Access Community Housing

RJ New Designs is proud to have built a brand new, fully customised and responsive WordPress website for the Access Community Housing Company, who are very happy with the end result.

“When Access Community Housing decided it was time to improve our website, we sent our brief to RJ New Designs based on a recommendation,” said Jim Reeve, Asset Manager at Access Community Housing.

“The response provided by RJ New Designs came in the form of a comprehensive written proposal that clearly demonstrated their understanding of our brief and requirements. This was an impressive start to the project and it gave us the confidence to engage the services of RJ New Designs to carry out the work.”

“The high level of professionalism remained throughout the project, but more importantly the RJ New Designs team guided us through every step and provided a well written plan that included content guidelines, a photo shot list and recommendations for the site navigation and user experience.”

“The design offered was impressive and had been well thought through in terms of the visual impact, site navigation, usability and the built-in ability to adapt to viewing on computers and mobile devices. RJ New Designs made the process of adjusting the design to what we wanted very easy and we quickly arrived at a design that we believe provides the professional and friendly look and feel we were seeking. In addition to the design we also made use of the copywriting service offered by RJ New Designs. This made a big difference to the quality and professionalism of our new website.”

“The project ran smoothly from start to finish and was completed considerably faster than we had anticipated. We were very impressed with Julie and Richard’s approach and the quality of their work, and we are very happy with the website they produced for us.”

Access Community Housing Company (ACHC) is a not-for-profit company which provides social housing for individuals and families living across Far North Queensland. Funded by the Department of Housing and Public Works (DHPW) and registered under the National Registration Scheme as a Tier 2 provider, ACHC provides assistance to those individuals, seniors and families who are already on the DHPW register of need.

When ACHC approached RJ New Designs about their web project, they already had a site, but they identified a few ‘issues’ they weren’t happy with.  Namely it was “tired and outdated in appearance, lacked the required functionality for clients and customers, offered poor user experience and had no Content Management System”.

The primary purpose when building the new site was to address all of the above, whilst also expanding site content and navigation to make the ACHC website a useful communication tool, providing information on the organisation and promoting its services.

There were several stipulated features and requirements for the new site, including but not limited to: containing a Content Management System, enabling easy internal updates; easy and intuitive navigation; ability to upload and download (and date order) PDF and other documents; embedded Google map and contact forms; editable events calendar; contain Google Analytics and also be responsive to desktop and mobile devices.

RJ New Designs addressed all of these criteria and requirements when they created a fully customised and responsive WordPress site.  The new Access Community Housing Company website is now live.

RJ New Designs services provided in conjunction with this project include, but are not limited to: project management, copy writing, website design, customised coding and development of a fully responsive WordPress website, including integration with an editable events calendar and appropriate social media options.

We are very happy with the new site, which has delivered on the project brief and achieved all its expectations and requirements.

“Julie's ability write content and create an overall "feel" for our sites was amazing, she has a real gift with words. Richard’s laid back ‘can do’ attitude and attention to detail of imagery and functionality makes RJ New Designs the ‘go to’ company for any business looking to upgrade or create a web presence.”
