Yorkshire contractor to get new HQ

Caddick Construction Group has secured planning permission to redevelop Cape House at Wakefield 41 Business Park, which is set to become the business’ new headquarters in 2024.

Building work on the new office is set to commence and will include extensive refurbishment work to repurpose and modernise the vacant two-storey building, increasing its size from 1,021m2 to 1,393m2.

Designed by DLA Architecture, the office will incorporate a new two-storey extension, a glazed front extension with a double-height atrium reception and cafe space. The development will include open-plan office space, meeting rooms, and break-out areas.

Work will include a range of measures to enhance sustainability, both in the building’s design and operations. Features will include renewable energy technologies such as photovoltaic panels, with EV charging stations also being installed.

Paul Dodsworth, Caddick Construction Group Managing Director, commented: “We are growing as a business; our team is expanding, we’re extending our geographical presence and our project portfolio is growing in all of our core sectors. It’s the perfect time for us to invest in our new headquarters, which will give us a well-connected, modern and energised office from which we’ll continue to thrive. It’s also vitally important that we create a head office that will help attract and retain staff going forward.”
