Ditnybyggeri.dk is an independent knowledge portal with the purpose of giving Danish settlers specific inspiration and knowledge to handle their own construction project.
Ditnybyggeri.dk is a construction portal, the purpose of which is to share knowledge about personal construction projects through articles, forums, and other resources. The target audience is people who have personal construction projects. They need some information to execute their projects themselves or to hire a subcontractor but be able to validate and evaluate the job that's being done.
The platform is a web catalog of instructions for construction projects. The catalog contains 12 phases, such as construction techniques, selection of building materials, as well as insurance budget and economy, build license, registration, and bid invitation. Users can also email their questions to the support team and discuss them using the forum. The website's content should be managed through a popular .NET CMS system: UmbracoCMS.
One of the requirements of the client was to use Umbraco as a CMS system. Another requirement is to provide the performance and responsiveness of a classic Single Page Application. Angular Framework was chosen as a client-side SPA framework. The main challenge was to integrate the Umbraco and Angular Framework. Umbraco was used as a headless CMS and API for Angular application. Angular Server Side Rendering was enabled to provide the best SEO results.
Multiple catalogs have been uploaded in the system when the project has been developed and deployed. Initial catalogs helped build the community around the portal, and the portal became extremely popular in the Danish community as the source of detailed guidance in construction projects.
