Leopardo Begins Work on 65,000-SF Build-Out for Sonova

Leopardo recently took part in a groundbreaking for Sonova’s new United States-based office in Aurora, Illinois. The ceremony was attended by Aurora mayor, Richard Irvin, as well as representatives from Sonova, Leopardo Companies, Colliers International, ESD Global, Whitney Architects, Invest Aurora Illinois and the Aurora Economic Development agency.

As part of Sonova’s relocation from its present office in Warrenville, Illinois, Leopardo will complete a full, 65,000-SF demolition and interior build-out across two floors. With an emphasis on a healthy corporate culture, the new office will feature an open layout with numerous collaborative spaces. The design will also allow for the incorporation of natural lighting, promoting employee wellbeing and energy efficiency.
