as a property company, through multiple property cycles, Helical has developed a comprehensive knowledge of the market and built an extensive network from which it can source new development opportunities and access to capital.
Robust financial position
The Group uses gearing on a tactical basis, increasing it to accentuate returns in a rising market, or reducing debt to prepare for more challenging times whilst retaining firepower to take advantage of opportunities that arise.
A strong track record
Each of the Executive Directors has over 27 years of experience at Helical. Acting with integrity and supported by a dynamic and collaborative team, they have developed award-winning buildings that appeal to the most demanding of occupiers.
