#makeitawesome: Simpson Gumpertz & Heger Launches New Responsive Website

February 10, 2015

Remember the storyline on Seinfeld where George Costanza passes himself off as an architect? It’s a classic, not to mention very entertaining. But really, if George ever did try his hand at architecture, I suspect his buildings would have ended up requiring the help of a firm like Simpson, Gumpertz & Heger (SGH).

SGH is a national engineering firm that designs, investigates, and rehabilitates structures, building enclosures, and materials. To better support their internal needs and more effectively tell their story to visitors, SGH recently launched a new responsive website.

Built on Drupal7, SGH’s new website addressed a number of project goals:

  • Launch of new creative design that improves visual appeal and provides opportunities to include interactive features
  • Implement a robust search feature that allows site visitors to easily find the project information they are seeking
  • Integrate Drupal with Knowledge Architecture (KA) internal database and create a centralized API that feeds project detail content from the database to the content management system

By integrating the internal database and content management system, information including project overviews, highlights, awards, markets, and related keywords is pushed from the database to the website and displayed in various ways. Website visitors can search by keyword, market, or service to find a specific project and reach out to a contact for that project, thereby improving access to the firm and helping further their business.

Check out the new site and then watch this cool video calling out highlights and features.
