Oliver Henshall MCIAT, Chartered Architectural Technologist

Oliver is the driving force for the development and growth of his peers, whilst paving the way for others to follow, by climbing the hierarchy within Powell Dobson to become a Technical Associate, before the age of 30.

Oliver's character fits into a variety of moulds. On one hand, he is fiercely ambitious, proved by his fast progression within Powell Dobson. Hard work, dedication and an ability to self-assess his most recent experiences and interactions mean he is able to grow and develop to adapt to new situations and challenges. A good understanding of empathy and the ability to read a room also provide Oliver with the fundamental core competencies critical to building successful relationships that so often are missing in young professionals today.

The best way to demonstrate Oliver's excellence in fulfilling the role as a Chartered Architectural Technologist and Technical Associate for Powell Dobson, is the fact that clients continue to return and request that Oliver is to act as their lead consultant for the delivery of their projects. By creating an inclusive, relaxed but ultimately engaging environment for a design team to work in, he gets the best out of people, time and time again.
