PF+A Welcomes Hamish Hargreaves

PF+A Welcomes Hamish Hargreaves

PF+A are proud to announce the newest member of our team, Hamish Hargreaves, to head up the growing Jersey studio. Having worked both in Australia and the Middle East, his vast portfolio will bring an international outlook and world of knowledge to the company and we are eager to see what is to come.

Although born in Australia- Hamish’s Family are Jersey Islanders, having always maintained their connection with the Island. When Hamish was a child, his parents built their family home in remote Western Australia using adobe and rammed earth. After witnessing first-hand the joy of how a building can be created simply from the earth that we walk on, his architectural passion began. That same enthusiasm has carried him through an architectural career spanning 20 years, across the globe.

For the first few years of his career, Hamish worked across many renowned firms in Perth before becoming responsible for COX Architecture’s Middle East Operations. During his time there, he secured several big projects for the company in competition against the top global firms. His most recent project, one of three landmark pavilions for the 2020 World Expo, sits comfortably alongside pavilions being delivered by Fosters, Grimshaws and Calatrava.

PF+A’s director John Hibbs commented: "PF+A believe in enhancing people's lives, not just our clients' but also our employees and the wider community. Hamish has this ethos built-in. He's successful, erudite and kind and can articulate PF+A's vision clearly and passionately. We're thrilled he's decided to join our family."

Hamish’s style is indisputable, and really quite beautiful, something that will grace Jersey’s stunning landscape. The award-winning Albany Entertainment Centre Hamish worked on in Australia exemplifies his highflying character he puts forth in his designs and personality. Situated in a bay where the mountain meets the shore, the form of the Albany Entertainment Centre is jagged in its response to the natural surroundings and it’s sculptural quality has made it iconic within the community. Hamish has also been an integral part of the design and construction of a very important Museum, which, when completed next year is set to become the largest Museum in the Middle East- surpassing in size and scale of Jean Nouvel’s recently completed Louvre Abu Dhabi.

Despite the busy person he was whilst working in the Middle East, Hamish still made time to visit his beloved family home in St Ouens for summers. This time Hamish is back to the island for good, spending his time renovating the family home when he isn’t creating amazing architecture with PF+A – and we couldn’t be more excited.

Ollie Muston MCIAT


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.
