At the heart of our total build concept is a multidisciplinary in-house team who can provide expertise at every stage of the development process.


Meet the experts in volumetric


We bring diverse skills, but we share a common goal: to expand the possibilities of volumetric technology and transform real estate for the better.


John Fleming,
Founder and Chairman

John Fleming has spent a long and prolific career in the construction industry and has been instrumental in the growth of volumetric housing in the UK. Having seen how volumetric systems could solve many of the challenges facing the global construction industry, he invented the Vision Volumetric system. Through endless research, testing and investment, John has driven Tide to develop increasingly ambitious volumetric buildings, establishing the business as a leader in the volumetric industry.


Christy Hayes,
Chief Executive Officer

With over three decades of experience in property investment and development, Christy has steered the growth of Tide, overseeing the delivery of more than £3.5 billion worth of assets and generating a significant pipeline of projects. Under Christy’s management and high-profile advocacy for volumetric housing, the company is leading the sector into the construction mainstream.

A total build team

As a developer and contractor of large-scale schemes, our team covers all stages of the planning, design and construction process, from feasibility analysis to aftercare. We have planning consultants who can work with local authorities to unlock difficult urban sites with record-breaking schemes.

A specialist team

Our specialist teams translate designs into volumetric form. Together alongside an array of talented professionals, from engineers, architects, construction teams and quantity surveyors, to health and safety, IT, business and financial consultants, we work to create the future of modern development.


The future is very busy for Tide and Vision, we have a strong pipeline of work with about 3,500 homes currently under construction, and that is continuously growing. We have reached a market-leading position in the sector, with a strong track record of revolutionising the way in which housing is delivered, a fantastic achievement from our team, I’m really proud of everybody involved.
