“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.”
