Wightman has spent over 70 years providing the level of services that has earned the trust of our clients and helped us to become one of the most prominent engineering, surveying and architectural firms in the Midwest. Our employee-owned company provides practical solutions based on common sense for all levels of Architecture, Civil Engineering, Environmental and Surveying. 

Our firm was established in 1946 by G. L. Wightman, civil engineer and surveyor. In 1971, our company became Wightman and Associates, Inc. 

Wightman has served as consultants to all forms of public and private entities, including county, city, township, village, tribal governments, private developers, and industrial and commercial clients. Our engineering department specializes in planning, development and implementation of a wide variety of projects. WAI has gained a reputation for high quality, effective and economical consulting services and has a proven track record for development and implementation of real and usable projects. This is evidenced by the many long-term relationships with municipalities that we value, many of which are in excess of 20, 30 or even 40 years. These relationships are perpetuated with a primary client liaison who maintains open communication regarding funding opportunities, status of projects, and proactive planning recommendations. We accomplish this in part by regularly attending council meetings.


Wightman employs a continuously expanding team of professionals licensed to provide services in several states. Technical, surveying, inspection and support staff are trained to provide varying levels of expertise from the smallest daily survey tasks to the design and inspection of the largest municipal or private projects. Continuing education, varied project exposure and diverse professional backgrounds ensure that our clients will have a large pool of experts from which to draw.
