I just finished reading the article "eSteel: A New Business Model" in the
February 2000 Modern Steel Construction, page 45.
Probably interesting reading as a starting point.
Good luck and keep us posted on progress.

Subject: Project Websites

Yesterday afternoon, I attended an annual corporate planning retreat.  I
left the meeting with an assignment to establish and maintain Halff
Associates' first project-specific, restricted-access website.  This website
will be for a large (800 ft. clear span) twin-arch bridge project in Dallas.
The website is expected to be accessed frequently for information exchange
and coordination by at least four government agencies, a design team
comprised of six firms in Dallas and Zurich, a general contractor, and
several subcontractors.  Part of the website might also be accessible to the
general public for their information, but that is clearly a secondary goal.

I have no experience with project websites, and admit that I have ignored
and deleted all of the recent posts under the thread.  What
advice do any of you have to offer?  What are the most important features of
a project website?  Can email distribution be integrated into it?  What
about visitor tracking, download logging, and other security features?  What
mistakes have been made on previous project websites?  Where can I find
resources to produce the site, and to host it?

Thank you in advance for your useful input!
