Lambeth Council decided to move to Drupal in late 2013 and launched their two new flagship sites in January 2014 - www.lambeth.gov.uk and www.lovelambeth.gov.uk Built initially by an in-house contractor, Axis12 was selected to perform an audit of the site with a view to optimising it and providing a hosting platform and support structure that would allow the council to offer accessible services to their residents, and continue building on these services well into the future. The Drupal platform delivered offers both standalone and multi-site support, serving as a solid foundation for Council's main corporate site as well as a flexible base for various microsites.
We audited the site, identified and fixed quality and functional issues, and optimised it for performance. We then migrated the site to our virtual private cloud hosting solution situated in our tier 3 ISO27001 datacentre in Kent. Over the past 2 years we have continued to refactor and optimise the code, while supporting the site on a day to day basis.
