Kalwall ‘Daylighting’ course, Eckman’s awards … and more

The course was designed by Mike Crowder, marketing manager for Kalwall and a LEED Accredited Professional, who said the course allows professionals to understand the way translucent fiberglass sandwich panels can assist in several areas of the LEED score sheet.


Meanwhile, Kalwall has added three people to fill key roles in the company: Tony Cerasuolo as Northeast regional sales manager; Tom Hon as Midwest regional sales manager; and Mark Lipman as Metro New York City salesman.
