Procured through the SCAPE construction framework, the 10,000 sq m district HQ will be built on Halifax Road at the site of the former Dewsbury College.
Designed by Ryder Architecture, the project understood to be worth around £30m will also see a full refurbishment of the attractive Oldroyd building, restoring the 1880s structure to form a key part of the site.
Furthermore, parking will be provided through the delivery of a split level multi-storey car park and separate surface parking.
Work on the new headquarters will start later this month, with the site to be operational by the end of 2024.
Anthony Dillon, managing director for Willmott Dixon in the north said: “We are focused on leaving a lasting legacy beyond bricks and mortar and that’s why we will be supporting the Kirklees economy and West Yorkshire police initiatives by using local businesses and creating local employment opportunities whenever possible.”
