Drupal website development

Drupal is a popular open-source CMS used by some of the world's most high-profile websites. For over 15 years, our experienced team has developed award-winning websites for many world-renowned clients.

  • Drupal handles high volumes of traffic and large amounts of content with ease.
  • Drupal has world-class security features, so you can handle sensitive data if needed.
  • Drupal is incredibly flexible. Its open architecture and vast library of modules means we can achieve your vision for your website.

Technical Architecture and Infrastructure

Our team have a great deal of experience in designing modern, cloud-based architecture specifically for high-performance Drupal sites that serve millions of users every week.

We have one of the most experienced Drupal development teams in the country, having built many award-winning websites for some of the UK’s leading cultural institutions, museums, non-profits and universities. We're a regular contributor to the Drupal open-source project and maintain a number of core modules.

Component-based UX Design

Our experienced user experience teams create design systems that provide excellent levels of flexibility within Drupal, allowing our clients to create infinite numbers of content types, as opposed to a limited set of restrictive templates.

Modular page build system

We have developed a page editing experience that's flexible and configurable. Multiple modules can be combined together by your website editors to create versatile and visually stunning digital experiences. Your website will benefit from our long-term investment in developing our site kit, giving you a vast amount of functionality ‘out of the box’ that saves money and time.

Content Strategy and Migration

We have a great deal of experience in migrating clients to Drupal from their legacy CMS systems. We have a tried and tested approach to large-scale content strategies and migration. We can work with you to audit, triage and automatically migrate content in days not months.

Advanced workflow and governance

Many of our clients are responsible for managing very large digital estates. They need efficient and effective workflow tools to ensure the accuracy and quality of their published content. We work with our clients to understand how they currently work and identify opportunities where efficiencies can be gained through automation.


Drupal’s open, API-based architecture makes it an ideal solution when you need to integrate with other systems. We have experience integrating with a wide range of CRM systems, such as MS Dynamics, Salesforce and Intuit/Mailchimp. We have also integrated ticketing platforms such as Tessitura and Spektrix. For our higher education clients, we integrate with a variety of specialist systems for course information, such as SITS. In the museum sector, we’ve worked on integrating some of the largest digitised collections in the world for clients such as The Science Museum Group and the British Museum.

Media handling

Drupal's media handling is modern and adaptable. Assets can be uploaded once and served dynamically, automatically resized for a multitude of devices and screen sizes. This saves your team time and allows a more efficient use of server resources, good for the environment and keeping costs down.

Training and documentation

We provide tailored Drupal CMS training delivered on-site or online, to get your team up to speed. This is supported with in-context help available within the CMS itself. The result is a website you control and can continue to evolve.

Ongoing support

We maintain, enhance and optimise your site post-launch. This covers security patching, proactive maintenance and ongoing optimisations based on performance monitoring. If you have an internal team of developers, we can work with them to facilitate a smooth handover that allows them to take control for the long term, or you can select from our tiers of support packages to keep your website evolving with your needs.

Thank you for doing such a superb job on the new site for us. It’s been a pleasure working with the team throughout the project – their hard work and dedication to a quality delivery for Chatham House has been exceptional. From our side it is much appreciated and we continue to amass positive (and envious) feedback from others.
