Scheck Unveils Refreshed Website

WebsiteKeeping an improved, more fluid user experience in mind, we are proud to reveal the refreshed  As Scheck continues to lead in progressive approaches to industrial construction, we felt it necessary to reflect this same progress on our outward-facing facets, including the website.

“In addition to showcasing our capabilities, a primary goal of the redesign was to better represent the face of Scheck Industries – our employees,” Randy Peach, CEO, explains. “Adding profiles of our employees and spotlighting their community involvement helps our clients and partners understand the caliber of people they are working with and their strong desire to give back to the company and their communities.”

Website traffic was first analyzed to better understand how visitors navigate the site and what they are most interested in. As a result, navigation is simpler and users can more quickly find the information they need. 

“The Scheck website is an extension of the relationships which define us,” Website Committee Member and Project Support Administrator, Lisa Johnson explains.  “We now have a more client-focused, employee-reflective approach to our website. Clients can understand who we are, and who they will be working with on any given project.  Without a doubt, all of the committee members felt this was a vital component.”

Next to its people, Scheck is proudest of the nationally-recognized safety reputation it has earned, along with the innovative, customized approach to project management. Be sure to visit the new Safety section, which provides a better showcase for the safety awards Scheck has earned. There, you can also read more about how Scheck has taken safety to state-of-the-art status with its highly effective and innovative J.A.W.S.™ program. The Why Scheck section of the site shares insight into the competitive advantages of working with Scheck and its employees.    Here you will also find information on how ScheckTRAC™ system, a best-in-class cost accounting and project controls system, is unprecedented.
