Vectos provides transport planning and infrastructure design services to the property development industry. Some of its many Cardiff projects include many of the large strategic housing sites in Cardiff where Vectos provided transport planning advice through the design stages and a detailed Transport Assessment and Travel Plan to support the various planning applications. It has offices in London, Cardiff, Bristol, Birmingham, Manchester and Exeter.
Director Matt Thomas commented, “Helmont House has been our home in Cardiff for six years and with the city centre’s amenities and transport links on our doorstep it is a great fit for us. Our business in Cardiff has gone from strength to strength and we are delighted to have been able to complete our expansion within the building.”
Tim Lawley, Associate Director with Cooke & Arkwright added, “Helmont House extends to 170,000 sq ft and is now almost fully occupied. The generous on-site car parking is a key part of the offering for occupiers who include New Law, Darwin Gray, Horwich Farrelly, Meltwater and The Big Lottery Fund.”
Jeremy Symons, Director of Lease Advisory said, “After our investment team purchased Helmont House for the landlords, I was instructed to handle the outstanding and forthcoming rent reviews within the building. I have to date successfully completed 5 reviews, showing fair increases in the rent and which to a degree follows the much improved market in Cardiff, and the success of Central square “
Mark Sutton, Partner in Knight Frank’s office agency team in Cardiff said, “Comprehensively refurbished in 2009 and with office accommodation over two floors, Helmont House is a popular choice for occupiers. With the building occupancy now standing at 96 percent, the remaining suites present an opportunity for smaller occupiers to secure Grade A city centre office space. There are currently opportunities to suit businesses with five to fifteen staff and available suites on the 10th floor – 1,000 sq ft – and part ground floor – 696 sq ft.”
