Brittin Builders is a family-owned construction business based in Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand. They build top-of-the-range, architecturally-designed homes and have been involved in the construction of some of the highest spec buildings in the region.
The previous website was built in 2010 and hadn’t significantly changed since then. The design was therefore quite dated and wasn’t responsive – i.e. it didn’t adapt correctly when viewed on mobile devices. Web design technology, trends and user expectations have moved on significantly, so the website needed to be updated in order for the business to remain relevant and appealing to its target customer audience.
We researched and analysed the websites of some of the world’s biggest and best construction businesses, and identified ideas that helped form the inspiration for the new design. The result was a modern and completely new look, which also incorporates the family-business aspect of the branding – an important distinguishing factor of their identity.
We introduced a blog feature too, so that news and announcements can be posted on the website. Regular, fresh new content keeps their visitors interested, and also plays an important part in improving their ranking in search engines like Google.
We also ramped up the site’s security to protect it from spam and hacking, and implemented a variety of other technical best practices under the bonnet.
