As we always do with our customers, we maintain a relationship with the district staff after a project is completed. As other issues arose in the District, we were there to help develop solutions and rapidly implement a project, such as the wastewater treatment plant and auditorium renovations – not just energy efficiency projects. Our management team keeps in touch proactively, always looking out for the customer’s best interests. As a result, we have completed multiple projects, never missing a deadline, or exceeding the budgeted pricing.
