Ryan Companies

Building a showcase site with performance, functionality, and users at its heart.


The challenge

Bring our client’s updated brand online and demonstrate their world class expertise

The sales teams needed a compelling destination for prospective clients that would tell Ryan Companies’ story. In addition, they needed to replace their outdated technology platform with a modern, scalable platform that was easy to update.

What we did

  • Information gathering on business objectives and user requirements to inform the recommendation for a new site platform
  • Led thoughtful, pointed team discussions to develop core requirements that connected to true business objectives 
  • Recommended and implemented Drupal 8 on Pantheon because it is easy to maintain and easy to update as new versions become available 
  • Drupal 8’s twig support combined with Foundation ensured smooth transitions from phone to tablet to desktop 
  • Seamlessly collaborated with multiple partners on budgets, creative, and strategy throughout the project
  • Translated the new brand into the digital space while leveraging Drupal’s functionality, including content and data modeling 
  • Engaged back-end engineering to ensure that the high resolution architectural and construction photography properly rendered across all display breakpoints


Focused content makes the site easy to use and manage. Seamless implementation produced a site that’s performant and simple to maintain. And, the project wrapped up both on time and on budget.
