Cameron came highly recommended and we are really happy with his work. He saw us through every phase of a major home renovation, during which we converted an original 1950’s bungalow into a modern family home. We didn’t quite know where to begin, and Cameron helped us navigate the renovation process from beginning to end. He helped us locate old property records and get City approval for our renovation plans; he worked with us to design an open-concept home without overhauling the existing floor plans; he narrowed down our search for fixtures and suppliers by making excellent recommendations; and he accompanied us to meetings with key suppliers to help communicate our goals and provide design specs.
Cam understood our goals, respected our budget and made thoughtful suggestions along the way. He’s an excellent communicator, very professional and very personable. Renovating our home was exciting but overwhelming, and Cameron was a trustworthy resource who could answer our questions and ease our concerns along the way.

Cameron Maltby was the Project Architect with the firm who designed our off-grid, recreational home located near Salt Spring Island. He was responsible for not only the design, but for walking the project through a difficult approval process involving the Island Trust. Throughout the process Cameron listened to our needs and goals and helped to translate those into the design that became our home.
Cameron was effective in communicating the design with us as well as our selected builder. Not only that, he was open to design and detailing ideas put forward by ourselves and our builder. This open dialogue contributed to the overall success of the project. Cameron’s commitment to our vision and his professionalism through the design and construction process would allow us to recommend his services.
We hired Cam through a referral from our builder when we decided to renovate the exterior of our home. The project was largely cosmetic in nature – new windows, new siding and some minor alterations to a small roofline.
Cam developed a couple of ideas for us and we proceeded with one immediately because it captured the new look we were hoping to achieve. We didn’t need to meet with him often – he was quick with minor changes and listened well to our ideas. Cam’s direct experience was very helpful when it came to choosing paint colours and stains. This is what we wanted – someone who could help quickly narrow down the broad range of options.
We enjoyed working with Cam – he kept us well informed of timing and costs for his services so there were no surprises. He accommodated our schedules for meetings. We would happily recommend Cam to other clients.

Over the past several years I have enjoyed the opportunity of working with Cameron Maltby of Maltby Design on various design projects. In addition to the usual skills of an architect – building design, knowledge of building codes and permit processes, materials, budgets and construction review, Cameron is also a good listener and an effective communicator. He is honest, straight forward and approachable. Great to work with!

Cameron was the design professional on a recent townhouse remodelling project of which I was general contractor. He provided me with a full set of permit drawings and was engaged throughout the project to oversee construction. I found his drawings and details to be concise, accurate and thorough; and his design to be aesthetically pleasing. He was readily available for consultation, providing quick and correct answers to problems on numerous occasions, while also listening and responding to the needs of the client. His knowledge and professional attitude went a long way towards helping me achieve my goal of complete customer satisfaction.

Cameron brings strong design and a thorough understanding of construction techniques to his work. The plans were very well done and we sailed through permitting. He was available to meet and answer questions the builders had in a timely fashion. Maltby Design is a pleasure to work with.
