Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope® Unveils New Website Designed with Glazier and Architect Input
Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope® (OBE), a leading supplier of architectural glass, metal and hardware, announced today it has launched its new, user-friendly website. The company conducted several focus group sessions to gather feedback from glazing subcontractors and architects throughout the development process to ensure the new site is easy to use and meets the needs of design and construction teams.
Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope set out to revamp their website to include features like product comparison tools, easy to download documents like specification sheets and CAD details, and more detailed case studies to make collaborating on solutions to project challenges easier for their customers. Additionally, the company entered a strategic partnership with the American Institute of Architects earlier this year and has looked to their expert market research data to understand what their stakeholders said was missing from manufacturers’ websites.
“It was important to us that contractors, architects and specifiers, can use our site as a resource throughout their project design, development and installation process,” said Brenda Kelly, vice president of marketing and commercial excellence at Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope. “We engaged contractors and architects throughout our site’s development to collaborate on the tools and information they need to help them in their work in an intuitive and user-friendly way.”
The website is a part of the company’s focus on providing the tools and resources the design and construction community needs to meet today’s building challenges. They are pursuing collaborations to not only deliver products, but to provide solutions to challenges and help their customers bring visionary ideas to life.
“Our goal is to be a resource for our customers, to support them in the design process and offer solutions throughout the entire design and construction cycle,” added Kelly.
