Stanley Bragg

Background

Stanley Bragg Architects Limited (SBAL), based in Colchester and London – are a forward thinking architectural practice, serving a wide variety of local, regional and national clients.

SBAL’s company ethos is to design successful buildings and environments across a range of sectors including retail, residential, education and masterplanning – on time and within budget

Brief

When SBA approached Mackman, its website had a strong visual appearance, but it was very difficult for the team to update due to the platform it was built on. The website didn’t reflect the modern and innovative values of the work produced by SBAL.

SBAL required Mackman to develop a new website with the following design and functionality features:

  • SBAL brand to be applied across the website to ensure consistency with other marketing collateral
  • Attract and engage with their target audience to generate an increase in the number of quality enquiries
  • Easy to administer by the SBAL team
  • Increase the profile of individual team members
  • Responsive website
  • Fully optimised for search
  • Central hub for marketing activities

Solution

  • A sophisticated and fully responsive website was developed on WordPress, allowing the SBAL team to easily update content
  • Website persona development and a thorough content audit highlighted a need to update SBAL’s original website structure
  • An “Our Staff” page was created to promote each member of the SBA team
  • Clear call to actions were placed strategically across the website, which took into consideration the various user journeys through the site and aimed to encourage quality enquiries
  • A clear and easy to use project section allowing SBAL to showcase their previous work with a single dimension filtering system

Measurement

A comparison of analytics of the SBAL’s previous website vs their new responsive website has shown:

  • 71% increase in sessions
  • 103% increase in average duration on the website
  • 4550% increase in social referrals
  • 320% increase in sessions on mobile devices

What the client says…

 “Mackman understood our brief and company ethos, and have developed a more ’personable’ easy to use website – which we hope will assist our clients/ consultants in selecting SBAL for their projects”

Ian Mosley, Managing Director – Stanley Bragg

What Mackman says…

“We are delighted to have built and designed a responsive website for Stanley Bragg Architects (SBA) that reflects their company ethos, easily allowing their clients to navigate the site and most importantly get in touch, whether that be on mobile, tablet or desktop. Its new site has been built to easily and visually showcase the range of architectural work SBA can undertake. SBA clients and customers were at the heart of the website design with function, content and structure based on their needs for knowledge and reassurance that SBA could undertake any project.”
