It lets us know that we’re building homes that truly allow for families to love to live in.

“At Metricon, we understand that building a home is one of the biggest decisions and investments that a family can make, so we’re honored that so many families keep choosing Metricon to build their families dream home. Its awards like this that help drive us to continually strive to design a range of  stunning homes to meet the needs of all Australian home buyers.

“Winning this award is a credit to both the display, design and Bendigo build team, and lets us reflect on how proud we are of the outstanding homes that we design and create time and time again.  These awards are a great reflection on the high level of quality design and professionalism being offered to Metricon customers,” said Phil.

Speaking about the award winning home design, Phil said, “The Merricks is a stunning double storey design, with a sprawling open plan kitchen, living and dining featuring an adjoining outdoor room, the Merricks is an entertainers dream.
