TDA Group - Website Design & Build
Our website design and development team at Bigwave Marketing helped TDA Group develop a new website that elevates user experience through quality design and navigation and to ensure they could benefit from a larger, better-functioning website that manages TDA’s multiple sectors and services.
A new website with greater user experience
This provider of outsourced building consultancy, engineering and property services by Torbay Borough Council utilises a colour palette to aid navigation to a wider audience segmentation. We chose this project as they have destinations and a property portfolio to present alongside events.
The built-in tagging systems enable case studies, news, and events to be pushed around the site and appear on relevant sections with management contained to a single source in the WordPress CMS.
For instance, a case study can appear in the case study section and simultaneously feed into relevant ‘Sector’ or ‘Services’ pages. This makes the site more approachable to the visitor whose provided with information that’s more relevant and supports their journey.
A brand-new website with one built-in CMS
The build took three months during which the site was purposefully expanded through two separate websites to replace an older satellite website shortly after the build and uses a WordPress multi-site configuration.
This provides TDA with one central CMS platform to manage content across all its web properties. News and events can now flow between sites whilst being managed centrally as one post. Likewise, styles and themes can be replicated or differed depending on the audience type.
