Argus Development Corporation was incorporated on September 1, 1988 by a group of experienced and enterprising, relatively young men with 30 years or more of professional practice as middle managers in major construction companies. Through the years they nurtured and trained a competent, effective and loyal work force.
As a start Argus was busy with foreign-funded DECS school building programs all over Luzon and Metro Manila. Then we were heavily engaged in the sudden TELECOM growth of SMART, Globe, Ericsson, Huawei, Bayantel and Motorola from Pagud-pud, throughout the Visayas up to Zamboanga City. We built cellsites, switching and office centers and towers, most often on top of Greenfield mountains or on top of city buildings.
Meanwhile we also constructed five stories school institutions for Montessori and Lyceum International Maritime Academy of the Laurel clan. Meantime industrial and commercial contracts in the Economic Free Zones in Rosario Cavite and Cavite FCIE provided Argus growth opportunities together with Japanese and other foreign clients. We also built and still have current contracts with Metrobank, Banco De Oro & China Bank constructing their various branches in Metro Manila and country-wide Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao Sites.
Equally challenging are various residential buildings for BELLE Corporation, SM Development Corporation, and Concepts & Systems Development Corporation. A chapel for BELLE Corporation in Tagaytay Midlands was most satisfying.
We can say that we have hurdled the spectrum of challenges offered by industrial, commercial, educational, residential and even artwork contracts.
For the past twenty nine years, we are proud to say that we have never defaulted any single project, large or small. We have endeavored to live up to our mission vision:
“Continuous striving for client satisfaction beyond the legal dictates of the contract while maintaining an effective and happy work force.”
