The new Police Services Center Zwolle was officially opened today by its director Mr. Gerrit den Uyl, mayor of of Zwolle Mr. Henk Jan Meijer and chairman of the Works Council Operational Management Police, Mr. Leo Smalt.
Within the context of a drastic reorganisation, the Dutch police force realised three new Police Services Centers (Politiedienstencentra, abbreviated PDC’s) in Eindhoven, Zwolle and Rotterdam over the last year. All were designed by cepezedinterior. The centers regionally concentrate supporting departments such as facility services, HRM, finance, communication et cetera. The Eindhoven center was officially opened already, while the Rotterdam opening takes place next week.
All the new PDC’s are housed in existing office buildings in which cepezedinterior brought about modern, pleasant and representative work environments. The layout and furnishing are based on the New Way of Work and comprise a large variety of work, conference and meeting places and spaces.
The PDC Zwolle consists of several floor fields. Each of these was strongly zoned and arranged with a gradual transition from dynamics and communality to quiet and concentration. Good orientation and distinguished identities for the different departments were realized by means of, among other things, the materialization, use of colours and graphic elements such as printed screens.
