Inspired by customer requirements, the company pushes the function of concrete as a material beyond its limits. Intelligence, aesthetics and emotions are the ingredients that give new meaning to Rieder concrete. Rieder has been 100 percent family-owned for more than 60 years, with production sites in Austria, Germany and the United States. Rieder is active internationally and offers customers an established network of sales partners in over 50 countries.
When it developed fibreC glassfibre reinforced concrete, Rieder shaped the vision of a thin, yet stable facade. The panels are non-combustible, and with a thickness of just 13 mm and available in different colours, surfaces, textures and shapes, offer a wide range of possibilities for designing extraordinary facades. Natural raw materials are used for the product, which create unique material characteristics.
Together for better architecture
Part of their cultural mission is to support designers, artists and architects in their creative work. The constant further development of glassfibre reinforced concrete and the know-how transfer between designers and the company assists Rieder, not only in positioning fibreC material in the facade segment, but above all to emphasise the design character of the material. This commitment reflects the relationship that Rieder, as an international business enterprise, enters into with all cultural and design projects: Artists bring their creativity, flexibility and abstract, analytical thinking to the company's development department. In return, Rieder enables the artists to let their fantasies run wild. A wide range of cultural projects, pavilions and exhibitions have always been part of the company's history.
The Heimeran Westend office complex in a prime location in Munich is characterised by visionary architecture, with an eye-catching stacked 14-storey tower. Over 13,000 sqm of state-of-the-art office space and 1,600 sqm of retail space were created across 14 floors. For the captivating facade, concrete skin panels were mounted in a clever way, creating a three-dimensional look. Eight panels in the colour silvergrey converge at each intersection point for a stunning wow factor.
