5 Great Website Designs for Commercial Construction and What Makes Them Awesome
The commercial construction websites featured on this list share some really important design elements and features. Each website has a gallery of completed projects. Some of the sites highlight project details with case studies. Most importantly, they are all well designed.
The Weitz company has a very impressive site that benefits from a technical theme and a myriad of marketing features.
The user interface takes advantage of bread crumb navigation informing you of your location on the site at all times.
The large home page image slider highlights completed projects and the area of construction they are from.
The projects section contains an extensive list of completed projects.
As you navigate through the site, client testimonials are displayed in the right sidebar of some of the pages.
The site could benefit by spreading out the content and adding more “white space” between elements. This would not only enhance legibility, but the large amount of information would automatically feel less daunting.
The site incorporates large stylized images focusing on the employees of the company.
The site has a nice neutral palette with little pops of red to bring in the company’s brand.
The mix of drop down and sidebar navigation makes it easy to find your way through the site.
Although the site is nice overall, it’s legibility could be improved by enlarging the overall site and fonts by 15 to 25 percent.
5. LG Development Group
LG Development Group in Chicago has a fun, contemporary website that echos the style of their work.
The wood textured background gives the site a nice contemporary feel.
The navigation is simple and easy to understand.
The gallery for completed work takes advantage of a well stuctured grid with a fun animated filter effect.
The one thing I would change is the font size. The grey text on the wood textured background is hard to read on some of the pages. If the font size was increased by 10% the legibility is improved dramatically. LG Development Group’s site could also benefit from the use of case studies in the completed work gallery.
All great commercial construction websites should include a way to show off past projects, case studies for featured projects, and definitley great design. Does your website have what it takes to be one of the great commercial construction sites?
