We recently caught up with Cameron Pryde, estimator and project manager of Architectural Cladding Suppliers and Professional Plumbing Contractors.
We aim to reveal more about the people behind Architectural Cladding Suppliers… These people help deliver on the ACS promise made to all clients, supporting them to provide exceptional results every time.
Tell us a bit about yourself and your role?
I work across facets of Architectural Cladding Suppliers and Professional Plumbing Contractors, mainly in estimating and project management for our site projects. I have been with the company for 15 years and I have been a registered plumber for 11 years.
My work involves estimating, project coordination, assisting with job enquiries, supporting both builders and installers, and working across the factory/production and on-site. Every day provides me with an opportunity to help our clients realise their project vision and meet their key requirements.
What are your responsibilities?
My responsibilities include estimating, project management, client management, site support, and other day-to-day activities that get thrown in.
I am proud of the way our project team works together to deliver solutions specific to project challenges. Our attention to detail, brainstorming different approaches, and providing tailored solutions are all part of the value we deliver to our clients.
How long have you been working in the industry?
I have been working in the industry for more than 15 years. I have had the opportunity to work on diverse projects across several sectors in different roles, learning from the ground up. Our project team is constantly surrounded by new ideas and we are continuously evolving as a business.
What satisfies you most about your work?
I think the most satisfying thing about my work involves the people I work with and the environment. Working closely as a team on day by day basis enables us to come up with new ideas to exceed our client’s expectations. I also enjoy the diverse projects we work on, all are unique and allow us to problem solve and be creative.
What metal cladding products are your favourites?
I like all the metal cladding profiles we produce, however, if I had to choose a favourite it would be Interlocking. It has a fresh and simple design element our clients also love to install. Seeing our installers use some creative freedom with different material finishes and colours to deliver for their clients, is something I enjoy being part of.
What trends can you see emerging in the industry?
The trend for both builders and homeowners wanting to use metal cladding more and more is definitely on the rise and that is great to see. I think the industry is embracing metal cladding as an architectural feature for many projects in both residential and commercial applications. The benefits delivered from low maintenance and non-combustible metal cladding profiles are being realised by all stakeholders involved, from architects and builders to installers and end-users.
