Building for Generations

For forty years, Wright-Ryan has been building Maine’s great spaces – built environments where Maine’s people have lived, worked, learned and thrived for generations. As we celebrate our 40th anniversary this year and look ahead to the future, learn more about our history and how we are planning to build for generations to come.

Building Maine's Great Spaces

We’ve been building in the northern New England region for 40 years. We have a singular focus: deliver the highest quality structures and service with the goals of our clients at the forefront.

Our Employees

Wright-Ryan employees are our most valuable asset. Investing in their development and future strengthens the team, provides advancement opportunities, and leads to higher quality results for our customers.  We achieve this by offering internal training programs and the opportunity for external learning and partnerships.

Our Mission

Wright-Ryan is committed to supporting institutions that contribute to the health and vibrancy of the communities where we live and work. We do this through the donation of time by our dedicated Employee Owners, and through direct financial contributions.

Our History

Tom Wright and John Ryan, our founding partners, grew up as childhood friends. Though they found their early careers satisfying, their discussions inevitably landed on a missing key ingredient: working alongside people who cared about each other and shared a commitment to excellence. The idea of Wright-Ryan, a relationship-driven construction firm, hatched from these discussions. Thirty-five years later Wright-Ryan has grown into one of the largest and most respected construction firms in northern New England.

Our Commitment to Sustainability

Wright-Ryan continues to push the envelope, finding new ways to deliver high performance buildings for our clients and our communities. Whether you decide to pursue LEED, Passive House, Living Building Challenge or any level in between, we believe sustainability in any price range is achievable and the benefits to our clients are well worth it.
