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!
We approached Phil at Pivotal to build our new website following a recommendation from an industry colleague. He instantly understood our brief and target audience and immediately put us at ease with our decision-making process as to which provider to choose. We were dealt with in a friendly and professional manner throughout and the team made the process very easy. The site was built in a very timely manner to a very high standard and we are delighted with the result! We would absolutely recommend Pivotal to anyone.

Phil and the tam at Pivotal Marketing have done an excellent job of building me a brand new website for my business. A family member recommended I use them and I'm really glad I did.
They were very professional throughout the process and the build took no time at all. I struggled with knowing what I wanted it to look like, but with guidance it really surpassed what I could have imagined.
Great service and fantastic job, worth every penny. Thank you! I'm just sorry it's taken me so long to leave a review.

We used Pivotal Marketing to spruce up our website, they gave us an amazing brand new one! The best thing I found was the way they understood exactly what we were after even though we didn't! The training provided after is a unique approach as it has enabled us to manage our content and website - so it's a continued improvement rather than a one off price off work. Great work by Phil, Jayna and Taylia, thank you from Sleigh & Story Accountants

We have been working with Phil and the team at Pivotal Marketing now for about seven years. During that time they have built three websites from scratch and subsequently helped update two of those websites.
We have recently gone through a process of updating our core website with a view to making it more vibrant and engaging while at the same time looking to encourage more enquiries from potential clients.
We are extremely pleased by the level of technical expertise within the team as well as their ability to grasp the commercial imperatives driving our website strategy. In addition, they are a pleasure to work with - which makes the process much more enjoyable.
What's more to say - I would wholeheartedly recommend Pivotal Marketing if you are looking to 'up' your online presence.

Pivotal did a fantastic job designing and now managing our new website over a year ago! We have been that busy responding to customer enquires and sales on our website I apologise it has taken so long to write this review! We have received great feedback from our customers about our website and it has really helped our business during the pandemic as we are getting plenty of enquires and orders from around the UK. The whole team at Pivotal have been fantastic to deal with and always get back to you if you have a question or problem. Thank you guys and look forward to working with you in the future.
