Bargate Homes brand refresh & website

Oyster has recently completed the new Bargate Homes website. 

The brief

Bargate Homes are a home builder based in the South of England. Starting with smaller developments, the company was now growing fast and as they took on larger sites they needed a website to help to promote their brand online. Bargate Home has a very clear vision, to build high quality homes in beautiful locations and the part of the brief was also to deliver a minor brand refresh to modernise the logo and introduce a secondary colour palette.

The new site should sell the Bargate Homes brand over and above individual houses, promoting the company as well as their developments. Where possible, the site should also deliver improved productivity for the company with integration with the CRM.

The solution

The finished site is built in Drupal and boasts Google map integration, responsive layouts and a parallax portfolio page. The site has been designed to convert more visitors into enquiries and to boost the site’s search engine rankings. User experience was key, and consideration was given to usability across both desktop and mobile devices through a responsive design and build.

The new site also integrates with Bargate’s CRM system, minimising the need for data entry. The website is now producing a considerable increase in enquiries and visitor numbers are also increased.
