portfolio : Westfield Park
Longhoughton Village Development Trust (LVDT) approached cornerpiece with a requirement to design two websites, one to promote their latest project Westfield Park and another more basic website for themselves. Westfield Park is a brand new state of the art Community & Sports Venue with two full size grass football pitches, a seven-a-side synthetic turf pitch (STP), both supported by changing facilities, a large function room, a smaller committee room and office and a natural play area. The website had to engage both the local community and any other potential clients interested in using the various facilities. With a vibrant look, cycling images, easy to use navigation, blog/news section and many powerful tools we hope to have given Westfield Park just what they asked for and more.
With our bespoke booking system clients can check the availability of and request bookings of the various facilities direct from website. From within our CMS (content management system), LVDT can manage these booking requests and expand them into recurring bookings etc in a similar fashion to Microsoft Outlook's Calendar. As some of these bookings are for social / community activities, we included the ability to make a booking a 'shared event' which then displays the booking details in the Events Calendar and Listing so the community can see exactly what events are on, when and where.
Both website were built around our own CMS allowing content updates from the client at their convenience. Our CMS includes XML Sitemaps and automatic search engine submission, so all the major search engines are informed of the website and all its pages and content immediately after every edit.
In addition to the website design, LVDT required the design of two logos for both Westfield Park and LVDT. After several drafts and styles the final selections were made and we provided LVDT with print ready and screen ready versions of the logos. As LVDT required hosting for both websites and may wish to host other websites in the future, we recommended a VPS (Virtual Private Server) and configured the server for them.
Longhoughton Village Development Trust approached cornerpiece as a local company and because they were able to take the Trust's ideas and turn them into reality.
Cornerpiece presented a number of costed options and explained them in a simple and non-technical way. They also ensured that if we wanted to develop the Westfield Park website in the future we could do so easily.
The website has given the Trust and Westfield Park a professional looking and multi purpose information and booking tool. We found cornerpiece to be very understanding and helpful throughout the entire process.
