Student Center Unveiling

In mid-January, Oakton Community College unveiled its new 7,300 SF student center, which Riley recently completed construction of. To ensure the space would fit students’ needs, a team of students worked directly with the architect on the design.

Check out the video above for more details about this modern and inviting project. (Video courtesy of WCIU’s You & Me morning show)

Industrial Growth in Pewaukee

pcp-1 safelite1


We’re happy to announce the completion of two new free-standing industrial buildings owned by 2000 Development Corporation. The first building is located in the Pewaukee Corporate Park, which is only 2 minutes from I-94, just east of Pewaukee Road (STH 164) and Watertown Road. Midwest Custom Bottling is leasing 2/3 of the 128,000-SF building. The other 1/3 of the building, 50,000 SF, is available for lease.

Safelite AutoGlass® is occupying the second, 40,000 SF building on Rockwood Drive in Pewaukee. Safelite is moving its current Pewaukee location to the new building, which will be used as an auto glass service center and for warehousing and distribution. This location will be open starting December 1.

Riley Construction was the Construction Manager for the 168,000-SF combined projects and Korb + Associates Architects designed the buildings.

Willkomm Breaks Ground on another Location


Riley Construction Company, Inc. has started construction on a new Willkomm Retail Development located on a 5.5-acre site at the corner of Spring Street and Green Bay Road in Racine. The development will include a Mobil gas station/convenience store, a Dunkin’ Donuts, a restaurant called The Dish, Rocket Wash, a car wash that Willkomm says will be unlike and faster than any other in the area, and a retail space to house three or four commercial tenants.

Willkomm is hoping to open the new Rocket Wash, Willkomm’s on Spring with Dunkin’ Donuts, and The Dish Restaurant in early 2017. Rocket Wash is the first conveyer-style car wash in the Racine/Kenosha area. Setting the Rocket Wash apart from the competition is the speed and quality of the wash.

The Dish is a counter-service restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch & dinner including gourmet pizza, pasta, paninis and sandwiches. A drive thru will also be available.

Giving Thanks!


We hope your holiday includes good food, family memories and a thankful heart.
The Riley Team wishes you a joyful Thanksgiving!
Riley Construction Offices will be closed on November 24 and 25.

Construction on Three Elementary Schools Completed On Time and Under Budget

Construction on the new Olympia Brown and Knapp Elementary Schools, and the newly remodeled and expanded Gifford Elementary School, finished on time and under budget!  The Racine Unified School District (RUSD) celebrated with ribbon cutting ceremonies in August, and school started on time in September. These are the first new schools built in the district in more than 40 years.

The new Olympia Brown Elementary School is located in Caledonia, WI. This science-focused school is a spacious 67,000 square feet to fit the expanding needs of the students and staff.

The new 69,000-square-foot Knapp Elementary School was built to be a community school with the goal to improve student learning while building stronger families and healthy communities. RUSD is collaborating with the United Way of Racine County to develop community programming.

Gifford Elementary School in Caledonia almost doubled its size with a large 78,000-square-foot addition. The school can now accommodate students in grades 4K-8, to fit the growing needs of the community.
