Kirklees District Headquarters

Working with West Yorkshire Police to deliver a flagship new headquarters for the Kirklees district.

We are working with West Yorkshire Police to deliver a flagship new headquarters for the Kirklees district. Procured using the SCAPE construction framework, it will be built on Halifax Road at the site of the former Dewsbury College and deliver approximately 10,000m2 of accommodation including a new custody suite, property store, atrium, lockers, gym, public front of house, and all associated ancillary areas.

The project will also see a full refurbishment of the attractive Oldroyd building, restoring the 1880s structure to form a key part of the site that houses the majority of key flexible office space for the new headquarters. 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.

Chief Superintendent Jim Griffiths, District Commander of Kirklees Police, said:

“It is exciting news that construction is now poised to begin on site at Halifax Road."
“We have written to local residents to advise of the start of construction and are committed to maintain communications with those living nearby as work progresses.”

Anthony Dillon, managing director for Willmott Dixon in the north said:

“We are proud to be working in partnership with West Yorkshire Police to support the modernisation of its estate, and are excited to play our part in delivering a state-of-the-art environment for those who work around the clock to keep us all safe.
“It is vital that officers have the right facilities reflecting modern ways of working, and the very best support they need to serve the people of West Yorkshire. 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.”


  • Creating a modern facility to house more than 1,100 officers and police staff.
  • Anticipated to save the force approximately £250,000 a year on its running costs.
