Designing inspiration for BDP international architectural practice

BDP is an international practice bringing together architects, designers, engineers and urbanists to create incredible and inspirational places around the world. Working in interdisciplinary teams, and leveraging a wealth of experience and expertise, BDP produces integrated, holistic and sustainable solutions.

A bold new site for a global brand

To achieve their business goals, the company needed an online experience that matched their culture, and their output. BDP is a firm that values creativity, inspiration, collaboration and support, so any digital solution needed to reflect this. Much like the spaces BDP creates, the website would need to be future proof, and as befits a truly global company; multi-lingual.

With tight delivery deadlines, workshops were required to keep the focus on delivering an experience that would meet BDP’s expectations. Collaboration and an agile development approach allowed Episerver partner Netcel to push the boundaries and build a bold, engaging and responsive site that truly represents the BDP brand.

Function and sophistication

Netcel implemented Episerver Digital Experience Cloud to create a website that’s not only visually stunning, but technically sophisticated.

One particular highlight of the website is a feature that allows users to create a ‘collection’ of favorite pages - from case studies to news stories and more - and share these with colleagues or clients via an automatically generated URL.

Netcel took advantage of a number of key Episerver features to create a multi-lingual website.

An award-winning experience

Within weeks of the new site going live, BDP began to see some impressive results:

  • There was a 10% increase in engagement in the first few weeks
  • The fully responsive nature of the site saw mobile visits increase by over 50% YOY
  • The website won Best Use of Technology at the Archiboo Web Awards 2016

“We gave Netcel an incredibly tight deadline, and a wide-ranging brief. We were delighted with both the speed and quality of their work. The new site truly represents our global brand and can be accessed on numerous devices.”
