Woda Management, a branch of The Woda Group, Inc., specializes in the development, construction, and management of properties nationwide. Its portfolio includes housing units for low-income families, students, and senior citizens. In March of 2014, Woda Management announced that its property, Hayden Senior Housing in Springfield, Ohio, is anticipated to receive approval for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Certification.
Created by the United States Green Building Council, Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Certification, also known as LEED Certification, is bestowed upon properties that show increased efficiency in water, energy, and resources. The certification comes in four levels of achievement: certified, silver, gold, and platinum. Each level acknowledges the degree of which the property exhibits environment-friendly and sustainable features.
Upon approval, the company overseeing the development receives a certificate of recognition. The company can also choose to purchase a LEED plaque. Both publicly signify a company’s effort to incorporate sustainability into its project.
