Minerva Smart Cities | Website Design
BJ Creative was tasked by Nick Butler to build a website for Minerva Smart Cities. Together with landowners and investors, Minerva Smart Cities creates genuinely affordable places for people to live and work for the long term. Minerva has developed an innovative approach to the delivery of 100% genuinely affordable homes to rent. Their model significantly enhances the way housing and workspace is currently being delivered by taking a much longer-term view. BJ Creative was tasked to build them a website for their corporate company so that they had a presence that they could link to news stories reporting on their work.
Nick was setting up a new business and was not overtly basing this website on a need for people to organically find the firm. They had a large enough presence in the right arenas already, but without a digital presence, some firms question the authority of that firm. This business card style website provided all of the information that would be required for investors and future clients to check with. It enabled us to provide a biography for each of the members and their direct contact details.
Recent press coverage has also been included on the site so that others can see what the public are seeing in the newspapers and online press.
We built the site using ASP.NET 4.0 and incorporated NopCommerce as the main framework for the site to ensure that admin areas were correctly aligned and that the full suite of analytics tools could be used to track visitors.
The site was initially hosted by BJ Creative on our server so that changes could be amended quickly at our end and this also then enabled us to managed the domains chosen for the website.
