Metricon, JG King shine at MBAV regional awards
JG King and Metricon have emerged as the big winners at the various Master Builders of Victoria regional awards. JG King Homes won the Best Volume Builder Display Home under $250,000 for its H6 project at Jackass Flat. Metricon took home the $250,000-$350,000 honours for its Delta 28BP at Strathfieldsaye, and Dennis Family Homes saluted in the $350,000-$500,000 category for its Hartley 333 Tempo at Strathfieldsaye. Dennis Family Homes Bendigo area manager Sasha Bursac said the award was fitting recognition for the design and construction team. “My team and I have always felt that our Hartley 333 display was a standout for its high-quality interior fittings and functional, family-friendly design and this award certainly confirms this. Certainly, our visitors have always been very positive in their feedback about the home,” Bursac said.
Metricon did the double at the South West awards. The Lawson 22Mk2 at Armstrong Creek took out the under $250,000 category and $350,000-$500,000 gong with its Botanica 32 at Fyansford. JG King replicated the feat when its Barossa 255 at Fyansford collected the Display Home $250,000-$350,000, and its Wendouree project took home the Best Custom Home in the $600,000-$800,000 category.
The biggest winner from the South West awards was Signature Homes Geelong. Its South Geelong project won the Best Custom Home $400,000-$500,000, and its Newtown project won the Best Custom Home $800,000-$1million. Other winners included: Hotondo Homes Ballarat (Kirkby 267, Alfredton); Malishev Constructions (Curlewis); Trevor Homes (Portarlington and Newtown); and Homes with Integrity (Highton). At the South East awards, JG King triumphed in the Best Display Home under $250,000 with its H6 at Traralgon receiving the nod from judges. Simonds Homes earned the plaudits in the 250,000-$350,000 price range with its Hudson 2212 at Bairnsdale, and Metricon’s Botanica 36 at Traralgon won the gong in the $350,000-$500,000 category.
