Our work on the Building Trades of Alberta website led to a recommendation of our web design services when IUPAT Local 177 needed a new website. We met with the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades Local 177 leadership team on several occasions to discuss the Local's online needs and possible solutions.
Chinook Multimedia came highly recommended as an Edmonton web design firm. We met with Bob Hesketh to discuss our needs and to get some ideas on how to proceed. Bob then worked with his programmers and designers to come up with a plan and attractive, modern web design that respected our budget.
We were very impressed with Bob’s knowledge and organizational skills and felt well cared for during the development process as Bob met with us, emailed, or phoned to promptly respond to any questions we had. We appreciated his patience and understanding in dealing with us during some of the difficult challenges we faced. We are very happy with our new website and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Chinook Multimedia if you are looking for web development services.

The development project faced some difficult issues that forced delays. On two separate occasions, drivers of motor vehicles crashed into the Local 177 headquarters, which meant website development had to go to the backburner. More tragically, Local 177's longtime Business Manager and inspirational leader, John Tackaberry passed in October 2014. We really enjoyed meeting and working with John and can understand how deeply he has been missed.
The new design effectively brands the website with the bold colours of the union logo. We particularly liked the black-and-white photo that highlights the proud history of the Local in a homepage slideshow that also features photos of some of the Local's recognizable large scale industrial, civic, and construction projects.
The responsive website provides contract, health and welfare, and pension information for union members, as well as online application forms. Local 177's Edmonton headquarters houses an impressive training facility and the Local can feature training course and events using the website's event management system.
Our thanks to all of the members of the Local's leadership team who envisioned this project.
The website uses the Joomla! content management system. We host and support the new website.
