Dive & Marine Contractors

WordPress Site Design & Build

I worked as a joint developer on this project which was a new build for a start up commercial diving and marine engineering company based in Kilkenny City

Twitter Bootstrap is also incorporated into the design so that the site is accessible and displays properly across multiple devices and screen sizes.

This project involved designing and building a website for a commercial diving company.

This was a new build website for a specialist diving and marine engineering company. It was built using a responsive theme which was customised to suit the company's needs. Dive and Marine Contractors Ltd are a new company that are hoping to break into and serve the specialist area of marine construction.

The brief was to develop a site that had a fresh look to it. The client also wanted the main colours used to be blue and white so that it tied in with the ocean. The project went through several changes in layout and style fom the initial meetings, concept drawings and wireframing until the client was happy with the finished design.

  • WordPress
  • Twitter Bootstrap
  • PHP
  • HTML
  • CSS
  • FTP
  • jQuery
  • Photoshop

Because it was a new company the client wanted the website to be clear and easy to navigate for visitors to it. To achieve this the number of pages was kept to a minimum and only important information was presented to the viewer. The site also features an image slider and an image gallery so that viewers could get a feel for the services the company provide.

The header was designed to appear like the top of the ocean with a viewpoint for the viewer from just under the water. There are also rays of light filtering down which help portray this perspective. Google Analytics, Statcounter, Google map, and Google plus page where set up to increase SEO and monitor activity for the website. A Sendola button to add this number was also set up at the end footer along with relevant contact details and email address.
