Wyndham Vacation Ownership (WVO), the world’s largest vacation ownership company and a member of the Wyndham Worldwide family of companies (NYSE: WYN) received LEED certification by the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program for the company’s Wyndham Branson Preview Center at 240 Terrace Boulevard in Branson, Missouri. LEED is a third-party certification program and premier benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high-performance green buildings.
Formerly a vacant medical facility, the three-story, 33,000-square foot facility underwent renovations last year that included environmentally conscious construction and design, an energy-efficient HVAC system and lighting, and new landscaping. The building is the first Wyndham sales center to install a pneumatic tube system between each floor to allow associates to send documents more efficiently during the sales process.

In 2014, WVO’s corporate headquarters building, Sea Harbor Office Center, in Orlando, Fla. received LEED gold certification.

The Wyndham Branson Preview Center brings more than 200 WorldMark® by Wyndham and CLUB WYNDHAM® employees together in a collaborative environment, assisting them in managing the nearly 35,000 sales tours that come through the site annually. The sales center supports four resorts located in Branson, including WorldMark Branson, Wyndham Branson at The Falls, Wyndham Branson at The Meadows, and Wyndham Mountain Vista.
