Effective January 1, 2024, public school districts in Illinois can utilize design-build contracts to increase efficiency and effectiveness in delivering projects, thanks to the recently signed bill P.A. 103-0491.

Wight has used our unique design-build version, a Design Led Design Build delivery model, for nearly 30 years. We know from experience that it is the best way for school districts to deliver projects that enhance value while saving time and money without compromising quality. This legislation will help more school districts realize what our clients have already benefited from – there is a better way to bring value to their communities.
