townhome builders brisbane

Groove Properties has been in operation for over 16 years, but founder Nick Madden’s building journey started long before that. As a third-generation Brisbane builder, Nick began learning from a young age and followed his family into the world of building and construction. Establishing Groove Properties in the mid-2000s, Nick has built a reputation for exceptional personalised service and an eye for detail while creating beautiful projects.

Groove Properties is more than just a building company. We work with property developers to provide an end-to-end service for new townhouse developments, lifestyle villages, apartments, childcare and civil projects. Groove Properties also have their own developments, so understands the work that goes in to make projects successful.

Our team is highly skilled in all types of styles and designs of residential construction and has worked on multiple commercial and civil projects over the years. It’s about completely customising our services to meet our clients’ needs, including project consultant management, civil construction, build construction and sales. We are a one stop shop for property development.

It’s not just about building houses. What inspires me is creating beautiful, modern structures that our clients proudly call home.
