The leading international firm of architects Lewis and Hickey has launched a new website to promote its business. Originally founded in 1894, the practice has been trading for around 120 years and is currently ranked 33rd in the Architects Journal ‘AJ100’ rankings.
The new website design is based around a central large image pane which illustrates the practice's work in a wide range of sectors. The site has a clean, uncluttered and fresh aesthetic, with simple and intuitive navigation. The site is also ‘responsive’ so the format and navigation of the website changes automatically to suit the viewing device, such as tablets and smartphones.
Nick Riley, Director of Business Development for the Group said; “Our new website is a positive step forward for us. It contains a lot of new content in terms of clients and projects. I believe it also conveys a much more contemporary impression of both our work and our business. The website will become an intrinsic part of our on-going media marketing now, especially through Twitter and LinkedIn.”
The website aims to promote all aspects of the business, including its excellent geographical coverage, both in the UK and abroad from its seven offices.
Paul Miele, Group Chief Executive said; “This is another milestone for our business. Whilst we enjoy a superb heritage, our focus is very much on looking forward and we firmly believe that the website encapsulates this. We are a very diverse business and the new website will really reinforce this message, which we trust will allow us to expand work in new sectors, to further compliment sectors where we already have a strong profile".
