Cameron Contracting Ltd. is a fully family owned and operated construction company with over 30 years of industry experience. Earlier this year, the firm was recognised as one of BUILD’s ‘Ones to Watch in Canada’ in the annual Design and Build Awards program. We spoke with Cameron Contracting’s Controller, Kristy Cameron, to find out more.
“our mission is to be the lead provider of exceptional services in the Comox Valley by providing the highest quality products, expert project management and excellent customer service.” – Kristy Cameron
To put it simply, Cameron Contracting is in the market of creating dream homes, whether that be a custom-built single-family home or a multi-unit development. Naturally, with a dream home on the line, Cameron Contracting makes sure to approach each project with a level of dedication and a commitment to quality that has quickly earned them an exceptional reputation in their region and industry. More than that, as a true family business in every sense of the word, they understand the importance of creating a home that exceeds expectations across the board.
As Kristy explains, the foundations for Cameron Contracting’s success finds its roots in a rather simple idea: treating their clients as individuals, with needs and visions. “At Cameron Contracting we pride ourselves on our professional service, high quality products, and expert project management. We offer personalized advice and suggestions every step of the way, making the home building and design experience both meaningful and authentic.”
“What makes our firm successful is that we put our hearts into every single build. We treat every home as if it were our own and make suggestions and offer advice based on that. Our customers are a part of our family and we enjoy helping them to build their dream home. We cherish all of our relationships with our customers, employees and sub-contractors,” Kristy adds, before taking a moment to talk about the company’s clientele.
Naturally, one of the benefits of working in this industry is that the client base covers a large market segment. No two clients are the same, and each has a very different idea about what a ‘dream home’ is. This has resulted in a varied portfolio of work for Cameron Contracting, as well as allowing them to develop a versatile management system to overcome any challenges or complexities a project may bring. “One of the things we love most about our job is that we get to serve a variety of clients at different stages of their lives. Whether we are working with new homebuyers who are just starting out in the market, or retirees who are looking to build their dream home, we can support any home building needs.
“We have a wonderful show suite set up by our office that is open for viewing so people can see what our quality of finishes and products are. We love to meet new people and show them what we do.”
“Our employees and sub-contractors play an integral part in our business’ success. Without them, we could not do what we do. They are all amazing!”
It’s no surprise that the future of Cameron Contracting looks very promising indeed as they move towards the completion of a high-end condo building. Kristy reveals more in her closing comments: “We have a large condo building going up in the downtown core of Comox: 1700 Balmoral. This will be an amazing residential building boasting ocean, mountain and golf course views. We are very excited for the project to progress over 2019 and 2020. Spoiler alert – also keep an eye out for further developments we are doing in the Comox Valley area.”
“We recommend signing up for our monthly newsletter by visiting our website or following us on Facebook to stay up-to-date with our newest developments.”
“Working with the Cameron’s was a very positive experience for us. From designing our home to adding the finishing touches, we always felt like we were a priority. It truly feels like a family run business and we now feel a part of that family. We are so in love with our new home!” – Jeff & Michelle
“We moved into our new home one week ago and are really enjoying it! Building a new home is a daunting undertaking, but the Cameron staff made the whole process stress-free. With Kristy’s help, selecting the finishing, such as flooring, lighting and fixtures, was an enjoyable experience. She was always ready to answer questions in a timely and very pleasant way. Cory was an awesome project manager. He responded quickly to all of our concerns and was consistently a pleasure to deal with. And Don did a great job of explaining the options to us in the beginning. All of the tradespeople that worked on the house were skilled professionals. The quality of this house is excellent in our opinion. No details were overlooked, and we look forward to many happy years here!” – Randy & Kathryn
