Case Study


Innov8 Construction Group Inc. is a local construction company that specializes in premium interior finishing, custom carpentry and millwork, and renovations. Based out of Sidney, BC, the group has completed over 800,000 square feet of finishing here on Vancouver Island since 2018. Innov8 has separated themselves from the competition with quality craftsmanship, an efficient workflow, strong communications, and fair prices. The only area falling short was their online presence.

The Innov8 team approached Caorda to help with their website. They had already hired a website development firm to build a site using a WordPress theme, but there was little progress after many months. Eventually, Innov8 brought their stalled project to Caorda in hopes it could be rescued.  


The Challenge

When Innov8 handed over their stalled website project to the Caorda team, they had a lofty goal of launching within just one week. Rebuilding and replacing the existing Squarespace website needed to happen and there was no time to spare.

Aside from the time crunch, Innov8’s website was lacking in a few key areas that needed to be addressed in the new build.  Innov8’s current site had no area for previous projects, which is a very important aspect of the digital presence for any company in the construction and trades industry. In addition, the site had some technical shortcomings that were impacting both their organic search rankings and mobile user experience. Innov8’s website was in need of professional attention.


The Solution

The Caorda development and design team got to work to complete a brand new and professional website within one week’s time using our unique framework approach with WordPress. The WordPress framework provided an initial structure that was customized to Innov8’s branding and design preferences, along with their unique content and professional photography. With the new design, an emphasis was placed on displaying Innov8’s eye-catching construction projects and talented team.

Innov8’s website was then handed to Caorda’s SEO specialists, who put best practices in place that will help the company perform better in organic search results. High quality keywords and phrases were added carefully throughout the site, so now finding Innov8 online is easier than ever.

Caorda built a fresh WordPress design for Innov8’s site within just one week. The result is not only aesthetically pleasing, but fully functional and intentionally organized. Now Innov8 now has a site they’re proud of, reflecting the high quality of their own projects.

We’re thrilled we were able to save Innov8’s website project within such a short timeline, helping to polish their digital presence and showcase the quality of their work. We look forward to working together again in the future!
