Forestry Commission Scotland Website Development and Implementation

Forestry Commission Scotland

Forestry Commission Scotland (FCS) wanted to improve their users experience and provide relevant and regionally focused content. The aim was to create a website which was separate to the UK wide website already available with a fresh design.

FCS invited several companies within the Public Sector framework to tender for the project which resulted in Pulsion Technology being awarded the contract. A tailored solution utilising the Joomla! content management system, with a MySQL database and custom PHP components.

Pulsion worked closely with FCS to fully understand both the technical and branding requirements. A key deliverable of the project was to provide site administration training to FCS publishing staff. The result is a flexible web platform with custom features and a flexible publishing system. The website is more structured, usable, and accessible for the FCS’s end users. The platform is future proofed too – as FCS grows and needs change, the system is flexible enough to change it.

The new site delivered:

  • New and modern website with flexible development options
  • Custom features to integrate into their Joomla content management system and meet FCS’s specific requirements
  • A clear structure, helpful search facility and user friendly navigation options
  • Meets current and emerging business and end user needs
  • Maximise site usability, meet accessibility standards and FCS brand guidelines
  • Cater for mobile users by building a website with a responsive design that alters depending on the size of the user’s screen
