Our History

Celebrating 25 Years


Anniversaries give us a moment to pause, reflect, and look back at what we have accomplished. HELIX Environmental Planning is thankful and proud to have celebrated our 25th year in 2016. Since 1991, we have been providing high-quality environmental consulting services to private and public clients across California. Growing from a single employee in a tiny San Diego County office, to multiple locations across California, we have achieved success well beyond our initial dreams.


In 2004, HELIX launched an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP), giving our employees a vested interest in the firm’s success. In 2012, we opened our Sacramento County office, located in Folsom. In 2013, we established the Riverside County office, and in 2015 we opened doors in Orange County with an office in Irvine. Our 25th year brings the opening of our newest office location, in Carlsbad, to serve the North San Diego County area.

We celebrate our clients, with whom we have formed long-lasting, trusted relationships that have resulted in them coming back to us repeatedly with their most complex and controversial projects. We celebrate our business partners, upon whom we rely to uphold the same high standards for quality that have always been at the heart of everything we do.


Thank you for 25 extraordinary years!
