Collida living Passivhaus details

Owned by Willmott Dixon, Collida is delivering sustainable homes in a simple and affordable way, using Modern Methods of Construction. Fully aligned with the Construction Playbook, Collida provides flexibility of design which renders cost, programme, carbon and life cycle costing in real time.

Collida works with award winning Passivhaus architects Architype, to help create solutions that optimise design standardisation, tailored to customers’ requirements. A digitally integrated platform helps customers make faster, more informed choices.

The manufacturing and assembly delivers a fully scalable and flexible supply chain. Collida’s national manufacturing network covers key offsite components from across a range of technologies spanning the Modern Methods of Construction definition framework.

It also delivers high levels of pre-manufactured value, coupled with product certification, including NHBC Accepts, Premier and BOPAS. All of these contribute to time, cost and quality savings, whilst still being a fully mortgageable property.
