SWMBIA Constructs an Authoritative Website for the Building Industry

by Samuel Klusmeyer & Bryn Lisser - January 26, 2023
The Southwest Montana Building Industry Association (SWMBIA) is the voice of the home building and remodeling industry for Southwest Montana. They provide advocacy, networking, and education that lifts up the home building industry and helps ensure a high-quality of life statewide.

Krystal Feilder, SWMBIA’s president, is driven to help the building industry grow. Recently, her team and ours collaborated on their website redesign. Krystal wanted to move away from their old WordPress site to create a more reliable tool that required less upkeep.  

Before working with JTech, SWMBIA used a WordPress solution that became difficult to edit as plugins broke over time—hampering their push toward a stronger building industry. They also needed a site that refined their existing design language to match their evolved brand. 

Removing Plugins to Build a More Reliable Website

SWMBIA’s new site includes a custom-built member database & job board. Before working with our team, they relied on WordPress plugins that broke over time. 

Our development team created web app-like tools that don't need updates. Their new, custom solution will remove compatibility concerns for the foreseeable future. 

Every part of SWMBIA’s new website is also built on code that is accessible and reliable.

Like all businesses, SWMBIA has evolved throughout the years. JTech's designers helped them refine their brand until it matched the most recent evolution of their organization. 

JTech’s website design team refined SWMBIA’s existing design elements using bold, geometric elements. We chose to simplify their existing, more complex geometric elements to help SWMBIA's team more easily create a foundation of trust with Montana's builders. Now, SWMBIA’s website design is ready for the future. We're excited to see how their organization continues evolving into the future.
