Atmos Consulting is a leading environmental consultancy firm with offices in Edinburgh, Inverness, and Mold. They provide expert technical, environmental and planning support and advice to utilities, developers, industry, communities and the public sector.
Atmos Consulting contacted Web Foundry in 2012 when they were looking for a Joomla specialist to take over the day to day maintenance of their corporate website. The main objectives were to provide reliable Joomla support services, offer value for money and a fast response as well as seamlessly taking over the ongoing maintenance of the existing site. More recently, we upgraded the website to the latest version of Joomla and redesigned it entirely. The website is now fully responsive and so can be viewed on a range of device types from desktops to tablets and phones.
The Technical Part
The website was built on a fully responsive, Joomla 3 custom template. The content of the website was entirely rethought and the different elements of the navigation are showcased in a way that users can clearly see all the different services proposed by Atmos Consulting. These are particularly detailed and contain images or maps integrated within each of the services. Moreover, the site also has a section featuring clients testimonials, as well as news section displaying the latest news within the company and the industry. The homepage incorporates a scrolling headline feature so that Atmos Consulting can portray their key messages clearly. The homepage also incorporates a module for the latest Tweets from the Atmos Consulting twitter account.
Additionally, a custom Joomla layout is applied to a section that is branded for a partnership scheme, which incorporates alternative colour schemes and logo, as well as additional content.The structure of the website is also optimised for SEO. Web Foundry provided services including keyword research, competitor analysis and support with the production of metadata to help the website get a better visibility on Google.
Web Foundry worked with the client, discussing the existing site and their requirements going forward. We developed a new responsive template and gave the company the opportunity and time to rethink and update their content architecture. The content production was supported by the relevant SEO research, to make sure it was accordingly suited to the targeted audiences. Web Foundry also provided a Joomla 3 training session, to refresh the Atmos Consulting team on content management in Joomla, and to highlight the new features that Joomla 3 has to offer.
Atmos Consulting works hard to make the most of their website, taking a great deal of responsibility in keeping it up to date and managing the content via the CMS admin area.
The new website was developed all while taking into account the evolution of the client’s brand and outlook of the company. The development of a responsive template aims to reach more prospective clients from any device type.
Atmos Consulting is continuously looking to move forward with their website and Web Foundry are on hand to support them in whichever way is required.
