Wakefield and District Housing (WDH) is the fifth largest housing organisation in England with responsibility for over 31,000 homes in the Wakefield District, occupied by some 100,000 people.

FPCR designed the new headquarters for Wakefield and District Housing (WDH). The project delivered 3,650 sqm (39,300sqft) of high quality office accommodation on three floors, in a prominent location adjacent to the M62. The building design supports WDH’s company values to be inspiring, promoting excellence, being creative and fully inclusive.

In addition to a comprehensive mix of open plan and individual offices, the building includes a director’s suite overlooking Pontefract Racecourse, board-room, training room, high-quality restaurant, prayer room and accessible facilities.  Outside, the well-landscaped areas enhance the setting and provide opportunity for external break areas.
