Industrial Safety Specialist

    A safety stand down, or intensive safety meeting with a crew, is conducted here by a Wright Brothers safety specialist. A crew of nine construction workers, outfitted in hard hats and safety vests that say "Wright Brothers" on the back stand in a semi circle surrounding a man, the safety specialist, dressed the same way. The safety specialist is speaking in an animated way, with his hands, to the crew, who are standing on a packed-dirt jobsite in an urban area. Heavy equipment and Chevrolet white work trucks are seen in the background beneath a bright cloudless sky. There are no leaves on the trees, so the season is winter or very early spring.

    Since 1961, Wright Brothers has been an ever-evolving Christian owned business steeped in the traditional core values of integrity, urgency, selflessness, and hard work. This strong work ethic and emphasis on family values have shaped us into the General Contractor we are today.  As such, we hold ourselves accountable in implementing these principles and leading by example. Wright Brothers is recognized as one of the largest civil contractors in the Southeastern United States. We are an ambitious group, always looking for new adventures.
