ExpressionEngine CMS development for local AIA chapter


  • ExpressionEngine Development

The American Institute of Architects Chicago (AIA Chicago) is the largest chapter of licensed architects, architectural interns, and allied professionals within AIA Illinois, and the second largest AIA chapter in the country.


Their website is built on the ExpressionEngine CMS platform utilizing Carthrob for membership dues, job board postings and documents.

Along with stabilizing the website and addressing critical issues, we consolidated their hosting to simplify management moving forward. With major issues addressed, we look forward to helping AIA Chicago with functionality and usability improvements.

“cre8 [has] been so unbelievably helpful to my organization. The website was developed poorly from the beginning and using a platform that few people had any experience with, and [cre8] really took on a lot of work to help us lift ourselves out of some major issues.

They work fast, ask the right questions, include me on all of their Basecamp conversations so I can monitor what’s happening, and translate all their work into plain English so I can grasp the problems and solutions. I’m really thrilled about how well they’ve handled our website; it has been difficult to find a trustworthy developer.”
