Meet our team

The Collida team is drawn from both within and outside of the construction industry. This keeps our thinking fresh and our knowledge deep.

Tim Carey

Chief Product Director

Chief Product Director

Tim is our Chief Product Director and overall business lead for Collida. An influential voice in the industry, Tim is passionate about rethinking the built environment. He is a member of the Construction Leadership Council’s Manufacturing Group, a contributor to key government and industry reports and until recently was the chairman of Build offsite – a not for profit industry organisation promoting the use of offsite and pre-manufactured solutions. A fellow of the CIOB, Tim holds an MBA from the University of Reading.

In his spare time, he is a keen guitarist and footballer, and – through Willmott Dixon’s links with UK charity Building Schools for Africa – an official prince of the Nkwen tribe in Cameroon!

Iain is our Head of Design, responsible for our Living, Learning and Wellbeing offerings. Having been with Willmott Dixon since 2003, sustainability remains a core focus. Every aspect of sustainability, from the wellbeing of the people in the homes we build, to the long-term environmental impact of our emissions and materials, drives Iain’s desire to have Collida make a difference, and to be different.

Outside of work, Iain is a self-diagnosed function junkie and enjoys making and fixing things in his shed. A lover of the outdoors, you will often find Iain journeying by bicycle or playing tag rugby.

Head of Manufacturing and Assembly

Nick is our Head of Manufacturing and Assembly. Having been with Willmott Dixon for 12 years, Nick has delivered world class facilities, which have seen him become part of the Chartered Institute of Building as a Gold Medal winner for Construction Manager of the Year.

Specialising in project management for major schemes and large scale, live modern methods of construction, Nick really enjoys challenging a design, and will not stop until a component is correct for install and importantly end use. Nick’s dedication to quality can be seen perfectly through what we can offer customers at Collida.

Away from work, Nick attempts to be a keen golfer!

Greater than the sum of our parts

Excellent outcomes can only be delivered with excellent inputs. At Collida we only work with partners who share our values – particularly our core belief that our customers deserve an experience that is not just different, but significantly better than more traditional ways of working.

We bring together leading designers, tech firms, and component manufacturers – and dare them to think differently, challenge established norms, and integrate our combined knowledge into smarter solutions.
