According to Rusty Wood, vice president of West Hills Construction’s alternative energy division, the company was contracted to design a one of-a-kind sustainable structure that would make maximum use of photovoltaic panels—something it was able to do while still in training with KETIV. “When we adopt a software program, we adopt the training,” says Wood. “It’s one of the most important reasons we were able to step up and implement so quickly.”
