Located next to the Mississippi River in Moline, Ill., the new IH Mississippi Valley Credit Union (IHMVCU) headquarters has completed construction. The LEO A DALY-designed building was designed to reflect an employee-centered culture.

The 92,000-sf facility consolidates about 300 employees from other locations and serves as the center of operations among the company’s 13 locations in Western Illinois and Eastern Iowa. A three-story atrium faces the Mississippi River and uses its sweeping views of the river valley to encourage occupants to take the stairs. The atrium is illuminated by a digital multiplex system that expresses the IHMVCU brand through LED lighting. The lighting can also be changed to reflect special occasions such as turning red, white, and blue on the Fourth of July.

The building’s nearly translucent north facade and punched windows on the other three building faces (which together use more than 600 panes of glass) make interior daylighting possible. Headquarters amenities include a fitness area, cafe, indoor and outdoor community spaces, lounges, fireplaces, and supplies for post-workday events or entertaining clients.
