Joseph Daniels, Project Etopia
Joseph Daniels founded modular house builder and offsite construction specialist Project Etopia in 2015 at the age of just 23. His aim was to provide a turnkey solution to solving the housing crisis in the UK and around the world. This ambition was fuelled by the lack of security he faced as a young man, having been made homeless on four separate occasions.
Project Etopia creates high-end and affordable smart homes using a panelised build system, which means wall panels are constructed off site in a factory before being transported to site for assembly. Project Etopia’s houses, apartments, school buildings and shanty replacements can be built in under four weeks and at significantly reduced cost compared with traditional building methods.
Its designs incorporate pre-installed energy-efficient technology such as solar power, heat recovery, mechanical ventilation and Passive House architectural design features. Etopia also utilises ESmart, a 5G plug-in-and-play smart home system which can be used to control the settings in its homes, including blinds, lighting and music.
The serial entrepreneur has been recognised by a number of awards, including a special recognition award in the British Property Federations Tomorrows Leaders Awards. He is a champion of offsite construction and spoke at 2019's Futurebuild and Future Proptech conference.
