What is Concrete5 CMS?

Concrete5 is a Content Management System (CMS) for websites which allows you to easily and quickly make updates to your website yourself.   

With Concrete5 you'll have full control of your website content updates as you won't need us, a programmer or HTML coding knowledge to do them saving you valuable budget! 

We've been building websites for over 20 years now so we've spent a lot of time using different content management systems. That's why we feel sure in saying we think Concrete5 is the best CMS on the market! Consistently rated as a top 10 CMS and as far as ‘off the shelf’ CMS go Concrete5 is virtually unlimited in functionality giving you a huge amount of control over your website.

Feature packed but efficient and easy to use the thing we love most is the easy "in-context" (on the page) editing which allows you to edit your website pages as you view them in your browser.  Plus the admin tools are very intuitive for non-technical users so we find a basic user guide and brief introduction to Concrete5 is all that is normally needed. 

What do websites built with Concrete5 offer?

Easy Editing

When you edit your Concrete 5 website, nearly everything you do will be done on the page as you view the website. Plus with drag and drop content, intuitive WYSIWYG editing and point and click layout options all your editing is simple, quick and effective!

Mobile Ready

Concrete 5 uses PHP7, supports HTML5 and CSS enabling mobile ready websites as standard with responsive images etc.  Your content will automatically resize for the device being used across desktops, laptops, tablets and phones.

Open Source and Free

Concrete 5 is a free open source CMS, which not only means there are no license costs but also that there's a highly proficient programmer community so you're not tied to us or indeed any other supplier for future design changes, new functionality requirements or add-ons to your website.

SEO Tools for Ranking

Concrete 5 is great for SEO. With in-built SEO tools for editing your meta tags it's easy to optimise your wesbite for maximum visibility in search results. There are also numerous SEO add-ons to take things further if required.

What have we done with Concrete5?

We have used Concrete5 extensively for all types of projects.  We have designed and built Concrete5  websites for a wide range of clients ranging from start-ups to multi-national organisations.

i-4busines web design newbury berkshire

i-4business Concrete 5 website

We built the originali-4business website nearly 5 years ago using the Concrete 5 Content Management System (CMS). This meant that having completed a web audit on that site we were able to update it rather than build a new website from scratch, saving them a significant budget outlay and protecting their original investment.

The new website design included a full content restructure, copywriting of all content, SEO and the creation of bespoke graphics and icons. The website also has a chat facility and blog.

Since launch additional work has been completed including the design and build of dedicated landing pages to support lead generation marketing activity we undertake in our role as an outsourced marketing resource for the business. We also review SEO performance and add new content each month.

Fernhay Web Design Newbury Berkshire

Fernhay Concrete 5 Website

Fernhay gave us an even tighter deadline of just 2 weeks for a new website design and build to support the launch of their new product range. 

Having worked with Fernhay over the previous 6 months on various marketing projects we felt we had a good understanding of this web requirement so we accepted the challenge!

After a busy final weekend ahead of the website launch which also coincided with the launch of their product we delivered this fantastic new website with a full  Concrete 5 Content Management System (CMS).

We continue to provide website support in our role as an outsourced marketing resource to the business.

Weber St-Gobain Web Design Newbury Berkshire

Weber-Saint Gobain Website

Another tight deadline website project, this time from Weber-Saint Gobain who needed a microsite design and build for their new retail brand, TILEit to support the UK product launch into Homebase/Bunnings. 

In a 6 week timeframe we delivered this fantastic site with Concrete 5 Content Management System (CMS)fully adhering to corporate branding and corporate guidelines. We also completed the design and layout of all product datasheets in time for the launch as well!  Since then we've added various additional functionality such as  a Product Selector tool and blog.

Recently we successfully completed a site rebuild in Wordpress to adhere to parent company, Saint Gobain's new security guidelines.
