"I started Leapley Construction with a passion for people - for our team, our clients, our neighbors and partners in the community. With this focus, the business grew steadily for years. When we were ready to take on bigger projects and level up in the industry, I partnered with Alan Scoggins, a true construction expert. With his operational insight, and our strong partnership, Leapley has grown tremendously over the past decade, and we have increased our impact in the community significantly.”

Leapley’s leaders have open and honest conversations with all of us. I know that they want me to succeed as an individual and as a member of the team. I haven’t experienced this direct access to leadership with any other company.

Leapley has earned a great reputation in the industry by delivering great work with integrity. I am proud to say I work here.

Over six months, Leapley Construction delivered 11 concurrent renovation projects on the Georgia Tech campus as part of a Master Task-Order Contract. The renovation work included: 

Howey Physics Building Quantum Kimchi Office Renovation – Leapley transformed under-utilized space into a classroom and two offices with new finishes, soffits, paint, window treatments and sprinkler heads.

Ford Environmental Science & Technology Building (ES&T) Lang Lab Fit-up – Leapley demolished existing casework, built new casework, added fume hoods, and delivered new finishes, paint and ceiling tiles.

ES&T Loading Dock Sprinkler Modifications – Leapley replaced all sprinkler runs and added new exterior ceiling tiles and overhead clearance signage  

North Avenue Apartments West Reception Area & General Upgrades – Leapley renovated the reception area and corridors throughout the student housing facility, including updated signage and unique finishes on each of the five floors. The team also renovated showers in the staff apartments.

Engineering, Science and Mechanics Building Painting – Leapley managed lead abatement and patched and painted drywall throughout. With rigorous containment protocols, Leapley maintained the safety of building occupants throughout the renovation.

Campus Recreation Center (CRC) Sprinkler Replacement – Leapley replaced sprinkler heads throughout the recreation center’s basketball and indoor pool facilities. To maintain access to the pool’s high dive platform, Leapley utilized additional scaffolding to safely replace overhead systems. 

IPS&T Main Atrium Sprinkler Relocation – A research institute linking Georgia Tech and the international paper industry, the Renewable Bioproducts Institute operates out of the building colloquially known by its former name – the Institute of Paper Science and Technology (IPS&T). Because this facility is heavily trafficked and home to a historic, immovable 1700s era paper press, the renovation to the IPS&T fire protection system was the most challenging component of the Master Task Order work. To safely remove a concealed sign 50-feet up in the soffit area and replace sprinklers throughout the atrium, the Leapley team devised an innovative metal and wood containment system for the museum piece, built extensive scaffolding and installed overhead protective barriers to protect students and faculty during the renovation. Leapley collaborated closely with the university and the fire marshal to drain the sprinkler system while protecting the beams and replacing sprinklers per the Georgia Tech Yellow Book standards for construction projects.  

Campus Warehouse Phase 2 Storage Consolidation – To create more usable space in a campus warehouse, Leapley updated finishes and added barn doors to existing office space. Concurrently, the team updated millwork and light fixtures throughout the facility and replaced the exterior loading dock.  

Van Leer Electrical and Computer Engineering Building  Distribution Replacement – Leapley utilized a shaft wall system to install new conduit and replace the 4160v electrical distribution system.

Cherry Emerson Generator – Leapley installed a new generator system to ensure an uninterrupted power supply for the sensitive research conducted in the School of Biological Sciences. While managing asbestos abatement in the 55-year-old facility, Leapley coordinated with the professors operating in each of the 56 dust-sensitive labs to coordinate precise equipment placement and prevent disruption to ongoing research efforts. 

ALAN SCOGGINS

In the 17 years that followed, he managed many healthcare construction projects for a national general contractor before joining Leapley Construction in 2011 to manage operations of the growing business. Alan is a hands-on leader, a focused and decisive builder, and an advocate for sustainability. Since 2012, he has served on the board of directors for the Lifecycle Building Center to promote the reuse of construction materials and reduce construction waste in landfills. Under his leadership, Leapley safely delivers award-winning projects on-time and within budget in three focused commercial interior markets.
