Wight provided Design Led-Design Build services to IBEW Local 134 for their new headquarters building in the Bronzeville neighborhood of Chicago. An existing 1960's elementary school on the original site was completely transformed by demolishing the building down to its structure, then re-cladding it and attaching a new addition. The program includes a Union Hall with seating for 1,000 members, offices for business agents and executive directors, a community gymnasium, and other amenities to service the union and the community.
