Bespoke responsive website for Chepstow based civil engineering firm

I originally worked with Cass Hayward back in 2012 as one of my first clients. A lot changed over five years and they approached me again to design a brand new website.

The new website needed to have a very clean design with a strong focus on images of the many bridge projects Cass Hayward have worked on. As such, almost every page greets visitors with a full width banner image associated with the page. Where pages have multiple images, they fade in and out.

Some pages have specific layouts which without a knowledge of HTML and CSS would be tricky to implement. So code was written to take lightly formatted content and display it in different layouts, chosen on a page by page basis.

The contents of the website is entirely controlled through my CMS platform which I modified to suit their needs. They can manage all page text and imagery with no need for knowledge of coding.

As the website features a lot of large images, I took advantage of newer HTML5 features enabling smaller or larger versions of each image to load if the website is viewed on a phone, tablet or PC.

We were particularly impressed with the Content Management System - this provided us with an easy to use and instinctive tool to create the website structure and populate pages with text, photographs and videos.
