Metricon – 18-Week Build Program

Terms and Conditions

Following the signing of your new home contract, Metricon will confirm to you in writing if the program construction timeframe applies to your home based on the final requirements for your home and whether your home meets the conditions set out below. If you do not receive such notification, your home is not eligible for the program and the usual contractual obligations regarding timeframes for home completion apply.

Build Time Program

An 18-week build time program is offered by Metricon on single storey homes under 30 sqr’s in Victoria that meet the following conditions.


  • Applicable to deposits from September 1, 2011
  • The home is our standard home design with standard inclusions with no structural variations including standard options; and
  • The build time program period commences when your site is scraped and/or cut by Metricon; and
  • The build time program period concludes on the date Metricon confirms to you in writing that the house has reached practical completion.
  • Building commencement dates are subject to relevant approvals, land registration, finance approvals and all client requirements being fulfilled under the contract.

The Program will not apply:

  • For two storey homes or split level homes
  • To demolition sites and/or where the home requires a traffic management plan for construction to proceed
  • To multiple unit development or redevelopment sites
  • To homes that include landscaping (including timber decking), driveways, render, retaining walls, stone benchtops, glass splashbacks, timber floors or curtains/blinds
  • To home sites with greater than 1m fall across the building area and/or where a waffle pod slab system is not being used and/or where rock excavation is required

Subject to meeting these conditions, Metricon will pay $300 per week until the home (has reached practical completion) if it does not meet the program construction timeframe.

This build time program is also subject to any extension of time clause and suspension of work clause in the New Home Contract. These timeframes will automatically be extended by 5 weeks, should the applicable construction period occur during the industry shutdown period commencing on or about 22nd December of each year.
