Project Scope

After a disappointing experience with a previous Kentico Partner, Bechtel was understandably cautious. However, our persistence and offer to audit their existing Kentico website's code won their trust. Our thorough review revealed significant damage to the core CMS, necessitating a rebuild on a newer version of Kentico CMS.

Before fully committing to us for their global corporate website, Bechtel tested our skills on two smaller projects: "The Art of the Build" and "Build 100." Both projects, celebrating modern construction marvels and industry insights, were successfully integrated into the main Bechtel corporate site.

At i3 Digital, we thrive on challenges and excelled in these projects, delivering two outstanding websites within budget and on schedule. This success not only showcased our expertise but also demonstrated the true potential of a well-implemented Kentico CMS to Bechtel.

The Solution

Bechtel's confidence in our team led to entrusting us with the complete redesign and rebuild of their global website, www.bechtel.com. Their goal was a visually impactful site that effortlessly shares information across seven continents. To highlight Bechtel's stunning global projects, i3 Digital created a dynamic grid, serving both as a showcase and a tool to engage potential leads.

This new website cements Bechtel's status as a global industry leader, making it simpler to share their expertise and attract business leads. Subscribing to Bechtel's updates is now a breeze, enhancing their outreach. We built the site with SEO at its core, incorporating all necessary elements like metadata, canonical links, and event tracking. Furthermore, we empowered Bechtel's team with the ability to effortlessly update and customise content and layouts with a suite of custom widgets.
