Argo Development Studio founded by Managing Director, David Campion.
David has lectured and tutored at the School of Architecture, DIT, Ireland and has over 20 years of industry experience in design and development, working across a number of sectors in the US, across Europe and in the Caribbean.
The delivery of a number of award-winning ‘design build’ projects inspired David to create his own Development Studio that focused on achieving greater efficiencies in the design and development process.
Argo provides efficient expertise, cost certainty and on time delivery to its clients. We seek to rediscover the synergies of the “Master Builder” and safeguards the project journey, from concept to completion through strong leadership serving as a client guardian of built asset delivery.
The strength and talent of the teams we assemble positions us at the forefront of design and development on a global scale.
We deliver architecture of its time with a considered appreciation for environmental, social, cultural and economic concerns. We believe excellence is timeless and the principles of form and space transcend the bonds of fashion and style.
Our process develops naturally from the pursuit of perfection through solutions and ideas. We pride ourselves in being at the forefront of design on a global scale and are passionate about transforming problem solving into an art.
At Argo, we believe that cross collaboration among our team members is an integral part of the design process. As a design collective, we are skilled at creating bespoke solutions which are functional, practical, imaginative and innovative.
CTE – Centre Of Technical Expertise
Argo’s CTE team specializes in the design development stage and offers technical input across all Argo Development Studio projects.
Our CTE’s service also extends to design practices, contractors or developers in need of additional technical support. Our experienced team members will work seamlessly alongside an existing team or provide a complete, managed solution on behalf of the client. They will provide logical, detailed solutions using construction technologies to form the link between design and delivery.
Building Information Modelling
Our certified BIM professionals implement 4D – Virtual Clash Detection with Program Sequencing and 5D – Cost Analysis including Quantity Take-off. We are also integrating 6D – Energy Performance Analysis and finally 7D – Facility and Operations Management into our project modeling.
Building Information Modelling (BIM) allows buildings to be designed, costed and constructed in a virtual world prior to a site start. Traditional conflicting information that leads to site changes and inefficiencies are resolved in this virtual world with BIM. This ensures an efficient delivery, on budget and to programme. Argo’s staff members are certified (BIM) professionals and are leading in industry best practices.
IBC and Building Control Regulations
At Argo Development Studio, we ensure projects achieve compliance with the latest relevant regularity requirements. Every element of the design is cross checked to ensure that it meets or betters the local or international building codes. Our team will co-ordinate with local building control authorities and fulfil the role of assigned certifier by preparing and submitting all required documentation and performing thorough on site inspections. By doing so we safeguard the client’s interests while providing an increased level of comfort to their customers.
