WHAT ETOPIA DOES
We design, manufacture, deliver and install a high-performance panellised build system.
Our load-bearing SIP system enables developers, housing associations and local authorities to build low-carbon, sustainable housing that exceeds the Interim Part L and The Future Home Standard for 2025.
Building Future-Proof Homes for People and Planet.
Delivering Performance for Buildings.
HIGH ENERGY PERFORMANCE
With the system an EPC rating of 107/100 is achievable. It currently meets The Future Home Standard for ‘Zero Carbon Ready’.
With the joining mechanism, buildings can achieve an airtightness of 0.32m3/hr/m2 at 50Pa. FHS requires 8.00 m3/hr/m2 at 50Pa.
Tested to BS EN 1365-1 to achieve a 60 minute fire rating. ‘The system’ (as defined in the tests) fails at seventy-seven minutes.
A typical superstructure can be completed in two days with the large panel format; as fast as volumetric and timber frame.
The U-value for the system is 0.14 W/m²K at 185mm. While the FHS requires 0.18 W/m²K at 223mm.
Savings through reduced labour, materials, waste, and time. Other potential savings include foundations, prelims, and scaffolding.
Exceeds the Interim and The Future Homes standard (2021 and 2025), and future-proofs homes from potential costly retrofits.
EFFICIENT USE OF LAND
The panel is thinner than traditional brick and block and other MMC panels which can increase the gross internal area up to 16%.
Etopia can replicate your existing designs or create brand new designs using the panellised system, which are produced with BIM.
The system can allow developers to secure green development finance and customers may secure green mortgages.
The system produces minimal waste, thus cleaner sites than traditional, reducing the risk of slips, trips, falls and falling objects.
SCALE OF PRODUCTION
The scale of production is driven by orders. As such, small and large-scale schemes can be accommodated for.
Collaborative Solutions for Any Project.
01. Digital superstructure design and panellisation
Etopia will work with your architects or in-house design team to create new schemes or adapt exiting schemes into our panellised system.
02. Off-site manufacture of panels
Etopia will manufacture and deliver at the volume and rate required for your programme. Final designs can be edited up to eight weeks before delivery.
03. Delivery of system components to site
Etopia will deliver the components to site using minimal trips, due to being manufactured off site.
04. Installation of build system components
Etopia’s approved installers will erect your buildings, and can work with any main contractor.
I am committed to working locally and nationally to help us reach our Net Zero goals by 2050. South East Cambridgeshire is at the forefront of many leading ideas, and I am pleased to have visited Etopia’s show home and to find out more about what they are doing to tackle climate change.”
Lucy Frazer KC MP, Minister of State in the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities
One of the key features was the potential saving on our electricity bills. The energy saving features of the house have exceeded our expectations. We opted to sell back our surplus electricity generated by the solar panels. Over the last 2 months our actual electricity bills have been £2.40 and £3.10, of course this will change over the winter months but we are now in credit leading up to this period.”

We’re trying to back real-world commercial solutions to some of the world’s biggest challenges, and what Etopia brings is environmentally friendly housing, designed for the modern world and modern technology, and it’s delivering a product that the market is desperate to see.

The Etopia system is allowing us to roll out a low-carbon solution to housebuilding regardless of a site’s size or constraints and commit to building to the Future Homes Standard now. Looking ahead, we will work closely with Etopia Group to demonstrate that SME developers are capable of tackling the UK’s climate and housing crisis.”

SNASCO is thrilled to be working with Etopia, supporting Saudi Arabia towards a sustainable future, and addressing housing shortage.
Saudi Arabia’s difficult weather conditions and housing market circumstances have lead to a demand for high performance construction fabrics and advance build methodologies: lowering energy consumption, improving liveability, and reducing the carbon footprint.”
Ricardo Costa, Chief Innovation Officer at SNASCO
I think what Etopia is doing, is really trying to change the perception of what a green home is, and really looking at that intersection of affordability in ‘green’; changing the way things have been done and looking at different business models that can tie the two together and make it accessible.
