In our minds, there is no excuse in 2012 to not have an interactive, user-friendly website if you want to pursue highly engineered, monumental projects. We just lost a substantial government exterior cladding project last week to a company whose website makes no mention of Metal Composite Material and touts their specialty as interior walls and ceilings. Memorably, we once even competed on a $750K university project with a roofer who describes on their website their expertise with thatched roof tiki bars. Yes, I’m serious. For us though, our website is the portal through which architects and contractors first encounter Miller-Clapperton and we want to make a strong first impression.
I encourage you to visit www.millerclapperton.com and surf around a little bit. Some specific improvements from our prior website are below:
- Our inclusion of Trespa® as a product offering. Our historical focus has been on Metal Composite Material, but we are also one of only 10 Certified Trespa® Meteon dealers in North America and have fabricated and installed over 150,000 square feet of High Pressure Laminate material since 2007.
- Biographies of our owners and senior management team
- An interactive map of our completed projects utilizing Google maps that then links to a gallery of each project. Please note there are hundreds of projects for which we do not have pictures and therefore, are not included on this map. It will be an on-going process to complete this section.
- Testimonials from industry associates and past customers as to our workmanship and ethics
- A better platform for our weekly blog that makes it easier to view comments and recent tags
- There is now a dynamic gallery divided into nine categories of building type which features hundreds of pictures of completed projects
- A products page that showcases the different materials, manufacturers, and systems we offer and allows for downloads of brochures, color charts, and LEED information
- A streamlined contact page that incorporates our presence on Facebook, Picassa, LinkedIn, Twitter, and YouTube
Thank you for reading our blog and thank you in advance for visiting www.millerclapperton.com. Have a great day.
