About Neometro

With an unrivaled history of delivering architectural projects, Neometro is one of Australia’s most progressive residential development firms. The company’s portfolio of residential and mixed-use buildings all demonstrate a singular approach to contemporary residential architecture which is reflected in the numerous design and architecture awards that the group has won. Neometro takes a hands on approach to all aspects of the development process – with project management, sales and construction being undertaken in-house. The directors and the executive team bring unique and diverse skills to each project. Neometro has a proud history with its involvement in flourishing social initiatives that allow the company to engage with the community.

Neometro has long held the belief in business as a force for good and have committed countless hours and manpower to providing positive opportunities to strengthen the communities we work in, as well as support and nurture a strong workforce thus we instantly recognised that values aligned with B Corps.

Letting our sites yet to be developed sit dormant has never quite sat right with us. We like to hand them over to the community for their benefit wherever possible – it’s the right thing to do. This positive interaction with the wider community and our social awareness is enhanced by our B Corp association.

The Change We Seek®

Socially responsible and ethical property development might seem like an oxymoron to some critics, but our B Corp status demonstrates it can be done – and should be done. We strive to spread the positive message that developers and businesses in general can and should be socially responsible and ethical so that all of society can benefit from our developments and have input in the direction and growth of our business.

What makes us a better company?
