How Metricon became Australia's most awarded builder


When Mario Biasin and George Kline founded Metricon in 1976, all they wanted to do was build houses people would love to live in. More than 40 years on, not much has changed. Whether we’re building 250 houses a year or 5000, our goal is still, simply, to build homes people are proud to call their own.

“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," Metricon director Peter Lanfelder says. "It’s what drives us to continually improve our delivery of superior design, great quality construction and customer care."

We also understand that to love your home, you have to trust that it has been built to perfection. That’s why we have decided to upgrade our structural guarantee from 25 years to life*, because we are committed to not only creating designs you’ll fall for, but also giving you peace of mind they have been built to last a lifetime. Because being the best building company in Australia, ever, isn’t about how many homes we build – it’s about helping you, our customers, love where you live.

You are our inspiration

Our homes are designed to celebrate you.

This is the reason we continually strive to create innovative, award-winning designs that help you make the most of not only your home, but the life you live in it. Though our design philosophy has evolved over the years, one thing that has never changed is our commitment to excellence. Our mission is to build stunning homes of the highest quality; homes you can be proud to call yours.

A name you can trust

Over the last two years, we have been recognised by Australia’s peak building bodies for our home-building excellence, receiving myriad awards for our stunning workmanship across the country. That our business has been built on the knowledge and expertise of local people and local trades, who design, sell and build homes specifically with the wants and needs of Australians in mind, is why the judges continually award our homes ahead of the competition.

Building on success

We are proud to have been recognised by the Housing Industry Association (HIA) as Australia’s number one home builder for the third year in a row. The HIA Colourbond Steel™ Housing Top 100 report, which ranks Australia’s top 100 residential builders based on the number of home builds commenced each year, is one of the industry’s top accolades and highlights how important you, our customers, are to our continued success. "This award is a testament to our national team, our passion for what we do and, of course, you; the Australian families for whom we do it," says Metricon director Peter Langfelder. "Thank you for inspiring us to continue striving for excellence."
