Several web sites that offer this service are listed at this link. Scroll down almost to the bottom of the page (under e-Project management).

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!

Best Regards,
