West Hills Construction, Inc.

“On a job of this nature, Autodesk software may have saved us from misquoting by $200,000 in net profit.”

"West Hills Construction builds photovoltaic, wind turbine, hybrid air conditioning, and fuel cell technology systems using Autodesk® Inventor®, AutoCAD Mechanical, AutoCAD® Electrical, AutoCAD®, Autodesk® Vault Manufacturing, Autodesk Showcase®, Autodesk® 3ds Max®, and Autodesk®Maya®software.

West Hills Construction uses this software to—

  • Save hundreds of thousands of dollars with accurate cost estimates
  • Reduce the need for outside architectural consultants
  • Implement 3D shadow-casting to plot optimum solar panel locations
  • Win new business with high-quality sales presentations

 

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.”
