Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center needed a corporate facility to encompass all community services in one location. The impressive, contemporary structure became the prototype for all future buildings in the rapidly growing park. Natural slate tile and light maple wood accents were used to highlight the glass, open structure of the building. A neutral color palette and rectilinear lines work to create an elegant rustic quality that will stand the test of time. Employee work stations are structured to enhance collaboration across teams, and all products used in developing the interior were selected for durability. More than one decade later, the regional blood center has a space that can accommodate the ever-changing needs of our community.
