Architectural Clocks for international clients

Bespoke installations for unique environments.

At Dent we are adept at designing and constructing installations to suit any environment, from traditional and heritage pieces that sit within classic architectural settings to modern installations regarded as kinetic art that are sympathetic to their environment. As ever, our primary concern is to meet the needs and aspirations of our clients.

Dent was commissioned to produce the platform clock for St Pancras International Station as part of its £800 million restoration. It was installed in November 2007 and unveiled by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh.

Big Ben is an iconic element of the London skyline and DENT is always striving to create similarly evocative installations throughout the world. DENT is committed to providing iconic installations to developing democracies, for which an improved understanding of the concept of time will be a pillar to their commercial aspirations in the future.

At Dent, we've been designing, building and installing architectural clocks for nearly two hundred years. Every one of our clocks is a striking focal point that complements the setting in which it is installed.

We pride ourselves on delivering only the very best installations in the world, so only the most skilled craftsmen make Dent clocks. All are designed and built in England before being installed in noteworthy locations around the globe.

Examples of Dent's magnificent architectural clocks can be seen at Balmoral Castle, St Pancras International Railway Station, the Bombay Market and Moscow Post Office, but perhaps the clock that has most impressed internationally is the Great Clock at the Houses of Parliament, familiarly known as Big Ben.

We are currently engaged in several contemporary projects in London, Boston, Abu Dhabi, Nigeria, Columbia, Argentina and Saudi Arabia. We cannot name the projects before they are unveiled, but they are, without exception, some of the most significant modern architectural projects in the world.

Dent works very closely with stakeholders, architects, designers and the project team to deliver a truly incredible and lasting feature. Please contact us to discuss your opportunity privately and in confidence.
