The Building’s History

Built by Edward Salomans in 1865, Trinity was previously named the Prince’s Chambers and was used as a showroom for Lambs Furniture.
In the 1990’s it was redeveloped and to include a large 30m atrium and additional levels.
Helical Plc has worked with award-winning architects OMI to transform the building into TRINITY – exceptionally crafted, Grade A workspace, finished to the highest standard.

Helical’s Story

Helical plc is a developer that believes in the value of quality. They secure success by crafting exceptional buildings that answer the needs of their tenants. For 30 years, Helical has been doing this across the UK. They have built a reputation for high-quality, innovative architecture that solves problems and creates inspiring spaces.
There’s no Helical ‘formula.’ Instead, they take a bespoke approach to each project, looking at the best ways to deliver quality buildings that respond positively to their surroundings.
“Helical are committed to providing exceptional workspace for our occupiers,” said Will Parry, asset management executive at Helical Plc. “We have a clear vision when it comes to location, architecture, interior design and the way the building is curated – we want people to enjoy working in a Helical building.”
In each case, that highly adaptable quality is obvious. These are not simply ‘balance sheet buildings,’ designed to maximise short-term returns. Above all, they offer imaginative, elegant, even beautiful answers to the complex needs of their occupiers and locations.


In all their work, Manchester-based OMI Architects seek out the ingredients that make the difference between a successful building or one that fails. Most importantly, they work hard to ensure no building ever suffers from being soulless and alien to the people that use it.
When working with existing buildings, OMI achieve harmony and balance between the new and the old, injecting life into what are often tired structures. OMI combine a sense of interaction and fun, whilst still respecting the dignity of the buildings and places with which they engage.
