Founded in 1999 by Meredith Leapley, Leapley Construction specializes in building exceptional commercial spaces for clients in the corporate, healthcare, higher education, industrial and adaptive re-use markets.

Within its first year of business, the company earned $1.5 million in revenue and quickly established its expertise in the construction industry. By 2001, Leapley was certified as a Women’s Business
Enterprise by WBENC and chosen by The Coca-Cola Company as the preferred partner for a Construction

Today, after 25 years of delivering a wide range of construction projects – from occupied renovations, first generation buildouts, multi-floor tenant improvement projects, and full building restacks – we are recognized as one of Atlanta’s Top 5 Largest Commercial Interior Contractors and the #1 Largest Woman Owned Interior Construction Firm.
