Construction firm reaffirms its commitment to community engagement

Southeast SME builder, Helix Group, has doubled down on its commitment to community engagement work with the appointment of a new resident & community liaison manager, Paula Frame. 

Paula joined the organisation in February and has previously worked for two main residential contractors, where she gained experience in resident-driven work in her capacity as Resident Liaison Officer.

Paula said: “Just within my first week, I was certain I had come to the right place. A great company ethos runs through every employee and department. It’s never just about the plot of land. We’re building for people, so everything we do has got to be about the impact and strengthening those local relationships at every level.” 

Paula is already involved with reviewing and developing in-house procedures and processes to clarify how community work can be strategically embedded across all of Helix’s projects.

She recently helped to organise on-site drop-in sessions at St Margaret’s Way in Hemel Hempstead, where Helix is working with Dacorum Borough Council to build 46 new apartments and houses. Many residents came out to discuss the upcoming project. 

Carl Mulkern, managing director at Helix Group, said: “Paula’s appointment is a cause for celebration here at Helix. From day one, we’ve been a builder with a social purpose. So, it’s a milestone to have the capacity to invest in resident liaison as more than an addition to our team’s daily duties. Having Paula in place to coordinate this work will take us to the next level in terms of the impact we have across our projects.”
