On Sunday February 25th, Team Wright’s “Ninjaneers” raced up all 1,455 steps to the 108th floor of the Stratosphere Tower to help raise funds to support the American Lung Association. The annual Fight For Air climb at the Stratosphere Tower is billed as one of the world’s premiere climbing events and attracts climbers from around the world. This year’s event was the largest ever and included local firefighters who climbed in 60 pounds of gear. Thanks to generous support from friends and colleagues, the Ninjaneers raised $5,766 to support the research, education and advocacy efforts of the American Lung Association. Pictured above after finishing in the top 10 fastest team times overall are (L-R) Tina Dias, Danny Corrigan, Brent Wright, Erik Anderson, Trevor Spina and Kelly Wenzl.
Though some areas have an oversupply resulting in slowing sales and reduced prices, overall Wright Engineers is seeing a steady stream of new luxury homes in design and construction. Homes currently on the boards or recently completed range from about 3,000 square feet to over 12,000 square feet. Pictured above is a Toll Brothers home located in Adero Canyon in Fountain Hills, Arizona that was named 2017 Home of the Year by the PBC, the largest home building show in the Western United States. Blake Scoresby in Wright’s Phoenix office provided the structural engineering as principal in charge and project manager.
