Metricon 2018: Australia's top home builder for the third year in a row


Metricon has been revealed as Australia’s number one residential home builder for the third year in a row with the release of the HIA COLORBOND® Steel Housing Top 100 Report.

The report, which ranks Australia’s top 100 home builders based on the number of new builds commenced each year, saw Metricon top the list with a total of 4,764 starts across Victoria, Queensland, NSW and South Australia.

“We are delighted to be ranked number one for the third consecutive year,” Metricon Director Peter Langfelder said. “It’s a testament to our national team, our passion for what we do, and the Australian families we do it for.”

Figures from the report, released last week, also showed 2017-18 was one of the strongest years on record with a whopping 222,000 new homes under construction, and Metricon was one of the biggest movers on the list, increasing its builds by an additional 397 commencements in the 2017/18 financial year. It was also the strongest year for detached house builders in the last 18 years. 

“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;” he said. “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 also took the opportunity to thank each and every one of Metricon’s loyal customers, without whom this continued success would not have been possible.

“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,” he said. “It’s what drives us to continually improve our delivery of superior design, great quality construction and customer care.”
