About this project

Founded in 1944 Edward Symmons is a firm of consultant surveyors and valuers in commercial property. It is also one of the UK's leading firms of plant and machinery valuers and auctioneers.

With eight regional offices around the UK Edward Symmonds required a web site as diverse as their skill set and client base but that offered a local perspective. The semi-static web site gives way in parts to integrated online tools allowing ES&P staff to continually update sections of the site themselves quickly and with the minimum of fuss.

An auction calendar application allows users to see instantly details of upcoming auctions. The integrated system means that when someone signs up for further information in regard to a specific market sector or activity the site will keep them up to date should an auction or sale later fit their criteria. In a similar fashion database-enabled tools manage the content contained in the commercial property, press releases and career opportunities sections.
