Dan Montes de Oca is a well-rounded creative that leverages his eight years of experience leading teams on web projects. Utilizing a finely-tuned WordPress stack, he specializes in building websites that are optimized for web accessibility and user experience.

The primary objective for this project is to take the CEI-AZ.com website to its launch phase as soon as possible through a development ‘sprint’. This sprint will utilize a vast framework of pre-prepared, accessible templates to rebuild the layout of the site with clean-code and semantic markup.
Prior to this proposal, MdO Media has tested and implemented these tools on several projects, including our own new website. Specifically, these tools are the Bricks Builder, Automatic CSS Framework and ‘Frames’ templates. The licensing cost of these tools has been factored into the
The secondary objective of the website build is meeting or exceeding ADA Section 508 Compliance. Through an audit completed by MdO Media and additionaly recommended third party audit, the intent of this project is to reach a certified rating of ‘AA’ under the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines v2.1. This process is further detailed in this document.
By rebuilding the website to meet these standards and having the site WCAG certified, Consultant Engineering Inc’s website will feature an Accessibility Statement detailing all the efforts made to be ADA Section 508 Compliant. The new website will also proudly stand on an industry-leading, scalable framework that should last well into the decade. There are also substantial website performance improvements anticipated as well.
The target completion time for Project:
Four weeks from approval, pending content procurement.
Project starts and a weekly-standing progress report is scheduled with stakeholders. Preliminary deliverables (baseline-benchmark, sitemap, login details, content list) are sent.
The staging environment is configured for building, framework tools are integrated and all technical requirements for the project are met.
Design + Build Phase
Week 01 - Week 02
The new site is designed and built. Design pulls heavily from the work CEI Marketing has already accomplished as to not "reinvent the wheel" and to allow for maximum efficiency. Key new design features are incorporated and sections are built with clean, accessible and semantic code.
Week 02 - Week 03
Feedback and revision requests are collected from project stakeholders, then executed on a priority basis. This is also a collaborative time to integrate select concepts to finalize total functionality of the new website (such as carrying design elements over to CEI's career portal).
Pending content procurement, the new WCAG 2.1 AA compliant website for Consultant Engineering, Inc goes live. To-date project deliverables are sent to stakeholders, project report is compiled. Additional deliverables are scheduled and finalized.
In anticipation of this project, MdO Media has received a proposal from Accessible Web and is expecting another from Equalize Digital, two IAAP certified companies that specialize in auditing and certifying websites for WCAG 2.1 compliance. This phase is highly recommended.
Preliminary & Post-completion
A report package including:
1) Preliminary Website Statistics (core vitals)
2) Baseline Accessibility Score
A list of identified images, copy, posts and pages needing to be procured to complete the website. Also included are recommended procurement methods.
Site & Design Map
An outline of all current and needed pages of the website, as well as an overview of all the typography, components and design language to be used on the website.
A report package including:1) Post-completion Website Statistics
2) Post-completion Accessibility Score
Audit & Remediation
MdO Media will audit the newly built website for WCAG 2.1 AA compliance and complete, to the best of our ability, any remediations if necessary. These remediations are included in the Project Budget.
This deliverable includes an additional, third party accessibility audit of the completed website. They are capable of certifying the website and providing an Accessibility Statement.
We'll handle the migration of the new website to the production environment. Also provided is launch strategy detailing tips and guiding principles to maximize the new build. Analytics will be set up to monitor traffic.
Included in this project are four hours of live video-call training to go over any aspect of the new website. This agenda is fully customizable - from builder usage to post publication (and everything in-between).
After the live trainings, five training videos will be created detailing procedures and protocols for working on the new website. This helps your team maintain independance from website agencies, including ours.
