Client & Requirement
Acorn Analytical Services are an asbestos consultancy with offices in Leeds, Northampton and now London. Their 30+ strong team provide asbestos surveys and testing to government bodies and private companies across the UK. They approached us in early 2017 for a web refresh. Their website, which was previously designing in house, was a little dated and needed a redesign.
Their requirement was for a more modern website, and one which considered the visiting user. Their previous site was slow to load, and a glitchy ‘smooth scroller’ ensured that the user experience was actually rather poor. The aim was to build a quicker website for search, and one that was able to showcase all of the Acorn services.
Our web design team in Northampton created a 50 page+ website, with templates for future campaigns and content. The website itself was built on WordPress, which was utilised on the previous site. As with all of the websites we design, it was built to be mobile responsive.
- contact forms, configured using Contact Form 7
- lead generation forms – used to gain information for asbestos testing quotes
- a blog, which is used on a fortnightly basis to share industry relevant news
- sign in button, which allows customers to sign into a 3rd party website for updates on their project
