How Long Does It Take to Create a Custom Website at BIAC Digital Agency?

One of the most frequently asked questions we encounter from potential clients is, “How long will my project take?” The answer often begins with, “Well, it depends.” Before providing a definitive timeline, we typically need more details about the project or a specific brief to accurately estimate the duration required.

Creating a custom website involves several stages, from initial discovery and planning to the final launch of a fully functional website. Let’s break down what goes into determining the timeline of a web design and development project at BIAC Digital Agency.

It’s Not That Simple

Every web design project is unique, and at BIAC, we know better than to adopt a one-size-fits-all approach. Each project is treated with a bespoke plan tailored to its specific needs, which is why the time to complete a project can vary significantly.

On average, following our detailed process and with timely feedback from the client, a standard web design and development project spans anywhere from 12 to 16 weeks, depending on the complexity and requirements.

Factors That Influence the Timeline

Several key elements determine the duration of your website project:

  • Site Map/Number of Pages: The scope of your website—how extensive it needs to be and the number of custom pages required.
  • Complexity of Features and Integrations: Specific technical requirements such as multilingual capabilities, CRM integrations, or advanced functionalities can extend the project timeline.
  • Design Requirements: Whether you have established brand guidelines and a clear visual identity or need our help in developing these elements will impact the schedule.
  • Content Strategy: You know your business best. While we assist with the structure and initial content drafts, the final messaging relies heavily on your input, which can take time to refine.
  • Graphic Design and Multimedia: Extensive graphic design work, including image and video editing, is often necessary to ensure that all visual elements reflect your brand’s identity and communicate effectively with your audience.
  • Performance Optimization: Speed optimization, security measures, and regular backups are implemented to ensure that your site is fast, secure, and resilient against data loss.

Our Process Explained

Wondering what happens during these 12 to 16 weeks? Here’s a closer look at our process:

Week 1: Kick-off & Discovery

This initial phase is crucial as we immerse ourselves in your business, understanding your goals and the specifics of the project. It sets a solid foundation and aligns our team with your expectations for the upcoming weeks.

Week 2: UX Design

Post-discovery, our focus shifts to the user experience (UX). We outline user journeys and define the goals your website should help users achieve, ensuring the site structure is intuitive and user-centric.

Weeks 3-4: UI Design

During this phase, the visual aspects of your website come to life. We apply your branding and our design expertise to create an interactive prototype, incorporating all agreed-upon elements. Client feedback during this stage is crucial as it helps refine the final design.

Weeks 5-10: Web Development

With the design approved, coding begins. Our developers transform the designs into a functional website, adhering closely to the specifications laid out in the earlier stages. A beta version of the site is prepared for preliminary review.

Weeks 11-12: QA & Testing

Before going live, the website undergoes thorough testing and quality assurance to polish any rough edges. This period also includes a final round of client feedback and content finalization.

Week 12: Go Live

Celebration time—your website is ready to launch! But our relationship doesn’t end here. We view each client as a potential long-term partner, ready to support and evolve your website as needed.
