New sites: Barbican Secure Parking, Andrew’s Golf, Shandy Hall Gift Shop

Posted on Wednesday, July 21st, 2010 by Helen

Barbican Secure Contract Parking recently commissioned a website from Bivouac Design Solutions, which was coded by Semlyen IT. This site for a secure car park in York is another one-page site, which includes an embedded Google map.

The car park provides 24 hour access to its secure premises in the Q-Park complex on Kent Street, and customers receive a dedicated Named space and personal transponder. There are even a few extras thrown in with the parking contracts, such as meals at the nearby York Pavilion Hotel and Langton’s Brasserie.

In other news, the new e-commerce site for Andrew’s Golf is now live – you can read more about this golf accessories shop in my earlier post. Another recent development is the Shandy Hall online gift shop, which is now fully operational on the website for the Laurence Sterne Trust.

Glamping site Jollydays Luxury Camping have just commissioned a major project for their online booking and payment system, and the gifted education publishers Royal Fireworks Press have asked us to use Issuu to provide sample pages for the books available on their site.

On the SEO side of things, organic children’s clothing retailers Twigs4Kids have commissioned some additional work. Having obtained a no. 1 position on for the search “organic children’s clothes”, their next target is to improve their positions for the named brands that they stock. The first two that we’ll be working on are Frugi and Little Shrimp.

The next sites in line for us to build are a new site for York estate agents Nigel Naish, and an online outlet for York curtain shop L & G Adams.

Redmove Estate Agents: Google Street View, DezRez

York Estate Agents

The new site for York estate agents Redmove, designed by Andy, went live last week. This was a redesign which includes integration of their DezRez database system, plus an advanced and versatile search tool which will bring up all the possible results that include any search string – e.g. a search for ‘d’ will include every listing that contains the letter ‘d’, a search for ‘dun’ will include listings such as those in Dunnington, and a search for ‘YO1′ will produce all listings for properties whose postcodes begin with these characters.

One of the most interesting things about this new site is the integration of Google Street View in addition to Google Maps. Although Street View is not available for every property yet, due to Google not having photographed everywhere in the UK, there are many property listings on which it is possible to include a Street View widget. This gives the viewer a chance to look at the exterior of the property and surrounding area in a more three-dimensional way, as well as explore the locality by virtually ‘travelling’ along the street.
