Pictured above is the Hampton Inn & Suites and the adjacent Home2 Suites with a shared parking garage located near the Las Vegas Convention Center. These buildings are two of more than 40 Hilton, Staybridge, Homewood, Springhill, Holiday Inn, Hyatt, and other similar mid-rise hotel projects from coast to coast for which Wright Engineers has provided structural engineering over the past three years. Typically the buildings utilize 4 or 5 stories of wood framing, some situated atop a concrete podium of one or two parking levels. DesignCell Architects is the architect for the majority of these projects. Wright Engineers currently has over 20 hotel projects in design or under construction.

WRIGHT IMPLEMENTS STUDENT LOAN PAYMENT ASSISTANCE
One third of those with student loan debt say it is their number 1 cause of stress – it prevents major purchases (including homes), delays saving for retirement, and often stifles choices as fundamental as food and health care. At Wright Engineers, we feel a responsibility to help our team members get out from under their student loan debt, and since there’s currently no government program for this, we’ve invented our own!
Starting in January 2019, eligible team members can enroll in Wright Engineers’ Student Loan Assistance Program where we’ll match their student loan payments dollar for dollar. We’re excited to make a positive difference for our team members. If you would like to learn how our student loan assistance program works to consider implementing it in your own company, send us an email.
