The New Benchmark in Construction Websites

The newly launched Alumasc Exterior Building Products website is designed to provide comprehensive product and technical information for architects, specifiers and contractors. Fully redesigned and updated, this innovative website is being hailed as a leap forward in online resources for the building products and construction market. The new site covers the entire AEBP business, including each of its building products sectors – in effect, it’s five sites within one.

“We’re very excited about our new website which is a genuine working tool for Alumasc’s key customers,” explains Anita Houghton, Marketing Manager. “Alongside traditional information on Alumasc’s product and system solutions, website users will find a whole host of added value content. The web project team aimed to make an invaluable aid for users rather than just a product showcase. We genuinely believe it offers a new benchmark among web activity in this sector.”

The site has been designed for maximum interactivity. Its many specification and calculation tools include CAD files available to download as both DWG & PDF and NBS specification generators for each of the five brand categories. The comprehensive suite of calculation tools covers rainwater gutters and roof outlets, along with U value calculators for roof and wall insulation. The website navigation and structure allows quick and accurate drill down and selection of products and systems, inclusive of product code and search functionality. In addition, information can be shared within or between organisations using the ‘E-mail a colleague’ pages and literature can be ordered and CDP Seminar’s booked on-line.

Client needs have been carefully studied and assessed and among many new features is the My File system that allows users to build up personalised folders online, for faster, simpler access to information relevant to individual projects. CAD drawings, NBS specifications, COSHH and product data sheets etc can be saved and accessed by secure login. This facilitates quick retrieval of project information from any remote location.

With state of the art 3D Computer Generated Images throughout, the quality of information is unrivalled. “While quality prevails over quantity every time, the new Alumasc website stacks up very nicely when you look at the figures,” says Anita.

They include:

• Over 23,000 distinct pages

• Over 12,000 individual files

• Split into over 191 directories

• Over 3500 products & elements listed

• Over 1000 individual CAD files

• Over 400 individual NBS Specification documents

• Over 2,500 Images
