Construction

    Our team is driven by a shared passion to build, no matter what we’re building or how we’re building it.

    We pride ourselves on delivering exceptional value to our clients and project partners through turnkey construction services and project approaches, including design-build, MEP coordination, integrated project delivery (IPD), lean construction, self-performed trades and more. Whether serving as general contractor, construction manager or design-builder, we first and foremost operate as your advocate.

    Preconstruction

    Our preconstruction process is widely recognized for expediting the project to deliver quicker revenue generation, the ability to pay debt service sooner and serve the community earlier.

    We collaborate with architects and engineers to provide constructability reviews, model analysis, coordination and cost analysis to guide the design within budget parameters. In fact, 99 percent of our estimates fall within two percent of our projected cost. We collaborate utilizing building information modeling (BIM) and offer insight throughout design and development to ensure the project is economical, efficient and exceptional.

    Self-Perform

    By employing and protecting a specialized team of more than 200 in-house tradespeople, we can ensure better safety, more collaboration and greater quality.

    With a robust team of professional drywallers, painters, carpenters, electricians and laborers in-house, Leopardo delivers even more value to our clients by self-performing essential construction work.

    Building Services

    We provide clients with a variety of building services backed by our trusted name and decades of experience.

    Our building services group offers general maintenance, emergency service and light construction work, unit pricing, time-and-material open books and yearly service contracts, all with competitive pricing and the flexibility to execute projects with minimal disruption to occupied spaces. We’ve earned the trust of corporations and property managers to be the maintenance and service provider they rely on year after year. Our skilled in-house tradespeople have the specialized knowledge, equipment and products to expertly complete projects ranging from quick repairs and regular maintenance to troubleshooting computer-controlled systems.

    High-Performance

    As an early adopter of the green construction movement in the Midwest, Leopardo is a recognized leader in sustainable building practices.

    Our extensive project experience spans all Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification levels, multiple LEED rating systems, as well as both versions of WELL. With both LEED and WELL Accredited Professionals on our team, we guide our clients on the importance and value of healthy and high-performing spaces.

    Technology

    An enhanced project experience that’s right for you.

    Leopardo uses both virtual design and construction (VDC) and building information modeling (BIM) to facilitate the building process. Leveraging 3D models and an ever-evolving toolkit of construction technologies allows us to deliver work better, safer and faster. Our team of in-house construction technologists work with the project team to create information-rich computer models that contain valuable information about the building’s constructability, system costs, material supply chains, energy performance, as well as subcontractor logistics. At any point in a project’s lifecycle, we can offer a customized virtual experience to meet your project’s goals and expectations.

    Safety

    We focus on enabling things to go right, not just eliminating things that can go wrong.

    For us, safety is more than a priority or goal. It’s what results from meticulous planning, the expertise of our people and a cultural commitment to sending our employees home to their loved ones every night. Leopardo consistently sets the safety bar higher than others even strive to reach. Our overall Experience Modification Rate (EMR) and Incident Rate are consistently and significantly lower than national averages. We also employ and protect a field force of more than 200 tradespeople, which makes our industry-leading numbers even more impressive. Our dedication to risk management means our clients are protected too.

    Leopardo Energy

    Leveraging traditional and non-traditional energy conservation measures.

    Leopardo 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. Through comprehensive energy audits, identifying improvements to save energy, addressing deferred maintenance issues, analyzing existing financial conditions and identifying fleet operations options, 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.

     

    Development

    A smart contractor can be a strong development partner.

    With decades of experience, Leopardo counsels and collaborates with clients on sale-leasebacks for freeing up precious capital, tax-engineering strategies for depreciating property quicker and lowering the net tax base, alternative financing methods, municipal grants, economic development zones and more.
