Through their world-leading research into advanced machining, manufacturing and materials, The University of Sheffield Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) assist manufacturers throughout the world. They help them to become more competitive through advanced techniques and technologies from their base in the Steel City.

As a fellow Sheffield-based company, we were delighted when AMRC approached us with several bespoke web development requirements. In order to communicate their capabilities and facilities with prospective clients, they required an appealing, informative new website and custom Content Management System (CMS).

Project Details

Prior to commencing our work on the website we built for AMRC, we undertook consultation with several of their existing stakeholders. This work played a vital influence on the strategy we subsequently devised; as we used online surveys to identify issues with the website prior to our involvement.

Visually, the site implements a streamlined interface designed to entice users to dig into the different areas AMRC specialise in. Whilst lots of information is required, the site has been designed to present it to users in an accessible way.

Alongside the front end development, we then build the client a customised CMS. This was designed with the goal of helping their team to quickly and easily manage the site on an ongoing basis. The system we developed included a members area, which includes restricted content and pages.

  • Custom CMS including members area featuring restricted content and pages
  • Hosting within the University network
  • Consultation with existing stakeholders to identify issues with the website prior to our involvement
  • Streamlined design to highlight core capabilities
