GAI is a site for sore eyes

Published:  08 November, 2013

The Guild of Architectural Ironmongers (GAI) has launched a new website that represents a portal into the GAI organisation and offers members valuable, technical, legislative, legal and educational information at the click of a button.

All the practical information is there with the emphasis on ease of use and minimum click throughs to reach the section needed. The site also features a section for the Institute of Architectural Ironmongers, the individual membership section of the organisation which runs a thriving regional network of meetings, training and social events.

The site has also been given a fresh new look with easy-to-navigate sections and in overhauling the website, the GAI has made a point of reference for its members.

Users can find their nearest ironmonger using a-Locator function. Members can access the GAI’s wealth of technical information and expertise with FAQs, technical bulletins, technical features and helpline service.

Gary Amer, GAI chief executive said: “We have spent some time on developing our new site. This is our shop window and an important point of reference for our members’. We’ve complimented this by formalising our e-bulletin to members as well which will have links to the website. Overall I believe the membership and other users will have a far friendlier and accessible experience.”
