The building company will meet with creditors and the Victorian government following the sudden death of its founder and CEO Mario Biasin.
Metricon employs 2500 workers and has 4000 homes under construction.
Some of the projects have been finished, while others are under construction or waiting to start.

“Metricon is a strong, viable business without any solvency problem,” Langfelder said.
He said it was dealing with its regular business issues more sensitively because of the sudden death of 71-year-old Blasin on Monday.
