Leopardo helped pioneer the green construction movement in the Midwest and is a recognized leader in sustainable building practices with extensive project experience spanning all LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, certification levels.
Plus, 30 percent of Leopardo office staff are LEED accredited professionals (LEED APs). Based on our experience, we have the ability to provide a LEED scorecard and projected cost impacts. We also advise clients about the countless benefits of sustainable design and construction. Using green building practices, materials and systems can actually cost less than non-green counterparts and provide immediate and long-term savings. So, many projects actually achieve LEED certification with little or no added cost and with budgets well within the range of non-green buildings.
