Rudds Consulting Engineers is a successful consulting engineering firm with offices located in Canberra, Australia and Melbourne, Australia. Considered a leader in its field, Rudds is a multi-award winning company which specialises in environmentally-friendly and innovative engineering solutions.
Rudds approached Praxis Interactive in late 2012 with a view to re-developing their web presence with a fresh new responsive design to cater for traditional browsers, smartphones and tablets. They also expressed a desire to build a web-based 'project database' to manage their growing portfolio of engineering projects, with both a back-end management interface and a portfolio of selected projects viewable on the public site.
Maintaining a rapid iterative development cycle with regular collaboration with Rudds, Praxis Interactive delivered the new site in less than three months using our new responsive design framework and Praxis CMS, our own tailored and highly-polished version of SilverStripe.
With a sizeable collection of award-winning engineering projects to showcase, a 'carousel' of projects was created on the home page of the site, smoothly sliding in steps from right to left. The carousel is also responsive, adapting seemlessly to mobile devices, and is also managed using the CMS interface.
