JNM Engineering is the latest company to be assisted by CCM. I have just published a new company profile for this Civil Engineering Design Consultancy Practice based in Ironbridge, Telford, West Midlands.
Their office seems to be precariously hanging on to the side of the banks of the River Severn, but they do specialise in Flood Risk Assessment, so they should be pretty safe.
They offer design consultancy services for drainage network design, highways adoption, flood risk assessment, Planning Policy Statement PPS 25 documentation, and residential / commercial scheme development.
James Mewis, the Practice Director has worked on some pretty big schemes in his 10 year experience, including the M42 Junction 4a widening scheme boasting Europes largest overhead gantry, and he has worked on the mother or all drainage networks for an Airport design.
They utilise some of the latest sophisticated software packages to carry out the drainage network design.
While writing this profile, I have had to learn some new phrases from James -
Grey Water Harvesting
Rain Water Harvesting
Attenuated Drainage Systems
Attenuated Flow Systems
Reservoir Class Systems
Section 104 / 102 / 106 Approvals
Section 38 / 278 / 247 Approvals
So hopefully, with this profile published on CCM, JNM Engineering should get a flood of new enquiries.

A very simple but effective way to enhance the look and feel of websites is to add a background image to pages. I have found this particularly useful on WMCCM hosted pages provided as part of our free assistance to eligible SMEs and start-ups. By simply adding
< body background=”image location”>
to the html code for the page, a background image is placed on the page. Two simple websites I created recently for start-up companies under our start-up support package are good examples, the first being Smart Fabrications and the second being Multifit (UK). I find making the image partially transparent, reducing the contrast and slightly increasing the brightness makes the background image more subtle and allows the page content to still stand out.
A useful variant is to have the background static but allowing the main content to scroll freely over it. This can be done adding
< body background=”image location” bgproperties=”fixed”>
to the code for the page. A good example of this is the site I created recently for Hawk Design as part of a full 5 day assistance package.

Its time to break out the Champaign - or a nice bottle of beer of two !
The 5000th company has just registered with us on WMCCM.
WMCCM is the regions best provider of fully funded e-Business support services and assistance to eligible small medium enterprises in the West Midlands, UK.
Anyone can register for free - but actually we always try for quality not quantity - we encourage companies to provide a detailed company profile when they register. Most companies do, but some don't - so we regrettably have to decline some applications .... which makes the 5000 registrations all the more impressive.
So why do we insist on a company profile? So that you publish rich, search engine friendly content to illuminate your products and services on the Internet. This means that you can be more easily found on the Internet by potential customers and generate more enquiries and sales.
These profiles are much better than the typical entries made in some business directories I could mention. Primarily designed to help regional companies, we also attract national and international interest. Buyers, including some big name Tier 1 contractors also register, hopefully to seak out potential suppliers to fulfil their supply chain requirements.
And for the lucky few companies who match the post code lottery numbers, we can provide fully funded e-Business assistance packages. But time is running out fast. At our latest check we only have 32 full assistance packages left.
And our 42 remaining Start-up Support packages for eligible companies who are less than 18 months old are fast running out too. You will need to act now and check out http://www.wmccm.co.uk/to secure your place.

As part of a number of initiatives promoting the WMCCM Fully-Funded Start-up Support Package, including a recently launched Google AdWords campaign, the Start-up Support site has been given a makeover. Part of this revamp includes a new display showing the number of remaining packages available, which will be kept updated as they are taken up by client companies. As these free packages are strictly limited, this countdown should provide more of a sense of urgency to start-up companies who are “thinking about” whether to take up the offer, hopefully leading to an increased rate of take-up.
