Studio

ARGO Development Studio was founded by its Managing Director, David Campion. David was an Associate Director of one of Ireland’s most successful firms of Architects – MOLA and delivered several award-winning projects in over 12 years with the firm. David has lectured and tutored at the School of Architecture, DIT, Ireland and was a member of a task group assembled by the Royal Institute of Architects Ireland to establish education standards for professional practice.

ARGO is an international, award-winning architectural practice specialising in a design and construction process called Building Information Modelling (BIM). This process allows ARGO to design, cost and construct more intelligent and resilient buildings in a 3D virtual environment achieving savings of up to 20% over conventional 2D delivery.

We offer a seventeen (17) hour workday as standard by availing of a seven (7) hour time zone overlap by splitting our teams between offices in Barbados, Dominica, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Jamaica and Europe, and several project offices throughout the Caribbean.

ARGO provides efficient expertise, cost certainty, on-time delivery and value for money to its clients. ARGO safeguards the project journey from concept to completion through strong leadership. The strength and talent of the teams ARGO assembles positions it at the forefront of design and development on a global scale.

We promote a dynamic, professional, collaborative studio environment where vigorous debate within teams is encouraged and is followed swiftly by decisions, delivered through clear leadership structures.

Mission

To efficiently plan, design, cost and construct intelligent buildings in a virtual environment, making them increasingly resilient to the effects of natural disasters, achieving savings of up to 20% over the conventional 2D delivery and transforming the co-ordination between the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry through Building Information Modelling (BIM). 

Vision

To become a globally recognised architectural practice specialising in Building Information Modelling (BIM) to create intelligent and resilient buildings in a digitally-enabled environment utilising artificial intelligence to transform the design and construction process.

Expertise

The scope of our expertise is extensive, both in project type and scale, we deliver designs that perform and excite, in some of the most exotic and intoxicating locales in the world. ARGO rediscovers the synergies of the Master Builder to realise excellence in delivery through meticulous attention to detail.

Ethos

Our pursuit of excellence in design and development is informed by a clear understanding of client needs and aspirations.

Corporate and Social Responsibility

Our teams work with local industry, creating a strong bond between our projects and community. We work closely with governments to ensure that  we preserve the natural beauty of the environments we develop in. We engage with the community through outreach programs and sponsorship to charities, schools and sports clubs. We connect our organization to the wider industry worldwide through building strong connections both inside and outside the organization.

Teams and Studio Environment

The diversity, efficiency and passion of our talented teams are some of our competitive advantages. Our teams consist of some of the most forward-thinking people in the design and development industry. They come from different geographical backgrounds, disciplines, cultures and generations. They share differences in convictions, cultural values, operating norms and experiences. 

This promotes a melting pot of new ideas and encourages innovation. This also brings passion and constructive conflict which leads us to richer, more valuable, innovative results. We have a strong belief in collaborative effort within our studio teams, consultants, specialists and clients.
