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.

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

Since 2001, he has worked primarily on the King’s Cross redevelopment – in particular on land assembly, business planning, finance, infrastructure and environmental sustainability. He is responsible for integrating these aspects into the construction and delivery of the scheme.
Before joining Argent, André was a structural engineer at Arup, working on Hong Kong and Zurich airports and the Osaka Maritime Museum. He also worked in the Caribbean delivering a new port facility in Montserrat.
