Infusing Culture Into Commercial Spaces

CASE STUDY

Glenview Trust Headquarters

As Kentucky’s largest independent trust company with $17 billion in client assets under care, the Glenview Trust Company wanted a space it could call its own - a landmark to serve as a reminder to employees and clients alike of its 20-year commitment to providing locally based wealth management decisions in Louisville, where its roots continue to grow.

JRA partnered with Glenview Trust to create a WORKPLACE ENVIRONMENT that would amplify the company’s unparalleled financial services experience for clients and employees alike.

OUR OBJECTIVES

Facilitate a Team-Oriented Workplace

For Glenview Trust to effectively deliver complex, multi-generational wealth management solutions to its client families, we developed a space where collaboration between a wide range of financial experts could flourish.

Establish a Sense of Permanence And Longevity

Our selection of materials such as limestone and brick masonry helped create an exterior that communicates a sense of dependability and commitment to the Louisville market.

Celebrate Natural Surroundings

Through careful planning and painstaking measures, we effectively carved the space into a hillside while retaining the natural beauty of the forest-like setting.

Create an Alluring Work Environment

The ability to attract and retain quality professionals is critical to fulfilling Glenview Trust’s client promise, so we created a workplace that instills a sense of pride within the organization.

What resulted is a landmark signifying a commitment to locally based wealth management in an elegant environment that fosters teamwork
