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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
