The Web Creatives

Solihull MBC website upgrade

A contract with Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council to replace the CMS behind their existing website, and then create the the page templates for their new CMS and help with populating the site with the required content, images and videos.


Initially a 9 month contract, we were hired to complete the project which took almost 2 years but gave them a much more modern look and feel as well as a more robust back-end in the new CMS.

Also helped with the integration of the various functionalities on the site, so worked closely with the IT Department to ensure this went smoothly and all worked according to plan.

Had to learn 2 Content Management Systems – the one for the existing site (Red Dot) and the replacement one (Dot Net Nuke) and then create the page templates to enable them to create the pages that were being transferred over to the new site, and any new pages that would need to be created in the future.
