Aecon Group
Website Development

Background:

Aecon is Canada’s largest publicly-traded construction and infrastructure development company. For more than a century, Aecon and its predecessors have helped build many of Canada’s most famous landmarks – from the CN Tower and St. Lawrence Seaway, to the Vancouver Sky Train and Halifax Shipyards.
Aecon had recognized that its website was dated, lacked creative appeal and did not take full advantage of modern web technologies. To bring new life to their website, while ensuring the company could maintain the site on a regular basis through an advanced and easy-to-use content management system, Aecon turned to Hagon Design Inc. and their technology partner Sandbox Software Solutions.

The Project:

Working together, Aecon, Hagon Design and Sandbox Software mapped out, designed and architected a progressive website focused on the company’s target audiences (investors, potential clients, clients and potential employees). Heavy emphasis was placed on presenting the great successes of the company through the stunning visual design of the site.

To support the company’s initiatives, the new bilingual and highly functional website features a number of dynamic and interactive components including an advanced media room, online video, dynamic
project galleries and publications. The website also integrated with a number of third-party tools including Google Maps, a job opportunity management system, social media sites and a real-time share price feed.

Outcome:

The new website was launched in November 2011 and was an immediate success. The creative design garnered much praise and maintaining the website within the INTRATUITIVE CMS has made for easy and rapid deployment of content by Aecon staff.
