Please join us for a tour of Leopardo prior to the presentations from 5:00pm – 5:30pm. The Leopardo office is in the final stages of pursuing dual certification under the LEED and WELL commercial interiors rating systems. The space was finished in December of 2018. They did a hard hat tour during Chicago Greenbuild 2018 and will be presenting on this project at the Chicago Builds Conference this September.
