Symm website

Symm is one of the UK's premier building companies whose building and decorating history stretches back 200 years. The company was founded in Oxford by Daniel Evans in 1815 and has since constructed and restored many of England's greatest houses and institutions. They wanted to refresh the look and feel of their website and provide the best possible impression of Symm for visitors.


Symm needed a website which would act as a showcase for their high quality of craftsmanship and wide range of expertise. They wanted to simplify the site navigation and provide something more visual, making the most of their heritage whilst looking to the future.

The website needed to work alongside their latest brochure, with plenty of imagery and emphasis on their portfolio of completed projects. The navigation had to be intuitive so visitors could find what they were looking for simply and easily.

They needed a simple content management system (CMS) which could be used by those unfamiliar with more advanced IT features such as HTML. Administrators needed to be able to add content, update the news and images and add/remove pages when necessary. Finally, The site needed to be optimised to improve its rankings in search engines such as Google.

“We were impressed by the speed with which Alberon learned about our company and developed this into a website that exceeded our expectations and which we are able to easily control in house.”
