A Passion To Build

Leopardo is a recognized leader in construction with the resources to build world-class projects with innovative processes across every major sector. Founded in 1977, we’ve grown continuously and today employ hundreds of industry professionals in our Hoffman Estates and Chicago offices, as well as on job sites across the nation.

Municipal

Leopardo prides itself on our ability to collaborate with municipal partners to build strong and active communities. We understand the complexities involved and can successfully steer them through the complex approval process, protect precious budget dollars and determine the most appropriate and cost-effective construction options. With our commitment to local hiring, we help turn our construction projects into economic stimulus packages, subcontracting with local businesses and employing local tradespeople.

Job Order Contracts

We understand the ins and outs of JOC work. From an emergency roof repair that requires an expedited response or a complete historic facade restoration to civil (sewer/water/bridges) and infrastructure work, Leopardo has the tools, the people and the flexibility to find the most cost-effective solution and complete the task on time. Our wide range of JOC experience encompasses federal, municipal, higher education, industrial and more.
