Wight & Company

At Wight & Company, we inspire the human experience through innovative design. For over 80 years, our unique Design Led-Design Build approach has offered clients the most complete option of integrated architecture, engineering and construction services. We believe that good design is good business, and we’ve created a workplace where design thinking is cultivated and celebrated. Our dedicated team cultivates a dynamic, high-performance work environment that fosters innovation, collaboration and fun, and a culture that supports teamwork and thoughtful risk-taking.
Wight was the first company to receive a Green Firm Certification from the Sustainable Performance Institute (SPI). We designed the first building in the country to receive LEED certification, as well as 30% of all Net-Zero buildings in the state of Illinois.
Our work spans the globe, but our hometown roots are deep. Local notable achievements include construction of the award-winning Chicago Public Library Chinatown branch, design of the University of Chicago Booth School of Business’s Gleacher Center, design of the $89 million New Trier High School renovation, and design and construction of The Hatchery, a food business incubator in Chicago’s East Garfield Park community.
