Jo Wright joined Arup Associates as Practice Leader in 2015. In her previous role as a Partner in Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios, she led design teams for a variety of award winning and innovative projects, in the UK and overseas, winning 10 National RIBA Awards, Sustainability Awards from the RIBA and the Civic Trust and the first ever BCO Innovations Award. She was responsible for leading the design of many of FCBS’s most well-known buildings including their first BREEAM Outstanding building, the Hive in Worcester.
Jo is an outstanding designer with excellent relationships with many of the UK’s most eminent construction professionals and contractors. She is committed to delivering excellence through teams which are greater than the sum of their parts. Her longstanding role as a central part of the leadership team of one of the UK’s most dynamic Architectural practices over nearly 2 decades has given her a broad appreciation of design and delivery from beginning to end and she has a passionate belief in the positive effects of good design on end users.
Jo’s membership of Footdown coaching and mentoring groups in Bath and now London has fuelled her interest in the business of Architecture and the necessity to balance design excellence with business acumen in order to deliver the highest quality outcomes for clients.
Prior to joining FCBS Jo worked for Architecture PLB, Hampshire County Council Architects Department and Bartels und Schmidt Ott in Berlin.
