With their Directors having a combined experience of over 45 years under their belts, Leeds based LOROC Architects have garnered a reputation for being a vibrant, focused and forward-thinking practice, supporting their clients at every step of the design, planning and construction process.
Armed with an impressive multi-sector portfolio that spans Office and Industrial, Leisure and Retail, Luxury Housing and Health and Community sectors, LOROC Architects are proud to offer a truly tailor-made, adaptable and bespoke service to each and every client.
The objective of a website isn’t always high rankings in the results of search engines like Google. Therefore, comprehensive Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) and website content that demonstrates the qualities of E-A-T (Expertise, Authoritativeness and Trustworthiness) that Google favours aren’t always required.
This was the case for LOROC Architects, who envisioned a sleek and stylish showcase of their project portfolio for their website. At Pivotal Marketing, we were pleased to make LOROC Architect’s vision for their website a reality.
Website Features Provided:
We maximised the striking curved shape of the letters in LOROC’s logo by incorporating similar aspects of the oblong shape into the design of their portfolio and into the way LOROC Architect’s clients’ logos are displayed.
To provide the website with a cleaner look, we used a slide-out menu rather than a conventional, static navigation bar.
The greyed-out shades used on the logos of LOROC Architect’s clients helped maintain a minimalist feel to the website. The logos light up in the appropriate colours when hovered over.
The major benefit of WordPress is that plug-ins can be added to boost the functionality of the website as apps do on a smartphone. We utilised the Responsive Lightbox and Gallery plug-in to enable LOROC Architect’s website visitors to seamlessly enlarge images in the company’s project galleries to really appreciate the portfolio.
User Experience (UX) is a vital factor in determining a good website from a great one. We were sure to add a helpful filter system to make browsing through LOROC Architect’s projects as smooth, swift and simple as possible for website visitors.
The Contact Form 7 plug-in helped us build a quick and easy contact form, which has curved corners to reflect the website’s design, keeping it consistent and professional.
It goes without saying that a website should be secure. We used reliable security plug-ins to shield the website from hacking, spam and viruses and installed an SSL certificate, providing a padlock icon next to the website’s URL giving LOROC Architect’s website visitors the confidence that the site is safe to browse.
To ensure the website is compliant with all the necessary legislation, we installed a high-standard GDPR Cookie Consent Banner plug-in and uploaded Cookie and Privacy Policies.
We always say: “If you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it!” We set up Google Tag Manager and Google Analytics on the website so LOROC Architects can track their website progress and performance going forward.
We offered LOROC Architect staff a handover WordPress website training session so they can manage the website content easily on their own, without needing any complex coding knowledge!
Myself and my co-director Aimee at Ultra Accountancy recently engaged Pivotal Marketing to redesign our website to achieve a more professional look and better useability.
We are really pleased with the final result! The team at Pivotal really got to understand our business and what we are about, whilst they listened to our requirements they also made some great suggestions to further improve the site.
They have also provided a blogging workshop so we are now able to keep our clients up to date with useful tips and information and will we be using them further in this area in future.
We wouldn't hesitate to recommend the team at Pivotal Marketing Ltd!

Phil and his team built a great website for our new software product. They gave us fantastic branding ideas, built the site with a clear flow through it and then went the extra mile by helping us design the look and feel of the software itself. Highly recommended!

Jayna provided me with very comprehensive and useful website training in order for me to update the company website (Highbury Homes).

From my first contact with Pivotal (with Phil Hatfield) throughout every dealing I've had with them they have been totally professional and cooperative, as well as extremely supportive and reliable. Jayna has been great at understanding what we've been trying to get across in our new website and has made it feel like a really collaborative experience. Could not recommend more highly.

We are repeat customers of Phil and his team. Honestly I would never go elsewhere. They respond pretty quick, they UNDERSTAND your brief SO well and deliver your vision better than you had dared to think possible and nothing is ever too much trouble for them. Customers for life

As a Director of Imagineer Development UK CIC, we have been working alongside Pivotal to redevelop and amalgamate our websites into a more efficient and accessible platform for our stakeholders. The work has been complex- involving the development of a membership area, directories, e-commerce and the integration of a learning management system for e-learning. Phil, Jayna and Taylia are very friendly, approachable and highly skilled at what they do. They have responded to all of our requests and presented solutions as we have needed them. I would not hesitate to recommend their services.

I have worked with Pivotal Marketing Ltd for several years both on my account and that of many clients. They design, develop and maintain my website, report on my SEO rankings, help me with digital marketing including blog writing and have frankly, never let me down. They are a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend them to everyone.
