The Garvey Center touts its location as downtown Wichita’s premiere address. It contains over 300,000 square feet of Class A office space including Wichita’s tallest apartment building – 250 Douglas Place. This iconic address is also the second tallest in the entire state of Kansas.
Garvey Center and 250 Douglas Place are easily some of the most recognizable buildings in Wichita so they needed a website that was equally impressive. We were approached by Garvey Center to bring their website into the 21st century. Prior to our work, the old site was not mobile responsive and looked a bit outdated. Our goal was to modernize and refresh the website to reflect the Garvey Center’s interesting lines and highlight its amenities.
A website must work well on all browsers and mobile devices. Google actually gives you a slap on the wrist if your site doesn’t meet its responsive requirements. The Garvey Center site is accessible on all devices including desktop computers, tablets, and smartphones.
We made adjustments to the layout and overall look of the site while staying true to their branding. Not only is the site pleasing to the eye, but it’s also a breeze to navigate so potential tenants and guests can easily find photos of the venue, a list of amenities, available suites, contact information, and more.
The Garvey Center was originally built in static HTML, but we moved the site over to WordPress to make it easier to maintain. WordPress also improves search engine optimization by adding meta tag keywords, description, and title for each page. All WordPress sites are scalable, meaning the site can easily grow with the business.
