Cameron Architecture focuses on the inside as much as the outside when designing buildings. For us architecture is about the whole user experience, the journey through the building, the use of the internal and external spaces and how the design makes you feel.
We want our designs to not only meet our client's aspirations, but to go beyond what any client originally imagined.
It does not matter if you are an experienced developer or a homeowner who wants to undertake building work for the first time, as we tailor all our services to each individual client. We will choose an architectural design package which meets your requirements and guide you through the process step-by-step.
We aim to make the building process easy, by keeping in close contact with our clients throughout each stage so they always know what is going on and what will be coming next. This is essential in making this a stress free process and to help keep the client happy.
Sustainability does not mean expensive add-ons, it is about the whole life-cycle of the building and how you use energy. A well designed sustainable home will always save you money on energy bills.
We have the responsibility as architects to make our buildings as sustainable as possible by understanding how our homes work, the energy used to run them and the materials used to build them. Sustainability and energy efficiency are important considerations for every design at Cameron Architecture.
For those who are unfamiliar with the building process, these are the basic stages of design and construction. Don´t worry if you don´t understand everything as we will guide you through the process and explain every stage in detail with you.
Stage 0 - Consultation, development of a project brief, appointment and surveys
Stage 1 - Based on the project brief we will design various proposed options for the new building/s or extensions.
Stage 2 - Pre-Planning / Outline / Planning application (if required) submission to Local Council to gain permission to carry out the works.
Stage 3 - Building Control submission to Local Council / Approved Building Inspector to get prior approval that the construction will meet UK building regulations.
Stage 4 - Tender submission to Contractor/s to give you a cost price for carrying out the works.
Stage 5 - Construction stage where we may / may not act as Contract Administrators for the project.
Stage 6 - Project Completion
