It is home to the West Yorkshire Combined Authority.

The new space is being equipped with a reconfigured entrance lobby and internal layout, as well as larger conference rooms for public meetings.

Externally the 1980s structure has been re-roofed and photovoltaic panels have been installed to provide much needed improvements to the building's energy efficiency and reduce its carbon footprint.

The refurbishment contract was awarded to Willmott Dixon Interiors via Major Works England and Northern Ireland, part of the Scape National Construction framework.

The project is expected to be completed by November 2021.

Phil Crowther, regional director at Willmott Dixon Interiors, said: “We’re making excellent progress in the delivery of modern and fit for purpose office space at Wellington House.

"It’s especially pleasing to be able to handover these high-quality new facilities, given the huge challenge of ensuring the safety of our team throughout the pandemic.

"We’re looking forward to delivering the next phase of the project and continuing the positive relationships we have forged in the local community.”

Wellington House is the latest refurbishment project to be delivered by Willmott Dixon Interiors in Yorkshire, following the transformation of Quarry House in central Leeds on behalf of a government body.
