Default Re: Recentering Camera when building

I don't think this is about your camera. Depending on how close you need to get, one of the keys to this is getting your field of view (FOV) set so that you can get in real tight in the 3D window.

In your File > Settings... > 3D View tab, set the Default FOV very low (>5) and that will allow you to zoom and spin in close. At some point, however, some objects will begin to "disappear" as you get into close view. In those cases, start "hiding" other larger items, or just hide everything but the one or two items you're working with.
