Everyone at Master Builders Victoria (MBV) was shocked and saddened to learn of the death of Metricon Founder and CEO Mario Biasin today.

Since its establishment in 1976, Mario has grown the Metricon business into one of Victoria’s premier home builders with an outstanding reputation for quality and excellence.

Metricon has been a valued member of MBV for the past 29 years.

Mario was a good friend of MBV and an exceptionally strong advocate for our industry.

During the pandemic, Metricon was a lead supporter in MBV’s COVID-19 advocacy campaigns to ensure the Victorian building and construction industry remained safe and open for business, safeguarding hundreds of thousands of jobs.

Mario’s passing leaves an enormous void in our industry, and he will be greatly missed.

Our thoughts are with Mario’s wife Glenda, his four children, grandchildren, and extended family together with the whole Metricon team at this extremely sad time.
