What we do

Design/build:

A delivery method that continues to be a reputable system that is widely used for construction initiatives.  Design/build facilitates, organizes and controls the process of a project to clients through the use of one contract.  Through one contract our clients have the advantage to obtain estimation assessments and pre-construction to architecture, schematics, engineering, subcontracting, construction and post-construction.  Our experienced design/build team at Wright Architects opts to collaborate together to produce a smooth project delivery and upheld our clients’ satisfaction.

Construction management:

A project-delivery system that directly handles and administers an ample variety of projects including the construction of all types of residential, commercial, and industrial structures.  Our experienced construction managers at Wright Architects are dedicated to facilitate both the design and construction phases of a project, and aim to meet the client’s budget to produce a cost efficient and a high-quality structure.  To effectively produce a high-quality structure we use cost estimating and tactful methods that lower project costs, create budgets, and coordinate all design and construction processes with all the project members.  At Wright Architects we will ensure that all project procedures are meeting our clients’ expectations and standards for a successful project outcome.

Owner’s representative:

At Wright Architects we have an experienced team of advisors that have a broad knowledge in the architectural and construction industries.  Our team carefully monitors and works closely with clients to oversee the construction of a project from the pre-construction phase to the final phase.  To deliver a successful project, we evaluate the progress of the construction project, manage the budget, solicit any additional bids and perform any other duties associated with the construction phase to its completion.  Our goal is to simplify and create a less stressful process for the client during the development of the project.

Sustainable design:

We at Wright Architects are designing projects that will significantly minimize the negative impacts on our environment and still maintain the production of high-quality infrastructures.  Our experienced team and trusted consultants work together on sustainable designs to avoid the use of non-renewable resources, while minimizing waste.  We are constantly exploring new design alternatives to incorporate renewable energy generation through the use of geothermal, photovoltaic and solar thermal energy source; to create efficient heating, cooling and ventilation systems for residential, commercial and industrial projects.
