Design & Construction Innovations is a full service General Contractor specializing in commercial, residential and government construction projects operating in the State of Florida. After I met with Robert, the CEO, I was able to distill his main goals for the website. One of his frustrations with his previous website was the obscurity of important information like what they are about and how to contact DCI. So for the new website, he wanted a way for his visitors to know how to get in touch easily, to know what are the services they provide, and for the ability to view and browse the company’s portfolio of construction projects.
With the above considerations in mind, I added a contact button right from the start, and a short introductory paragraph with a link which takes the user to an expanded introduction section immediately below the fold. This area contains a summary about the company and their services.
The contact button gave the qualified visitors the extra option and ability to get to the contact page quickly. Once on the contact page the visitor had various options to choose from in order to get connected with a representative from DCI, including phone, email, address, and a contact form.
The projects were made accessible from the home page via a 3 column section. The project page was displayed in a simple to navigate grid layout with each project thumbnail opening up to the single project page. Photos in the project could be viewed in full size and browsed via a lightbox.
