Last Friday I spoke to Dominic Hailey from Collado Collins about retirement communities, elderly living, falling in and out of love with architecture.
Dominic has worked in architectural practice since 2001. He has a track record in the design and delivery of residential projects, and the ability to create and maintain positive, productive relationships with stakeholders, clients, and the wider project team. His experience in the residential sector, both with private developers and registered social landlords, gives him a broad base of knowledge and expertise in both design and technical areas.
Dominic joined ColladoCollins in 2015, and now leads the teams responsible for later living and care projects. Following the publication of the Just Living book, co-written with research architect and specialist Carly Dickson, he has presented the research and findings at a number of sector-specific conferences and events, including convening one of the first full panels of older people to take the stage at a conference in 2019.
