Royal Institute of British Architects

Website support and development partnership. RIBA formed an ongoing partnership with Wattle to provide support and development for its complex Sitecore CMS and bespoke .NET website estate.


RIBA is a global professional membership body driving excellence in architecture. They serve their members and society in order to deliver better buildings and places, stronger communities, and a sustainable environment. Being inclusive, ethical, environmentally aware and collaborative underpins all that they do.


Proven Sitecore Development Partner

With one of the most visited pieces of online real estate in the architectural world, RIBA were looking for a proven hosting and development partner with an impeccable track record.

Further to a thorough tender process RIBA elected to work with the combined team of Wattle and Eduserv, the not-for-profit technology advice provider.

With Eduserv providing the overall cloud hosting service, Wattle engaged directly with the RIBA development team to provide support and development services for the Institutes main Sitecore website and a portfolio on bespoke .NET systems.

Complex Requirements across Multiple Platforms

With ambitious growth plans, particularly internationally, the RIBA development team were looking to lean on Wattle for an array of support requirements, development tasks and projects across their entire website estate. 

Following an initial period of on-boarding, Wattle assembled a dedicated internal team to serve RIBA's needs comprising a Scrum Master, Senior Sitecore and .NET Developers and associated testing and technical support resources. The combined Wattle and RIBA teams are now working seamlessly together to:

  • Define ongoing requirements, product backlogs and user stories.
  • Manage sprint planning, stand-ups and retrospectives.
  • Deliver agile sprints in tandem with internal developers.
  • Ensure timely deployments to the RIBA website estate.
  • Provide overall support to the RIBA website.
