SERVICES: WordPress website design and development

FDS Consult

The FDS group provide consultancy on fire safety for some of the largest development projects in the UK.  

ExtraDigital were asked to rebrand their website fdsconsult.com to better showcase the work they do and the type of projects they work on. The previous site was looking dated and had a high bounce rate. It was built on Joomla, an increasingly outdated CMS that was not easy to use and lacked latest SEO and responsive features.


The company had experience of WordPress and were happy to move to this platform. ExtraDigital have extensive experience in developing business level WordPress websites with custom modules to provide  the extra functionality needed.

The following process was used:

  • Persona based research and analysis of target audiences
  • Revised responsive design, with designs for homepage and other key areas of the website
  • Migration of content from Joomla to WordPress
  • Optimising content for SEO
  • Implementing 301 redirect

Design considerations

When producing the design the following were considered:

  • ensure all call to actions were clearly visible
  • encourage signup to webinars
  • easy to find and intuitive case studies section
  • showcasing the size, scale and quality of the work done


The new website more than lived up to expectations. The new design contributed to a 15% reduction in bounce rate and target signups were more than achieved. 

The new site benefitted SEO with traffic to the website nearly doubling.
