Context and challenge
Monroe Brothers Ltd have over 35 years of cryogenic knowledge. They specialise in cryogenics, process engineering and new product development. The combination of engineering analysis and experience brings innovative and cost effective designs into reality.
We have known Monroe Brothers Ltd for a while, so it was delightful to be approached to design and develop a new website for them. Our existing relationship helped us to understand their needs quickly. We were tasked with creating a website that would help users to understand the areas in which Monroe Brothers Ltd work, as well as their vast experience.
Approach and elements covered
We began by working to understand Monroe Brothers Ltd’s needs and the user needs. The website needed to work well for those already within the industry, to show the breadth and depth of their knowledge.
Once we had determined the needs, we translated this into a functional specification and worked on the structure of the site. Within this phase we worked on the site structure with Charles to determine what pages would be required and how they would fit together.
It was important that we also included the history of the business, which was originally founded as a shipping company in 1920.
With the strategy, scope and structure in place, we worked on the visual designs with Charles. We included Charles at every step, so that he could provide feedback across the whole journey of the website project.
With the visual designs complete and approved we were able to then build the website, test it and launch it.
Benefits and outcomes to Monroe Brothers Ltd
Monroe Brothers Ltd now have a fast, secure and bespoke website, that perfectly fits the needs of the business, but also the users. The site is responsive, working well on desktop, tablets and mobile. It achieves over 92/100 for Performance, Accessibility, Best Practices, SEO and registers a Progressive Web App (PWA).
