Mike — who has 40 years of experience in offsite building — is a chartered surveyor, chartered construction manager and fellow of the Chartered Institute of Building.
He has also worked with large construction companies in Japan, Sweden, America and the Middle East to develop construction systems for eco housebuilding.
“I have always believed that offsite construction would provide the solution to the housing challenges and shortages suffered, not just in Britain, but in many parts of the world,” said Mike.

“The challenge now is to scale, both at home and abroad, but I remain convinced the market for quality modular homes is so large the opportunity is there for the taking.”
Mike has also been appointed to the board at Project Etopia.
Joseph Daniels, CEO at Project Etopia, added: “Mike is a widely acclaimed expert in offsite construction and I’m delighted to have him aboard.
“He was in the vanguard of the movement to construct offsite and capitalise on all the benefits this method of housebuilding can bring to society.”
