Project Description:
A website is required for a new business, Coastal Property Solution (CPS), based in Queensland, Australia. The CPS website should feature clean, elegant design: black/grey text on white, with a simple sans serif body font (Verdana, Helvetica etc). Images should be showcased throughout. The web banner (featuring CPS logo - supplied) and menu bar is to remain visible on every page. The footer should include full contact details plus social media links.

ABOUT CPS:

With 30+ years experience producing top-quality homes, CPS promises to take the uncertainty out of building your new home or investment property. Strong relationships with a panel of different local designers and builders allows us to facilitate your project at the highest level through a tender process that guarantees on-time and on-budget delivery. As your project partner, we will work with you and for you every step of the way, from concept to completion, to ensure you receive the right design team and builder for your project. Whether you’re in the market for your first home, a new home for your family or an investment property, we have a team of experts on hand ready to realise your dream property.

AIMS OF THE WEBSITE:

The primary objective of the CPS website is to hook potential clients with beautiful imagery (supplied) and user-friendly text (supplied) and prompt them to make direct contact with CPS - ideally by phone, but with email/text/Facebook as additional means of contact. With this in mind, it is proposed that a ‘contact us’ platform be built into all pages (incorporate into a sidebar perhaps?) as well as a more substantial ‘Contact Us’ page.

TARGET AUDIENCE:

Varied, with particular interest from young professionals, couples, first-home buyers, families, and property investors. Their level of experience using the internet is varied but they are mostly competent internet users. They value sophistication, intelligence and clean design.

CONTENT:

1. Homepage
A beautiful, billboard image (full-screen), perhaps with just a single sentence introduction to CPS alongside the menu bar.

2. About Us
The About Us page will feature a single image and standard text introduction. In-text links to Services, FAQs, Gallery and Contact Us will be included to aid easy navigation. In the coming months, a video introduction will be added to this page so video embedding capabilities are required.

3. Services
The Services page will feature a single image and standard text and a direct call to action via a Contact Us platform.

4. FAQs
Approx 6-10 frequently asked questions on the FAQ page. It’s likely that some answers will be more than a paragraph, so it’s desirable to list the questions first without showing the answers directly under them to make the content more scannable. Anchor links (to connect the individual questions to the corresponding answer at the end of the page), or hidden answers (that appear immediately below the question when a visitor clicks on one) are ideal.

5. Gallery
At the time of launching the site, there will be very little content on the Gallery page and perhaps an ‘under construction’ placeholder is appropriate. The site will eventually feature a number of galleries of individual homes, and a text introduction is needed for each gallery (eg. http://www.costaconstructions.com.au/index.php/gallery). It is preferred that the viewing window opens on top of the current Gallery page rather than taking the user to another page.

6. Contact Us
Very important: phone is the preferred method of contact, so the phone number should be central. In addition, there should be an online ‘Contact Us’ form with the following fields:

Full Name
Contact Number
Email Address
Preferred method of contact (select Phone or Email)
If a user selects Phone, it would be great if they’re then prompted to nominate an appropriate time of day for CPS to call.
