Client Brief:

Lawson Thompson are the top student accommodation lettings company in St Andrews.

The client was looking for a new website that could show their rental properties to students at the time students were looking for accommodation for the academic year. This was over a very short time so the site had to be able to handle a lot of traffic in just a few hours as well as load fast and be very mobile friendly.

They wanted to 100% manage the site themselves and easily be able to add properties, mark them as let, unavailable, and to let. Also add and update pages and new content with easy.

Initially they had a property sales area on the site but they have now focussed completely on student lettings.

The design was created by the client and we advised in some aspects of the design that needed work to be successful on a website.

During the sites development the client moved into their amazing new premises and we wanted to show this off with the new website.

We have really enjoyed working with Alan in building our new website. His attentiveness and service from start to finish has been first class.

We originally approached Alan with an ambitious spec for a new website - one that required a lot of custom coding. We wanted something completely bespoke. It was here Alan and his team really excelled, producing exactly what we wanted, and even enhancing the original specification in various places with their helpful ideas, advice and feedback. All in plain English rather than 'computer speak'!

Alan is always quick to respond to emails, and takes pride in going that extra mile for his clients. We are thrilled with our new website and look forward to working with Alpha Tango for many years to come!
