Having devoted his career to creating places for children, families, and communities to compete, play, learn, and connect with the outdoors, Bob heads Wight’s Parks & Recreation practice. He has led clients and teams through comprehensive master planning processes, as well as the design and construction of over $20M of spaces for both active and passive recreation.

From indoor facilities, athletic fields, and sports complexes to play environments, trails, and unique uses such as skate parks, Bob knows what matters to recreation providers as they develop and implement their capital improvement programs.

As a collaborator who delivers inventive and cost-conscious solutions, Bob has helped clients secure numerous grants and achieve energy-savings up to and including Net Zero energy, as seen at Plainfield Park District’s Prairie Activity & Recreation Center.
