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.

Head of Design

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.

Terry Buchan

Visualisation Platform Manager

Terry Buchan

Visualisation Platform Manager

Since a young age Terry has been fascinated with video games and their artistry. Starting from designing game levels and their characters at his dining room table and through a degree in 3D Games Art, Terry found real passion in assembling and creating environments in the digital space. At Collida, Terry is able to combine the digital and the physical worlds to positively affect people’s lives.

As such, Terry is our Visualisation Platform Manager. He is all things CGI and his skillset is diverse, spanning through 3D modelling to video game programming. He specialises in crafting bespoke experiences using game engine technology, and is the developer of our immersive visualisation platform, a powerful communication tool unique to Collida. Using this, Collida are able to provide their customers with a better experience of their project from start to finish, giving them the power to customize, visualise, and more importantly, understand their product.

Away from the office and while he’s not entertaining his two small children, Terry is a self-confessed geek, and is infatuated with the Star Wars universe. He also has a keen interest in the sport of snooker, having spent many days of his teenage years competing and practising.

Before joining Collida, Connor specialised in the restoration and extension of historic & listed buildings. Connor’s experience ranges through a broad spectrum of sectors with a particular focus on residential and ecclesiastical architecture. Throughout his university degree and beyond Connor has also had a strong interest in sustainability and standardisation, which lead him to Collida. Since joining Collida, Connor has developed his understanding of the Passivhaus principles in the context of standardised designs; he hopes to use this to make a difference in the way we design where we live, learn and care for ourselves.

When Connor is not enjoying his spare time at a theme park, he can be found exploring culture and heritage sites across the UK, Europe and the World. Here he finds inspiration in the magnificence and beauty of ancient art and architecture.
