  • Robert Plumley
    Client

    "I trust them. The PF+A team are welcoming, they listen and then take you professionally through the design and planning processes. They make it happen."

  • Steve Gillman
    Client

    "We commissioned PF+A to design and remodel our home following a constructive consultation. PF+A have developed a framework of working where you are encouraged to consider every aspect prior to starting the build. It paid dividends taking the extra time ensuring a smooth and calm build on site, taking away the stresses. PF+A's way of working enhanced our knowledge and experience of building and the finished product has definitely fulfilled our dream."

  • George Watson
    Client

    "PF+A helped us inordinately when we moved to Guernsey. The staff were friendly, the service professional and the outcome fantastic. In fact, our confidence in them was such that we were able to go away for 3 months during the build and leave them to look after things...which is an ideal way to build in my opinion!"

  • Andy Hall
    Chairman, Garenne Group

    "Over the years we have worked on many successful projects together and it's always a pleasure to work with PF+A. They have a practical, solution focused way of working which suits us. Their buildings seem to enhance the lives of those who interact with them quite naturally and their projects are always an enjoyable experience for client, Architect and builder."

Ollie Muston MCIAT

E: ollie.muston@pfaarchitecture.com

T: 01481 712633

Having been educated and grown up in Guernsey and developing a passion for technical design work, information technology and an intrigue for building design and history during his GCSE years, Oliver decided to commence his career in 1999 as an Architectural Technologist with Lovell Ozanne one of the largest architectural practices in the Channel Islands,  During those first inspiring 9 years he gained his BTEC HNC qualification increasing his fundamental experience and developing his knowledge base by working on multi-million pound commercial and residential developments including, Mixed Use and Redevelopment Areas (MURA), offices, apartments and industrial units.  

Moving to the States of Guernsey’s Property Services Team in 2008, Oliver was able to learn invaluable working skills and practices, increasing his expanding skillset in tendering and contract administration, whilst having the opportunity to work on public buildings and the differing challenges brought about by these types of projects. These projects encompassed education premises, States buildings with high security requirements, projects at the airport and harbours and fully accessible health facilities.  Full Accessibility audits for the health facilities became a prominent project for Oliver as his career progressed and he carried out a number of audits and reports for substantial business within the Island.

Now with a total of 21 years’ experience within the industry, his expansive knowledge not only covers all areas of a very vast field, but includes all aspects of a project from inception right through to the final handover of a completed project; which, for Oliver is the most rewarding experience. 

Oliver’s exceptional wealth of knowledge has lead him to gain his chartership with the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists and was formally invited to become an Interview Assessor for the Institute in 2015, a position limited to only a small number and in which someone can only be invited by the Institute.  Oliver completed the necessary assessor training a few months later.  

Ever striving to continue growing and expanding his professional knowledge, Oliver is a driven member of PF+A and one of the top in his field. With his professional yet friendly approachable nature he is an individual able to facilitate and communicate to clients, contractors, sub-contractors and other third parties to ensure that a project is always the best it can be.  Internally an exceptional trainer to the less experienced members of the team with an ease of teaching methods to ensure an unseamingly level of continuity for their development.

In his spare time Oliver enjoys spending time with his young family of three daughters, experiencing travelling and cultural diversity and of course Guernsey’s beautiful outdoor environment.
