New Headquarters and training facility will be in Winter Garden, Florida
Internationally recognized for their Ultimate High-Performance LiDAR 3D scanning equipment and data processing software, RIEGL USA will break ground on a new North American headquarters and training facility in Winter Garden, west of Orlando, Florida.
The ceremony is scheduled for Friday, December 6, 2019 at 1:00 p.m. at 14679 West Colonial Drive, Winter Garden, FL 34847.
RIEGL currently owns a total of 17 acres on State Road 50 in Winter Garden for the purposes of building the new facility and future expansions. The 18,500 square foot state-of-the-art facility will include:
• Modern training rooms and service areas for equipment testing and calibration of laser scanners and systems
• Customer support center, distribution hub, and sales and administration offices
• Generous break and collaboration areas, a gym and an outdoor work and relaxation area
RIEGL USA President, Johannes Riegl, Jr., said “We decided to locate our headquarters in Winter Garden because we want to offer an affordable, yet very high quality of life for our employees. Winter Garden is a beautiful, evolving city and the City authorities have been extremely welcoming and accommodating to us! Lastly, our clients from throughout Canada, the US and Mexico can enjoy the mild winter weather, theme parks, beaches and NASA space center during their stays here for training.”
This multi-million-dollar investment, located at 14707 West Colonial Drive, Winter Garden, is made possible through the strong support and confidence in the North American market for RIEGL products by RIEGL's headquarters in Austria, Europe. The new North American headquarters will be constructed by the nationally renowned DPR Construction, with an anticipated move in date of October 2020. DPR Construction will utilize RIEGL LiDAR terrestrial scanners and UAV-based technologies throughout the construction process to document and monitor the progress.
The building has been designed by award-winning Walker Design LLC, Orlando, with subcontracts to Wilson & Girgenti for mechanical, electrical and plumbing, Florida Engineering Group for site/civil design, and Premier Structural for structural design. Cushman Wakefield will be managing the project for RIEGL.
