The Weitz Company is one of the oldest general contractors in the United States. With headquarters in Des Moines, as well as offices throughout the United States, they are also one of the largest commercial construction companies with an ENR Rank of 70, annual revenues in excess of $1,000,000,000 and more than 600 employees.
As one of the Midwest's largest commercial construction companies, Weitz needed a website that embraced their history, captured their culture and positioned Weitz as the Midwest's definitive leader for construction services. After a thorough review, they chose echo to build a dynamic, industry leading website.
Our strategy with the Weitz Website project was to build a site that was intentionally big, with modern features such an edge to edge design, interactive animations and a easy to digest, long page format.
Go big or go home. That was our thinking with the Weitz site. This great organization is a powerhouse in the construction industry and we wanted to deliver a website that conveyed the strength of Weitz. We developed a big design literally. It features big, strong typography, large graphics and big pages with strong content blocks. It adds up to a design that is big, bold and modern.
This website features an immersive, user focused experience. The edge to edge format fills your screen and the huge headlines grab your attention. As you scroll the page, headlines and other elements slide up subtly and well-positioned calls to action guide you. Each section is clearly defined and the elements all work in harmony.
Oracle owned Taleo is a market leading HR platform. Our custom programming within Taleo brought the identity of the site to Taleo resulting in a seamless user experience.
You're only as good as your work and Weitz has plenty of work to show off. We built a custom project section that features large, beautiful images along with well organized, project related content.
