IHBC’s web site goes ‘Mobile friendly’

The IHBC has just launched a new ‘mobile-friendly’ development of its celebrated website, making it more accessible to those using mobile technology such as smart phones and iPads, as well as offering exciting new links to less familiar pages.


IHBC President Trefor Thorpe said: ‘The IHBC represents and appeals to the ‘hands-on’ building conservationist, and while they work with the built heritage and traditional crafts they also need up-to-the-minute technology to keep themselves up to speed.  The creation of a touch-screen friendly website is just the latest innovation in our progressive, dynamic organisation and I’m pleased to be part of it – I’m so glad I’ve got an iPad on my Christmas wish list!’


IHBC Director Sean O’Reilly said: ‘ This upgrading represents a substantial commitment by our IT team over many months.  They have produced a dynamic new interface for users, one that anyone will recognise from the old site, but also one that is much easier to navigate for anyone using touch screen and similar devices.’


‘Improvements to any well-loved and familiar site will of course create some unfamiliar features and pathways. But the fun design approach and stimulating visuals – just try the new publications page – mean that our website can feel very new while still keeping the same fundamentals strengths.  Just like good conservation, when you think of it.’
