Laurie Truce, Indigo Group Founder, Sets the Bar

Anyone who has followed the growth of property development in Australia has probably heard of the Indigo Group. This group was responsible for the revival of the gorgeous beach front property at Burleigh Heads.

They transformed Dicky Beach’s dilapidated Camp Cal into a magnificent community of beach houses.

And their list of accomplishments in the field of property development goes on and on, including spectacular projects in residential, hotel refurbishment, hotel development, residential retail, planned community, residential land, commercial, industrial, office, and office refurbishment. Their many triumphs have also led to various impressive awards, including the 2008 International Property Award for Best Architecture.

According to Laurie Truce, Indigo Group Founder and Chairman, the key to the success of the Indigo Group is passion: for the project, and for the welfare of each client. Mitch Nielsen, Managing Director, concurs. This dynamic team has developed a widespread reputation for tackling even the most ambitious projects with ultimate confidence and expertise, transforming landscapes and neighborhoods, and adding value to communities.

Laurie Truce and Mitch Nielsen have been identified as excellent examples of consummate professionalism, combining technical expertise with personal involvement in the local community. They both hold the highest of credentials in their fields, including architecture and engineering, and their degree of professional experience is extraordinary. These two men have transformed the Indigo Group into one of Queensland’s top 20 privately-owned companies, with a staff of over 300 and approximately $3 Billion in projects.

However, many people are just as impressed with the commercial successes of Laurie Truce and the Indigo Group as they are with their community service. The Indigo Foundation provides over $100,000 to local and regional non-profit organizations each year, and Laurie and Mitch are both directly involved in various artistic, community-based programs.

Although the education, certifications, and direct professional experience of Truce, Nielsen, and their staff are quite impressive, they have recently been receiving even greater accolades for the way they demonstrate their commitment to the betterment of Australia’s landscapes and neighbourhoods.
