Metricon Tops HIA's Housing 100 Australian Builders

Metricon has been named Australia’s number one home builder with the release of the HIA’s HOUSING 100 today.

The report, which ranks Australia’s top 100 residential builders based on the number of home builds commenced each year, saw Metricon top the list with a total of 4,365 starts, across Victoria, Queensland, NSW and South Australia.

With total builds commenced in Australia at a record high of 69,161, Metricon was one of the biggest movers on the list, moving up four spots from 2014/15 with an additional 994 commencements.

According to Ross Palazzesi, Metricon’s Managing Director, the ranking represents a year of milestones for Metricon.
“As we approach our 40th year of trade, we are celebrating some wonderful achievements including housing more than 100 Australian families each week,” Ross said.

“We are thrilled to be ranked number one, as it’s a testament to our national team and our passion for what we do and the Australian families we do it for.”

“Our customers have and always will be our top priority, and it is a privilege that Australian home buyers continue to trust us with the most important purchase of their lives. It’s what drives us to continually improve our delivery of superior design, great quality construction and customer care,” he said.

“We’re committed to continually developing new homes to suit the evolving customer needs and budgets, and it’s this focus on design and innovation that has seen us release 30 new designs this year to date, and take home more than 20 national awards.”

“Across our brands, from Freedom by Metricon to Signature by Metricon, we really do have a home for every Australian family.”
