What Sentinel Housing were looking for
Sentinel Housing were looking for a dedicated ‘microsite’ to act as a standalone Home Ownership listing, search & promotion facility for their properties and housing developments.
They needed something which was not only stylish but also thoroughly modern & usable on the move on mobile or tablet devices. It also needed to be easy for non-technical staff to maintain and update, with the ability to easily add new properties or details when these became available.
What we did
We were brought in to provide all web development and ‘front end’ implementation on the project. We guided our design partner for the project in implementing a ‘Responsive’ design & the alternative layouts & views required for a range of different content layouts involved, and fully developed the solution in line with these (including, of course, cross-browser and cross-device testing).
A custom built structure of content provides a clean, simple & user-friendly page for each housing development, with the simple ability for non-technical staff to add new properties, add new features (such as gallery images or floorplans) and even pick the accent colour used for the development to ensure stylised branding of each individual development.
Sentinel are already starting to realise the significant improvement the site provides on their ability to promote and connect people looking for a home with their properties & services, with plans to further expand the site’s role & functionality in the future.
We were more than happy to help!
