Activa Group is a land development company located in the Kitchener Waterloo region of Ontario. The original site at the time had no ability for the client to make any content updates. So we developed a new site within Drupal.

The main driving force behind the new site is the interactive map. This map allows users to identify the exact location of each of Activa’s communities. Not only does the map display the location but it will also display additional community information such as Name and logo, directions, contact numbers and emails and the type of community it is.

In addition to the map there is also areas for each community. Within these areas there are constant news updates and the user is able to subscribe to either just an individual community or to all community updates.

This site was launched in 2013.

Launch Website

Home Page

Most of the home page is made up of teasers and feeds from other areas of the site. The Community feed in the main area of the site pulls teasers for the three most recent community updates while the second sidebar area displays random testimonial teasers.

As current career opportunities are added to the “Team” section of the site they also appear as teasers in the footer.

Interactive Map

This is where users can come and view all the locations of each community. The map has filters that allow you to narrow your search results.

When a community is clicked additional information is displayed including name, logo, directions, contact details, community type, status etc. This is all dynamically populated from other areas of the site.

Neighbourhood Articles Listing

Displays logos and teasers to each community article. All communities are displayed by default but you can also use the sub navigation to show articles for a specific community only.

Full Neighbourhood Article

Full community article giving all the necessary information to the user. It also dynamically pulls in the logos of builders that have been assigned to the particular community so you can identify who is building there. Each builder listed is linked to their own website.
