Metricon Wins Australian Display Home of the Year

The Housing Industry Association has awarded Metricon with the Australian Display Home of the Year Award at the 2015 HIA-CSR Australian Housing Awards for the Chicago which is on display in South Australia.

Metricon received the prize at the prestigious Awards ceremony held at the Gold Coast Convention & Exhibition Centre on Friday night in front of hundreds of industry leaders.

The HIA-CSR Australian Housing Awards are the ultimate platform to showcase the talents of the nation's top builders, designers and building companies, with winners selected from state-based finalists with awards in 21 separate categories.

The Australian Display Home award, partnered by, recognises an individual house that is currently on display to the public.

The judges said of the winning home, “The Chicago is influenced by modern living. It delivers a striking sense of style, comfort and high quality craftsmanship. The timeless, classically-styled façade ensures a commanding street presence.

General Manager for South Australia, Richard Bryant said, "Metricon has a proud 39 year history of building and creating innovative, quality homes for a wide range of home buyers. Winning this HIA award is a huge achievement for Metricon. It lets us know we're truly building homes Australian families will love to live in.

"Building a home is one of the biggest decisions that families make in their lifetime and are such important investments, so we’re honored that so many families keep choosing Metricon as their home builder. We consider each and every home that we build to be just as important as the last.

“Winning this highly esteemed award is a credit to both the display, design and South Australian 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 of the high level of professionalism and design quality being offered to Metricon customers and showcase our continued excellence in building,” said Richard.

Speaking about the award winning home design, Richard said, "the Chicago is a stunning five bedroom, five bathroom design with open plan family, kitchen and dining area. It's really the perfect home for growing families. Offering numerous family living spaces and large retreat zones, the Chicago is designed to meet the needs of the modern household and it is wonderful that this innovative design was acknowledged with the honor of Australian Display Home of the Year".
