Bloomington Office Moves to New Home Base

Building design supports collaboration, offers inviting workspace

In late December, Pinnacle officially opened the doors to our new Bloomington home office at 3109 Cornelius Drive. Our new facility was designed to be functional and inviting but more importantly it was conceived with the goal to help break down barriers and reflect the way Pinnacle works and communicates.

Modern Design = Collaboration
This 30,000 sq. ft. building features a modern design with natural light, interesting views and architectural touches throughout. The openness of the building supports opportunities for spontaneous collaboration among staff.

The key design of the building is a triangle within a triangle. This concept offers a main corridor loop within the building that provides access to offices, high tech conference rooms, dining area, study space and training rooms.

A key feature of the design is an interior courtyard that provides natural light and visual access to the outside for our staff. It also offers an alternative workspace when the weather permits. Located across from the Central Illinois Regional Airport, and adjacent to McGraw Park, our new location is convenient with easy access for visitors and large amounts of green space for employees and visitors to enjoy.

The internal steel structure of the building is exposed with vaulted ceilings to give it a loft-industrial feel. The open office areas have acoustical ceiling clouds to provide sound control and add visual interest.

The lower level, includes employee locker rooms, showers and a fitness center to support our employee wellness program.

High Efficiency for Sustainability and Comfort
This is a high-performing building that embraces practical, sustainable design features. The building is equipped with a one-of-a-kind geothermal mechanical system that uses an elevated access floor. This system accommodates the heating and cooling for the building and is customizable for ambient temperatures in individual work areas. It also accommodates wire management for electrical power and communications systems and allows architectural features to be enjoyed by all without intrusion of duct work and piping overhead.

The building features expansive windows in all offices and open work spaces so natural daylight is abundant. Coupled with an interior LED motion-sensor lighting control systems the lighting is optimal and energy efficient.

We’re very proud of our new Bloomington home office and are confident that the creative design, attention to detail, and commitment to quality will allow this to be a high performing and enjoyable place for many years to come.
