Client: Southbase Construction

Case Studies


When you are a focussed and ambitious company your marketing and communications tools have to work hard to keep up. It’s important that your branding and website continue to represent your company as it grows, expands its services and reaches a wider audience.


Southbase Construction is a highly driven and successful company that have been based in Christchurch since 2013. They have taken on the most challenging of projects of the Christchurch Rebuild so far; and through exceeding expectations, Southbase has already earned a reputation for being the company to trust when your project needs a team that will go the extra mile. Whilst continuing to work hard in Christchurch, they are now setting their sights on national projects and came to us to redesign their website, to broaden its perspective and reach.


Inspired by the beauty of the iconic buildings developed by Southbase, the website has a clutter-free design to let the imagery do a lot of the talking. The refreshed copy and images work well within simple navigation to ensure users find what they are looking for easily. With the company expanding all the time, both in projects and locations, the website has a robust and easy-to-use Content Management System, which empowers our clients to make direct changes to their website.


The design and build of the website was based on the identity marks of Southbase; agile, responsive and honest. Therefore, users get to know the company as soon as they arrive on the website. Their website is now an accurate reflection of the company and has the capacity to grow as they undoubtedly will.

If your brand and website aren’t reflecting who you are, you should come and talk to us.
