Historical

As one of the industry’s leading experts in repositioning entire buildings and having worked in numerous historical landmarks, Leopardo knows what it takes to precisely restore and preserve the richness and character of a historically significant building.

We understand the delicate nature of historic restorations, and our experience and attention to detail sets us apart. With meticulous planning and preparation, we collaborate with the owner and preservation agencies to carefully remove, restore and reinstall materials. We often work with period-correct and meticulously-fitted custom features like ornate plaster ceiling panels, bronze revolving doors, interior decorative features and marble walls. Many of our historic renovations also involve the modernization of entire infrastructural systems, including electrical, mechanical and plumbing.

Among our long list of restoration and renovation awards, Leopardo won Landmark Illinois’ 2011 Richard H. Driehaus Foundation Preservation Award for Restoration Project of the Year for our work on Chicago’s iconic Sullivan Center.
