Hi, I'm Mark Wright, the founder of Shared Vision Limited. I approach the design of buildings from a practical standpoint. I have a construction background. For some years I served an apprenticeship as a Ceiling Fixer, working on projects around Oxford, including for the University. Working on site, I felt drawn to the professional side of the construction industry, and undertook to study for a Construction Management Degree at Oxford Brookes University. I achieved a first class honours degree, and won several awards, including for being the best full-time student on the course.
During my degree, I found a natural ability for design, and particularly 3D modelling, which I used to great effect during my industrial placement year, when I managed the design and building of a large executive home in Buckinghamshire. The client in that instance felt great pride for the design work in which they had shared an active roll, which gives them enduring pleasure to this day. I used this knowledge, and my skills to start a business, Mark Wright Design, in 2010, which remains successful, and was incorporated as Shared Vision Ltd in 2013.
In 2015, I was designated the title Chartered Architectural Technologist, a professional qualification awarded by The Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists. This qualification is awarded to individuals who have successfully demonstrated their competence across the entire spectrum of architectural design and management, from project inception to completion and certification. Shared Vision Limited is registered with CIAT, and is bound by the Institute's code of conduct.
In 2016 I was qualified as a Passivhaus Certified Designer by the Passivhaus Institute in Darmstadt, Germany. Passivhaus is a methodology used to build very highly insulated buildings with controlled ventilation to give fresh air comfort and tiny energy bills. Shared Vision Limited is a member of the Association for Environmentally Conscious Building. The AECB is an association of professionals and suppliers all dedicated to the pursuit of producing energy efficient buildings, using healthy materials that have less impact on our environment.
I have an architectural family heritage, my grandfather was an architectural model maker, and my great uncle, Lawrence Wright ARIBA, an architectural illustrator, artist, and author. Some generations of uncles earlier, George Meikel Kemp, who was a 'non-architect', entered the grand architectural competition to design a monument to Walter Scott for Scotland, under a pseudonym to disguise his position outside the establishment. He built his design and still stands still stands today - The Scott Monument in Edinburgh.
