At Argent he will work with the partner team to provide strategic business direction on design, buildability, procurement and all aspects of construction delivery that embrace innovation, digital technology and procurement.
David Partridge, managing partner of Argent, said: “Bringing Mark in to head up our construction and delivery processes is a really important move for us.
“Argent’s development pipeline at King’s Cross, Paradise in Birmingham and at Tottenham Hale and Brent Cross South is an extensive and ambitious one.
“Mark’s considerable skill and experience will be vital in executing this programme effectively and efficiently, in what is inevitability going to be a challenging environment.”
