HGC’s recent project at Maple Knoll Communities was recently awarded with LEED Platinum Certification. According to the U.S. Green Building Council, “LEED-certified homes are designed to provide clean indoor air and ample natural light and to use safe building materials to ensure our comfort and good health. They help us reduce our energy and water consumption, thereby lowering utility bills each month, among other financial benefits. Using the strategies outlined in LEED, homeowners are having a net-positive impact on their communities.” Check out another large-scale LEED Platinum project The expansion of Maple Knoll Village, a full-service retirement community in Springdale, Ohio, is called Coventry Court Villas.
