"...there is no doubt about it. The websites that Web Foundry creates work. And in choosing to work with Web Foundry you will be important to them and in turn they will bring fresh ideas and thinking to your business."
Russell Imrie, Managing Director
The Picture of Health Club & Spa is based at the Best Western Keavil House Hotel, part of the Queensferry Hotel group for which Web Foundry manages several websites. The health club offers swimming, state-of-the-art gym facilities, a varied programme of exercise classes and a range of spa treatments to both hotel guests and local members.
Web Foundry were to produce a dedicated site with its own branding, showcasing information and offers for non-hotel guests, so that the health club could be promoted separately from the hotel. It was important for the health club to have its own identity whilst retaining the reputation of a high end hotel.
The website was built using Joomla CMS with a custom template. The site is very interactive, with lots of imagery and slideshows. Users can book guest passes, toggle varying membership rates, view the latest offers and check out the interactive exercise class timetable. Seasonal changes to the timetable and to offers and membership rates are easily updated from the administrator section of the CMS, which is essential for a dynamic and competitive business.
Web Foundry met with the client to discuss the requirements and produced designs for both the brand and the website. Once accepted, Web Foundry developed the custom CSS template in less than four weeks from start to launch.
The client was very pleased with the results - the look and feel of their business had been refreshed with new branding, including a striking, contemporary logo and colour palette. Through its simple yet sophisticated design the site made it easy for users to access the information they required, enabling the client to achieve their ultimate goal – a marked increase in the uptake of membership enquiries, guest visits and spa treatment bookings.
