Metricon appointed a Sustainability Victoria Project Partner for Zero Net Carbon Homes

Metricon has been appointed a program partner in the Victorian State Government’s pilot program Zero Net Carbon Homes to develop and market carbon-neutral homes in Victoria.

Sustainability Victoria CEO, Stan Krpan said: “The volume housing market presents one of the biggest, most readily available and untapped opportunities for emission reductions, cost savings, improved health and wellbeing, as well as productivity in the residential sector.”

Working with Sustainability Victoria and land developers, Metricon will design and construct Zero Net Carbon (ZNC) display homes in one or more of Melbourne’s four growth corridor areas. (West, North, South East and Sunbury / Diggers Rest), the Geelong region and Mitchell Shire.

“Metricon is excited to be a part of this innovative Zero Net Carbon Homes pilot,” said Peter Langfelder, Director and Victorian Housing General Manager at Metricon Homes.

“Metricon is mindful of the environmental and social impacts of the building industry and the role we can play in affecting change. 

“We look forward to building energy efficient homes that contribute to long-term cost savings and improved health and wellbeing for Victorian home occupants.  

“The effects of this program will be wide-reaching as more new home buyers discover the benefits of energy efficient housing. We anticipate scaling our work in this area based on program learnings.” Mr Langfelder concluded.

Metricon is aiming to have its first ZNC display home ready by mid-2019 with sales for the home available soon after.
