Metis Homes wins prestigious WhatHouse? award for best small housebuilder in UK
Winchester based, Metis homes is delighted to announce that it has won Silver at the WhatHouse? Awards 2016, which were
held today at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London. The award was presented to Managing Director Adam O’Brien in front of
over 1,700 industry professionals, the largest ever audience for the awards.
Now in their 35th year the WhatHouse? Awards are widely recognised as the most prestigious in the housebuilding category
and are referred to as the Oscars of the housebuilding industry.
Metis Homes, whose strapline ‘Modern Homes. Traditional Values’ struck a chord with the judging panel, beat strong
competition in a fiercely contested category to win at the first ever time of asking.
Metis, which is backed by parent Company RO Group, has continued to deliver beautifully designed and finished homes with
diverse architecture and stunning interiors across the price spectrum in its target regions of Surrey, Sussex, Hampshire,
Wiltshire and Dorset. The business has now received a spectacular endorsement as an experienced and respected new
homes builder, providing high quality developments with meaningful community support and engagement.
Adam O’Brien, Managing Director of Metis Homes commented:
This is the first time that Metis has entered the WhatHouse? Awards and we are very proud that a judging panel
of industry experts and peers has recognised the substantial progress we have made as a business in a
relatively short period of time. It is a huge endorsement of the values that are important to our business.
In our awards submission we tried to give the judges an insight into those values, which include: quality of
product; exceptional customer care; innovative marketing; strong community relations and CSR, collectively
contributing to an impressive financial performance.
This award is testament to the quality of homes we produce and is a ringing endorsement of the professionalism of the entire Metis team and the wider network of partners, suppliers and contractors with
whom we work. I would like to thank them all for their continued support and contribution to our success.
