Orbit Heart of England is a 13,000 home Midlands-based social landlord. The association is a leading exponent for the introduction of low energy, low carbon housing that helps to reduce heating costs and improve comfort for its residents. To support the introduction of its sustainability campaign and provide key stakeholders with news and information about its innovative housing design initiatives a specialist micro-website was required.
It’s not often that you get a clean sheet brief from a client but that’s what Orbit Heart of England gave us when it asked us to come up with a new website to showcase its pioneering work in researching and applying low energy technology and systems in the social housing sector.
The website we created was Orbit Innovation – a radical departure from the organisation’s own corporate website, featuring bright, fresh animated graphics and interactive features to capture the attention.
We’ve developed the site to become a focal point for news and information about Orbit Heart of England’s ‘green’ activity, from press releases about ministerial visits to its schemes to case studies detailing work to retrofit Victorian housing stock to meet the latest low energy standards. It’s also given Orbit the perfect platform to demonstrate its capabilities to stakeholders and potential development partners.
