Century Stone (by ZClad) sell stone cladding, brick slips products and their associated installation accessories to the trade and consumers across the UK.

Their previous website - also built by IC360 - was due a refresh, so we were asked to bring it up-to-date, and to introduce some new features to the site.

Buy online with postcode driven delivery pricing

Whilst the products and samples pricing are the same throughout the UK, we had to build the tools that would enable regional variations in delivery pricing.

Smaller orders, such as samples, can be delivered by standard courier - but bulk orders of stone cladding have to be shipped on pallets, due to their size and weight.

We created a shopping basket that can provide the correct shipping cost, based on the quantity of items ordered, as well as the delivery Postcode.

Product Selector tool

As there are so many styles and colours available in the complete Century Stone catalogue, we designed and built a Product Selector to help customers find what they need.

The two filters available are "Colour" and "Style". By selecting as many of these as required, all the results are output straight away, which really helps people narrow down their search.

Website design and build

The website has been designed fully Responsive, with Desktops computers, handheld Tablets and Mobile phones firmly in mind, to enable access across as many devices as possible.

The CMS used is our go-to system of choice, ExpressionEngine. This makes developing the site in future as easy as it gets, plus Century Stone staff can update and edit content using a simple control panel.

To enable ecommerce functionality, the CartThrob module for ExpressionEngine provides the power and flexibility to get this ecommerce website off-the-ground - while still meaning it can grow in the future.

We are also providing the Website Hosting for the Century Stone website, which means we can administer the site from top-to-bottom.

 

More About Century Stone

Using natural stone cladding is an ideal way to make your internal or external walls stand out. The stone panels are manufactured in pre-formed shapes and sizes so they stack together neatly to look like a naturally handmade stone wall.

If you're looking for purely natural stone cladding for your building project, then check out the Stacked Stone website for more information (it's run by the same company as Century Stone).
