Background to the Project
Brownlie Ernst and Marks (BEaM) is an international architectural practice involved in civil engineering, transportation and infrastructure projects. They specialise in providing architectural services for some of the most impressive bridges, tunnels and transport structures around the world.
BEaM approached us with the challenge to develop a website for them that showcased their incredible talent.
BEaM provided us with a clear idea of how they wanted the new site to look – along with a detailed brief for the project. So it was down to our development team to work with the designs and turn their visions in to a working website.
Once again our preferred CMS, WordPress came in to action and with the addition of some Custom Post Types really breathed life in to the designs and the administration side of the project.
The website was constructed in a linear fashion, taking users from the homepage, introducing members of the team, how to contact them and finally, interactive project pages.
Given the type of clients BEaM work with it is also extremely important that the site works across all devices – from large screen desktops (that their construction project colleagues would be using) right the way down to smartphone handsets they can be used on site. So prior to handover we carried out an extensive browser testing ensuring the site met their expectations.
We’re proud to say that we handed over a fantastic, modern looking website with great functionality.
