Managing Director, Brian Hood established Laurus Projects after having earned his stripes working for three of the largest property and construction companies in Australia – Multiplex, Lendlease and Hutchinson Builders.
It is his wealth of experience, expertise and exceptional knowledge of all facets of construction and development that ties Laurus’ service offering together.

Over the years, Brian has established strong working relationships with designers and building partners and has a deep understanding of the political climate surrounding the construction and development industry, which those who partner with Laurus get the security of.
