After taking over the entire ICT of Southon Engineering, Tech Guardian designs and hosts the business website towards a befitting online presence.

The Project

Tech Guardian initially took over Southon Engineering’s ICT January 2013. After revamping their ICT structure in a very sustainable way, we identified the need to give them a fully functional website.

They had previous had a website which was just a collection of few non-W3C-compliant webpages that they could not get updated. This website also had a get quote form that never worked amongst many other broken links.

We guided the Office Manager and the Managing Director towards agreeing a pure, simple, clean and concise design that is fully functional.

Considering their massive portfolio of projects including the cenotaph designed for Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the steel works they did for the historic Spitbank Fort, we included a simple portfolio showcasing feature.

We also featured pictures of their top latest works on a slider while also succinctly describing their key services on the welcome page towards informing visitors as much as possible without necessarily having to do many clicks.

The essence of accreditations in their industry was well treated with images of accreditations on the footer across all the web pages.

The finished website was a pure and simple design with compact but yet comprehensive company information. Southon Engineering was very pleased especially with their ‘Get an Estimate’ form that is now functional and makes it easy for prospective clients to contact them.

The Client
Southon Engineering are constructional engineers, steel fabrications and Security Specialists with over 25Years experience in the trade.

With their own workshop and installation teams, they specialise in Security Works, Gates, Railings, Fencing, staircases and handrails. Some of their high profile projects include One Hyde Park and the Imperial War Museum.

Initial Handover
April, 2013

Present & Future
The site is now managed by client as we taught the staff how to update pages with texts and images. Tech Guardian however often helps with very technical requirements including web hosting and footer codes amongst others as required.
