Client: Cameron House Resort (Loch Lomond) Ltd

Architect: 3DReid

Contractor: ISG Construction

Project value: £40m

Project team: Richard Mackenzie

Nestled in the heart of the Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park, Cameron House Resort offers 140 guest bedrooms. The main hotel building, a former baronial mansion, dates from the 17th century, and is now known as The Auld House which homes 14 of the resort’s luxury suites. The resort also hosts a restaurant and a bar, function and meeting rooms, a leisure wing, as well as a cinema.

RMP were commissioned to provide acoustic design consultancy for the Cameron House rebuild and the new extension project, including planning guidance and recommended acoustic design criteria. Special attention was given to the recommendation of specific acoustic glazing for the function room and finishes to control the reverberation time in the event space to provide a comfortable environment and ensure speech intelligibility.

The wider Cameron House Resort is home to an award-winning spa with a rooftop infinity pool. RMP provided acoustic advice on the completely remodelled Cameron Leisure Club, including the poolhall. A key aspect of this project was managing the internal sound insulation between different uses in the leisure wing and controlling reverberation time and ambient noise in the key spaces. RMP were also involved in the refurbishment of the 29-seat Cameron Cinema and provided recommendations on the acoustic absorbent ceiling and walls for guests to enjoy the old Hollywood atmosphere of the location.

Involved early in the design stages of the project, RMP also carried out the sound insulation testing and ambient noise measurements within bedrooms and public spaces following completion of the redevelopment. The Cameron House project is a prime example of RMP providing acoustic support from the early design stages right until the completion of the redevelopment, thus allowing the best possible acoustic outcome for the resort.
