Great American Insurance Group
Cincinnati, OH

Client Space

Great American Tower at Queen City Square, Cincinnati’s newest, tallest building standing at 665 feet, is not only the tallest building in Cincinnati, but certified LEED Gold. The architecturally distinctive Great American Tower - named after its lead tenant Great American Insurance - is the most environmentally sensitive building in downtown Cincinnati. Great American Tower is capped with a unique tiara, a 300-ton, 130-feet high intricate elliptical design of exposed steel and spotlights (inspired by a picture of Princess Diana of Wales wearing a crown). The Great American Tower at Queen City Square takes Cincinnati’s commercial market to new heights, while changing the skyline of the city forever. RCF Group was selected as a workspace solutions provider for the multi-floor, multi-phase project with critical requirements and tight completion dates. The project consisted of:

  • Procurement and installation of over 1,200 new workstations
  • Around the clock installation and delivery schedules involving multiple teams of installers
  • Ancillary product - conference rooms, huddle spaces, lobby,
  • lateral files, mail room/break room furniture
  • 19 floors of custom millwork/casework
  • Executive floors custom millwork
  • Flooring products for 23 floors

RCF Group provided Great American Insurance with over $1.7 million in cost savings with a collaborative, creative approach to workplace solutions. Great American’s plan was to consolidate over 2,000 employers from four different locations to the newly built Great American Tower at Queen City Square. Great American was leaving behind more than 550,000 SF of existing office space that housed more than 2,100 workstations and private offices. The RCF Group suggested cost saving options to remove, recycle and donate the remaining furniture, appliances, equipment and ancillary items. Through the decommissioning process, more than 200 local non-profit organizations were impacted.
