  • CMS Implementation

The Northboro R&D Center is one of Saint-Gobain's largest industrial research laboratories.

Saint-Gobain Northboro R&D Center (NRDC) is a multidisciplinary industrial research center within the larger Saint-Gobain brand. NRDC develops new ceramic and polymer products, processes and solutions for a wide range of industries. Over the last decade, NRDC has grown to over 400 employees in the greater Boston area, and partnered with Wakefly to create a brand new site to bring NRDC’s presence to the web.

The site was built in Drupal as it was joining the other Saint-Gobain network of sites and needed to be on the same platform. Wakefly leveraged the existing code of a sister Saint-Gobain site in order to keep the build of this simple, content driven site within a relatively low budget. Design changes and functionality enhancements distinguished this new site from its predecessor and made it applicable to the NRDC team.

Key Features:

  • Tagged News items to keep new and fresh content visible on relevant pages
  • Flexible sidebar allows content editors to easily customize additional resources on every page
  • Image forward design to complement a more technical site.
