Just as great buildings must be maintained, we believe in investing in the ongoing care of our people.

We are committed to providing ongoing training and development opportunities, as well as competitive compensation and benefits.

WHA - Wright Heerema Architects is a leader in innovative architecture and workplace design.  An established, award-winning, mid-sized firm of 50+ people based in Chicago, we are large enough to work on major projects but, small enough to maintain a small firm culture that is nimble, responsive and fun.   Our office is in a historic landmark building in the Loop.  We work in an open, collaborative environment with a dynamic, creative team of architects and interior designers.  We foster a supportive, friendly, collegial culture that is driven to deliver exceptional design solutions for our clients.  For more information about WHA, visit our website www.wharchs.com.
