Project Story

We are proud to be appointed to deliver the refurbishment of Wellington House, the headquarters of West Yorkshire Combined Authority, in order to bring the building up to modern standards.

The project was procured via the Scape National Construction framework and will transform 48,300 sq ft of office space at the five-storey building in Leeds city centre, into a modern and collaborative working environment with improved accessibility for employees and visitors.

Features include the creation of flexible new office space and larger conference rooms for public meetings, with a reconfigured entrance lobby and internal layout that will allow better service to members of the public. Improvements to lifts and the entrance will ensure full accessibility for employees and visitors. Externally the structure will be re-roofed and photovoltaic panels will be installed to improve the building’s energy efficiency and reduce its carbon footprint.

In addition, there are plans to deliver a social return on investment of more than £860,000, by investing time and resources in local projects centred on employability, people skills, career workshops and mentoring opportunities.
Key Challenges
  • Work to be completed within Covid-19 government guidelines
  • Road closures to aid crane lift
  • Power shut-downs when we exchanged distribution boards
