This office building at a major nuclear power station established an entirely new image for the plant. It provides state-of-the-art office facilities for over 300 personnel that include meeting, conference and dining facilities, along with adjacent parking for 530 automobiles. While the building creates a powerful “front door” to the plant, it also facilitates and improves upon its continuing operations.
The building was designed to reflect the site’s industrial context. A sweeping steel canopy along the
western side of the building provides a shelter-like conduit for persons moving from the parking areas to
the checkpoint at the plant’s security perimeter. The building addresses the needs of the facility’s
permanent occupants along with the convenience needs of off-site/contractor personnel who report to
the site on a periodic basis.
