“We recognize that the commercial platform and end users in
the building industry are changing. With LEED and sustainable construction,
more people are trying to understand how building materials and the building
industry can help them achieve their business objectives,” said Sylvain
Garnaud, president of cement for Lafarge North America. “The new website
demonstrates Lafarge’s commitment to work with those changes and ensure that
our online resources are relevant and accessible.”
In an effort to improve usability, Lafarge implemented best
practices from across the Web including advanced navigation, RSS feeds,
podcasts and videos. Users, from government authorities and design
professionals to the average homeowner, can obtain educational information on
specific building materials and how each Lafarge product can optimize their
project. The site is also bilingual and will feature content in French to meet
the needs of our Canadian customers.
“The new Web site is a tangible example of Lafarge’s
consistent dedication to excellence,” said Diana Myers, communications manager,
Lafarge North America. “Every aspect of the website was designed to optimize
its online resources and maximize its utility to the public.”
Lafarge North America chose each aspect of the Web site
following an extensive research and analysis process. The development included
analysis of best practices for navigation, readability, providing information
and site map optimization. This process combined with state-of-the-art
technology and an updated framework display the company’s online resources in
an effective and efficient way.
