Metricon tops HIA's Housing 100 as Number One Australian Builder for third year in a row

Wednesday 26 September 2018: Metricon has been named Australia’s number one home builder for the third year in a row with the release of the HIA COLORBOND® Steel Housing Top 100 Report today at the 2018 HIA Construction Outlook Breakfast in Melbourne.

The HOUSING TOP 100 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 4,764 starts, across Victoria, Queensland, NSW and South Australia.
The Report states that building activity in 2017/18 will be recorded as one of the strongest years on record, with 222,000 new homes commenced, with the year being the strongest for detached house builders in 18 years.[1] Metricon was one of the biggest movers on the list, increasing its builds since 2017 with an additional 397 commencements in the 2017/18 financial year.
Peter Langfelder, Metricon Director, and an attendee at this morning’s event said “We are delighted to be ranked number one for the third consecutive year. It’s a testament to our national team, 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,” Peter said.
“We’re committed to continually developing new homes to suit evolving customer needs and budgets, and it’s this focus on design and innovation that saw us continue our growth last financial year. Across our brands, we really do have a home for every Australian family.
“Encouragingly, the HIA COLORBOND® Steel report highlights that there is still a strong building industry and demand for quality home builds Australia-wide.” Mr Langfelder concluded.
