For the past few months, we’ve been working closely with the team at Swietelsky. Founded in 1936, this Austrian firm have been building infrastructure across Europe for over 75 years; we’ve been working with them to publicise their joint venture with Babcock Engineering, bringing these two giants together to form SB Rail
We’ve designed, developed and now launched their new website – with an online equipment catalogue, case studies, team biographies and careers information.
Working with the team on-site at SB Rail’s Glasgow headquarters, we put together a full site plan in advance, preparing support for the individual site sections and user roles. Our brief reviewed and agreed, we took our (admittedly minimal) feedback and updates back to our submitted design layout, updating and resubmitting for feedback and sign-off.
As is our usual strategy, we moved development into two parallel streams at this point. Our developers – Chris and James H – worked internally on the site build, stripping designs back for mobile and tablet functionality and coding custom sections of the site, while account manager Kit shuttled between our office and Glasgow to pull together and integrate content on-site with the client. On this front, we were helped immeasurably by excellent copywriting and an extensive media library to choose from – great photography always makes the difference when integrating content.
Upon completion of content, the site was put through our comprehensive 32-point cross browser/pre-launch checklist, and then across to directors at both Swietelsky and Babcock for approval, prior to launch (which we oversaw, setting up DNS on the domain for web and email access).
A superb project all round, and a great looking site that we’re really proud to have our name on.
