Learning from the Best

Rieger Associates is the premier business park designer in Southern California, the place where the modern business park was born.

In the 50ís and 60ís there were large industrial centers springing up across the southland, but multi-tenant buildings were few and far between. These large structures crowded streets like a series of strip shopping centers, but only provided space for large industrial enterprises, making it difficult for small and medium sized businesses to fine space.

In the late 1960ís the Koll Company of Newport Beach, and itís Designers Ted Ota and Arde Wildey, endeavored to change the way industrial space was understood. They created communities of industrial space, ďBusiness Parks,Ē on large acreages. These Parks featured only minor street access, but plenty of interior circulation, major transit corridors, green belts, rest areas, and secluded parking separated from truck and delivery access. The modern business park was born.

Konrad Rieger joined Ota and Wildey in the early seventies as a young designer. He carefully studied the ins and outs of modern business parks and watched the construction of hundreds of buildings created by the pens of the elite young designers and developers of the time. Since then he has been instrumental in the design of hundreds of business parks with thousands of buildings, totaling millions of square feet of light industrial and office space.

Many architects and engineers claim to have seen the birth of modern industrial space design, but none have Konrad Riegerís depth of knowledge and experience. At Rieger Associates we believe in bringing these years of experience to the service of our clients coupled with a good understanding of current economic conditions and a vision for Southern Californiaís future. Letís design Californiaís future together!
