    This seems a bit excessive...

    PHP Code:
    <div class="BoxBotContainer">
        <
    div class="BoxBotBrdrTop">
            <
    div class="BoxBotBrdrBot">

                <
    div class="BoxBotBrdrLeft">
                    <
    div class="BoxBotBrdrRight">
                        <
    div class="BoxBotCurveLeftTop">
                            <
    div class="BoxBotCurveLeftBot">
                                <
    div class="BoxBotCurveRightTop">
                                    <
    div class="BoxBotCurveRightBot">

    I'm afraid it's very poorly built. Not the standard I'd expect of a web design company this side of '99.

    Poor, inconsistent, invalid, deprecated code. Inaccessibly built with tables and a scarily crazy amount of divs:

    HTML Code:
    <div class="BoxBotContainer">
        <div class="BoxBotBrdrTop">
            <div class="BoxBotBrdrBot">
    
                <div class="BoxBotBrdrLeft">
                    <div class="BoxBotBrdrRight">
                        <div class="BoxBotCurveLeftTop">
                            <div class="BoxBotCurveLeftBot">
                                <div class="BoxBotCurveRightTop">
                                    <div class="BoxBotCurveRightBot">
                                        <div id="ctl00_ContentContainerThree_ctl01_pnlLayout" class="BoxBotPadding">
                                            <div class="DefaultMidleBotBoxLiveBGPadding">
                                                <div><img src="/media/images/prestaging/live-chat.gif" alt="Live Chat" /></div>
    
                                                <div class="DefaultMidleBotBoxChateText">

    WHAT?!

    That navigation menu needs the cursor:default; removing from the CSS (any reason why you're serving CSS so weird? http://www.technicweb.com/Skins/WebR...89314572827500 - that seems really pointless). Serve CSS as CSS.

    Didn't look past the homepage.

    Back to the drawing board methinks, in terms of build.

    (I voted 'no', by the way)

    EDIT: I took the plunge and headed deeper:

    In many cases, web designers are ‘Hybrids’ which means one person designs, builds and takes care of the back-end database* instead of having specialists in each of these skill sets; the “Jack of all trades” scenario. At TechnicWeb all our staff are experts in their particular field** and collaborate on every project.
    * You might benefit this approach. It looks like you're giving designs to old school coders who don't understand the relation between design and build.
    ** You need a build expert, someone to actually build the views rather than a programmer.

    All websites built SEO compliant
    No they're not. That code's not helping anything.

    Hope that was useful.

    Why is the menu curved on the left but cut off on the right, it seems an odd choice not to have it equal?
