The brief

UP for DIGITAL have been working with Colas since 2015 and have been responsible for developing their digital brand assets and the ongoing evolution of the Colas website.

The central brief was to position Colas as one of the leading infrastructure specialists in the UK and constantly evolve the website to showcase the diverse range of services that Colas offer as well as the magnitude of the projects that they work on. The website has to constantly support both their bids for contracts as well as help their career department attract the very best talent in the UK.

There has also been a subtle evolution of their brand over the past few years that has been reflected in the website design.

The solution 

The website has been built on the popular Umbraco CMS and gives the Colas digital team enough flexibility to create any page structure they can imagine, whilst always remaining within the brand guardrails.

This has been achieved by developing a large number of flexible modules that can be used in all pages: These modules give the editors complete flexibility but always within the brand guidelines.
