Additional Components

Highland Websites (.co.uk)

The above should comprise the majority of the work for the build process, creating all the mechanisms that allow your site to look good whether viewed on mobile or large desktop screen, creating the database and scripts where the type requires them. Beyond that, adding your text and image contents and any additional features you need will be charged at our hourly project rate of £30 per hour. During the contents process you will receive regular written updates detailing additional cost.
