The website was built in Drupal using an Agile Development Methodology.
Cool Block was an integral part of the development team to make decisions during the project. The rapid development was completed in six weeks by five developers, which met the community pilot dates.
A large challenge with the Coolblock website was with the program itself. The program features 112 actions in 8 topic areas and the related content is substantial. Making that work on a mobile screens can be daunting. We employed accordions within the action plans to house the activities and data input fields. Due to the complexity of calculating carbon saving the developers had their hands full.
The CP team overcame several technical hurdles and time tables to deliver the project and surpass the client’s expectations.
