Solar Innovations released the first of a series of sites I built for them. This site focuses on the greenhouse planning, but the framework and theme are highly reusable. They are destined to be used on at least 2 more planning sites such as “Conservatory Planning” or “Skylight Planning”.

The theme was developed with SASS. This allowed me to create a base theme and then apply the various branding styles. For example, if you visit Greenhouse.Planning.Solar and Planning.Solar you can see the difference between two of the four themes.

The sites are built using Jekyll and served up through an NGINX webserver. This allows the site to be extremely performant. This blog post covers the performance and optimizations.
