ABC-FEATThe Associated Builders & Contractors – Southeastern Michigan Chapter (ABC SEMI) is unique because it also offers a fully accredited four year apprenticeship school through Construction Education Trust (CET). The goal of the project was to bring all of the information about the two organizations onto one website, where everything relating to CET is now under the “Education & Training” drop-down on the website. This allows potential students to see that CET is much more than just a school, and shows current and potential ABC members just how important they find educating the construction workforce is.

This website to date has the most information of any website R2 has ever built, but still tried to make all of the information clear and concise, without overusing flashy elements or graphics. We worked closely with the Executive Director to come up with a way for members of the construction industry and community a peak inside what ABC SEMI does and also a way for members to log-in to see events and a full database of the member listings. The website is fully responsive (phone and tablet viewable) and built on the WordPress platform. We provided training so that the Communications Administrator could update portions of the website, but R2 still works with ABC SEMI & CET for more in-depth updates and other technology solutions.
