Mas­ter Builders Queens­land launched its an­nual Hous­ing and Con­struc­tion Awards for 2018 ear­lier this year, with the win­ners for the Gold Coast re­gion an­nounced at their re­cent awards even­ing.

Met­ri­con Homes was awarded Best Dis­play Home in the com­pet­i­tive over $551,000 cat­e­gory by Mas­ter Builders Queens­land, for their dis­play home at The Sur­rounds in He­lensvale.

This was the Metro 31’s sec­ond award win for 2018 af­ter win­ning best dou­ble storey dis­play home in the Stock­land Vibe Awards in June.

The De­signer by Met­ri­con Metro 31 will now progress to the state level round of judg­ing, with win­ners an­nounced at the Mas­ter Builders State Hous­ing and Con­struc­tion Awards in Oc­to­ber.

Met­ri­con Queens­land gen­eral man­ager Peter Ryan said the team were proud of their suc­cess­ful his­tory.

“At Met­ri­con, we have a proud 40-year his­tory of cre­at­ing homes for Aus­tralian fam­i­lies,” he said.

“To re­ceive this recog­ni­tion for our work­man­ship, de­sign, and in­no­va­tion is a thrill and a credit to our Queens­land team.

“En­ter­ing the Mas­ter Builders Hous­ing and Con­struc­tion Awards has al­lowed us to show­case what we do and how proud we are of our team.”

Mr Ryan said the sec­ond award win for this de­sign sub­stan­ti­ated the clever use of space in the home.

“The in­tel­li­gent floor­plan of the Metro 31 pro­vides fam­i­lies with an abun­dance of space, but de­liv­ers it in a com­pact 31 square floor­plan suit­able for nar­row blocks just 10.5m wide,” he said.

“Since Met­ri­con re­leased the de­sign to the mar­ket, it has proven very pop­u­lar with those want­ing to knock down and re­build on nar­row in­ner city blocks, and also with those build­ing in new es­tates where the land size is gen­er­ally smaller.”

The house in­cludes four bed­rooms, study nook, in­te­grated liv­ing hub, sec­ondary leisure room up­stairs, and an out­door en­ter­tain­ing room, and it is on dis­play at The Sur­rounds in He­lensvale, show­cased in the Cube fa­cade and styled with a Scan­di­na­vian in­te­rior.
