Innovation & Not For Profit
The Building Centre exists to promote innovation in the built environment. It was established in 1931 and this well-known organization has developed into a not-for-profit which is dedicated to providing information, education and inspiration to all sectors of the built environment as well as the general public. They are centrally located in London on Store Street and they are open to all people that are involved in both construction, architecture or people who just want to learn. It is a place where people can learn and develop deep knowledge about the built environment from true experts. The team at Mind Digital were approached by a partner agency that was working with The Building Centre and after a thorough selection process, we were selected to help them bring to life what they dreamed of. After a lot of hard-work from all team members involved, what resulted was a beautiful yet highly functional website that not only looked great but served the purpose of both the not-for-profit and its website visitors. We were tasked with helping this partner agency slice the HTML from the numerous PSD’s that were provided to us including ensuring that all the HTML was fully responsive across all devices. We delivered what were tasked with and more.
The back-end of this website was built in Ruby on Rails giving it the ultimate functionality without compromising on the speed needed to run a website of this size. The customized Ruby on Rails CMS platform was perfect for the The Building Centre as it allowed the not-for-profit team to easily change and make edits to their website without any hiccups or needing an engineering degree to figure out. The entire website was made fully responsive rendering perfectly across all desktops, tablets and mobile phones giving it a consistent brand experience as well as ultimate convenience for its visitors. The robust website was designed by the partner agency and we help customizing everything in from an aesthetic and functional standpoint to ensure the client loved the final product. What resulted after successful completion of this project was a brilliant, highly functional, secure, and super-fast website that the client was happy with as well as our partner agency were delighted with what we helped them accomplish. We look forward to working with them on more projects in the near future and building a strong partnership with them.
