Metricon’s Orlando 28 Wins at the Master Builders Regional Building Awards

The Master Builders Association awarded Metricon’s Orlando 28 on display in Huntly in Bendigo, with the title of best display home between $200,000- $300,000, at their recent annual celebration of Regional North West building excellence.

The Master Builders Association’s judging panel were impressed with the spacious four bedroom, two bathroom, Freedom by Metricon home, with a superb master suite positioned to the front of the home and a substantial and exciting integrated living hub to the rear, the fact that the entire home is packed with thoughtful lifestyle touches, and has been designed for practical liveability.

Tania Tonks Metricon’s Regional Manager - Regional North said that, “the Orlando 28 is a perfect choice for customers seeking a mid-size family home that makes best use of livable space on a thinner block. With plenty of options for entertaining family and friends with a formal sitting room towards the front of the home or the large integrated kitchen dining and living hub that opens to the outdoor entertaining room which is the full width of the living hub.

“The judges commented that everyone in the family was well catered for in this design with the smart zoning of the floorplan. Insightful design aspects such as the positioning of the laundry and the slight extension of the kitchen past the secondary bedrooms into the front area of the home, effectively strengthens the sense of calm to the adult areas and ensures genuine zoned living.

 “At Metricon, we have a proud 38 year history of creating innovative, quality homes for a wide range of home buyers. We are thrilled that the Orlando was recognised at the MBA awards and are honored that so many families are choosing Metricon to build the most important asset of their lives.

“This is not something that we ever take lightly and see each home as a great responsibility. Every purchaser of a Metricon home places enormous trust in our organisation. It is a trust that guides our thoughts and actions daily. Our programs to constantly improve our delivery of superior design, great quality construction and customer care, are all based on the importance of this trust.

“To receive this recognition for our workmanship, design, innovation and ongoing dedication to the highest standards on and off the worksite, is a thrill and a credit to the team Regional North team. Entering the MBA awards has allowed us to showcase what we do and how proud we are of our team and the outstanding homes we have built, “said Tania.
