Metricon’s value designs recognised at the Master Builders regional awards

Earlier this month, the Master Builders Association of Victoria presented Metricon’s Delta display home in Strathfieldsaye with a prestigious win at the Regional North West awards.

Held annually, the awards showcase exceptional craftsmanship and standards of excellence in the residential and construction sectors of the building industry throughout Victoria.

The Delta 29MR with a peak façade, took out the hotly contested Best Volume Display Home $350,000-$500,000’ category.

Metricon’s Langdon display home in Moama was also acknowledged in the Regional North West awards, being judged the Best Volume Display Home in the $250,000-$350,000’ section.

“The Delta and the Langdon have very appealing and smart floorplans, with four bedrooms, two bathrooms and multiple living spaces, offering a lot of accommodation at affordable price points,” said Tania Tonks, Metricon Homes’ manager for regional north.

“The Delta is one of our most successful designs, this is the fourth award the design has received in regional Victoria alone.

“It’s the perfect family design with its master suite conveniently zoned to the back of the home, away from the other three bedrooms, offering privacy and room to grow for families. The outdoor room in the Delta flows seamlessly from the open plan kitchen and living area, creating perfect entertaining spaces.

Ms Tonks said Metricon has proud 45-year history of creating homes for Australian families to love where they live.

“To receive this continued recognition for our workmanship, design and ongoing dedication to the highest standards on and off the worksite, is a credit to our Regional North team,” she said.

The Delta is perfect for entertaining.

“We are always proud of our local team and the outstanding homes we build in the area, but especially in 2021, when we have an unprecedented volume of building starts.”

Growth in the local new build market has been strong recently, with schemes like HomeBuilder and lower interest rates driving a surge in demand.

“In areas such as Bendigo we are experiencing record activity as savvy buyers seize the opportunity to secure a new home away from the city, with evidence that location is something customers are now looking at differently,” Ms Tonks said.

“With many organisations embracing working from home beyond COVID-19 restrictions, a home in our regional community is now being viewed more favourably, particularly if you are only commuting a few days per week.

“The demographic shift in population towards regional locations and low interest rates will continue to drive demand for new homes in the Bendigo region and surrounding areas for months to come and what many are surprised to learn is that Metricon’s regional teams are comprised of local staff, site managers, service and warranty and trades, which means they too are part of the community where so many people are deciding to build beautiful new homes.”
