Argent

People who make places for people

Argent has a reputation for delivering some of the best mixed-use developments in the UK. We are respected for our approach to business, which is always based on openness and integrity.

That reputation is down to our people.

We are proud and privileged to have such a committed, creative and talented team: people from different backgrounds and walks of life – with skills that range across architecture, engineering, finance, marketing, construction, planning and law.

We enjoy what we do and we are endlessly passionate about it.

Argent is over 144 strong, and growing. Each time you refresh this page, you’ll see more faces from the team.

The transformation at King's Cross has proved a regeneration masterclass.
