Project Summary

Light House was retained by Metro Vancouver to review, plan and update their award winning education and outreach program. This work included an alignment of the program with the new management plans (solid waste, water and liquid waste) as well as the sustainable region initiative. The strategy also included a comprehensive review of the website and the product directory database with the development of new content, format and functionality. Light House facilitated two focus groups of website users (Group 1: designers/researchers and Group 2: builders) to gain a deeper understanding of website functionality, usability and fitness for purpose.
