Justine Cherubino - Owner of Lawn on Lorne
I was recommended to contract Cameron Bell of Belco Group for all elements of my project- an extensive house renovation , and extension with landscaping ,in the coastal location of Lorne.
Right from the very first meeting I was impressed by Cam’s easy going nature ‘can do’ approach and extremely positive attitude.
The range of professional services provided by Belco Group was perfect for my project- due to neatly encompassing all realms of the planning, designing, renovation and building process.
Starting with a features survey - followed by renovation advice, then planning and building applications to, and meetings with council ,a detailed extension and landscaping design including impressive fly through 3D video link simulating walking through the house and garden. There was nothing that Cam couldn’t do!
Literally all elements of the sometimes confusing and tricky business of building and renovating are very professionally and efficiently managed by Belco Group, and in a price competitive manner.
The very high standard of plans , drawings and design innovations delivered time efficiently make Belcro an outstanding choice for any prospective client seeking assistance for a small or large scale residential and even commercial project.
I highly recommend Cam from Belco to support your building project, as he is extremely personable, a great listener, and a very possibilities oriented person-Cam ensures the sometimes challenging process of project managing is made easy and fun.

We had Belco Group draw up plans for our café we recently opened and are more than happy with what was achieved. Belco Group's knowledge for details and requirements was excellent, as was their regular communication, which made things run smoothly. Belco Group's approach is very professional and I have no hesitation in recommending Belco Group for their services.
