EPZ’s power plant is a vast site with a coal and biofuel plant (now closed), a small gas plant, a wind turbine park and a nuclear plant. Especially the latter is the reason EPZ generates a lot of interest from the public. To feed this interest with relevant information, EPZ has operated a visitor centre since the 1980s. EPZ asked DST to completely renew its visitor centre, from strategic concept to renovation and a new inventory.g.
A warm welcome
The old visitor centre leaned towards the defensive regarding its information and interior. Our approach for the new visitor centre was to make visitors feel welcome at EPZ. A warm welcome, at the open company EPZ is, providing honest information and room for visitors to form and fuel their own informed opinion. Full of surprising exhibits and content, topped up with moments for reflection. The result was a balanced mix of games, layered information, objects, facilities, models and displays. All set in an open and inviting area with proper facilities to receive groups of guests in a professional manner.
