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 Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification levels. Additionally, 25 percent of Leopardo office staff are LEED Professionals.
Based on our experience, we have the ability to provide a LEED scorecard and projected cost impact. 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.
Leveraging traditional and non-traditional energy conservation measures, Leopardo also collaborates with municipalities and other organizations to renew facilities while simultaneously increasing energy efficiency and decreasing energy costs—all without the need for new capital expenditures. Leopardo develops energy saving performance contracts (ESPCs) that create self-funding projects and provide clients with a comprehensive set of energy efficient, renewable energy and distributed generation measures
