Company Name:
Wight & Company
Company Description:

At Wight & Company, we believe in the power exceptionally designed and built spaces have to positively impact people’s lives, whether those spaces are where they live, learn, work, or play. That’s why we pioneered integrated Design & Delivery, a model that brings architecture, engineering, and construction under one roof to streamline the complex process of bringing buildings and spaces to life. For more than 75 years, our team of professionals has blended exceptional design with sustainable planning and construction principles to create vibrant, healthy, high-performing environments. We were the first company to receive Green Firm Certification from the Sustainable Performance Institute (SPI), and are the architect of more than 80 LEED certified or registered projects. Although our work is widespread, our hometown roots are deep. Some of our most notable local achievements include master planning for the Village of Oak Brook, restoration of the magnificent Tiffany Dome at the Chicago Cultural Center, design of the $89 million New Trier High School renovation, and design and construction of The Hatchery, a new food business incubator in Chicago’s East Garfield Park community.
