Why knockdown rebuild?

KnockDown Rebuild (KDRB) gives you all the advantages of a brand new contemporary home, just the way you want it, right where you want it. It’s much easier and more affordable than many people think. Whether you replace the home you’re living in now, or you simply buy an old home to demolish and build the home of your dreams, you end up with the joy of living in a totally new home, with no compromises.



The benefits of building new over renovating

Renovating can result in unforeseen cost blowouts and uncover previously hidden or undiscovered faults, whereas Knockdown Rebuild delivers a home that matches your desired lifestyle perfectly. A home with every luxury you could ask for, customised to suit your lifestyle, and complete in every detail.
We have over 100 home designs to suit almost every lifestyle requirement. No need to compromise on layout, interior finishes or fixtures. You get the perfect new home to fit your lifestyle.

What our customers say

"We wanted our new home to be perfect, exactly what we wanted, so Knockdown Rebuild was the best option for us. We found Metricon very helpful. Some builders take days to answer questions, even in the initial enquiry stage, but the Metricon salesperson was always quick to respond, and very easy to talk to."

- Thomas & Cecilia, who built a Franklin with a Plantation facade in Ringwood North

Our six step Knockdown Rebuild process

Our experienced and dedicated sales advisors will be an invaluable resource to you and will help you through your six step KnockDown Rebuild process so that it proceeds as smoothly as possible.

1. Review the land where you will build your all-new home

First thing’s first. We check your title boundaries, covenants, zoning, planning overlays, local council guidelines and residential building codes to assess the physical practicalities of your new home site.

2. Choose your dream home, just the way you want it

Our sales consultants will show you our homes and how they fit on your block so you choose a home that is perfectly suited to your lifestyle.

3. Preliminary works and initial documentation

We analyse any site limitations. If there’s any unforeseen problem you can pause at this point and decide whether to proceed. Then we draw up your preliminary contract with the information that has been gathered so far.

4. Adding those all-important final touches

Now the fun really starts! At Studio M your home décor consultant will guide you as you choose from an enormous range of interior and exterior finishes, floor coverings, tiles, bricks, doors, taps, appliances, light fittings and every other home accessory to create the perfect look for your home.

5. The last lot of paperwork

You can now sign the final contract and the next step in the construction process can get underway. You can sit back and relax while we apply for your building permit to commence construction.

6. The build itself

Once the permit is received, you arrange demolition of the old house (we can offer you advice on good firms to talk to) and then we move onto the site and start building.

At each key stage, quality control inspections ensure that all is going well, and we will schedule times for you to visit your home under construction.

Your private My Metricon online portal lets you keep up to date with how things are going and your site supervisor or support person will also call you every week to let you know where we’re up to. 

All leading up to that wonderful day when we hand over the keys and show you through your beautiful new home!
