BUILDING HIGHLIGHTS

Capitol View on 14th is a mixed-use multifamily building with 255 units and 20,000 sf of retail located in Washington, D.C.  This project was awarded a LEED Platinum Certification from the Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI).  This is one of the largest projects included in the renovation / rehabilitation of the 14th Street corridor.  As part of this effort, SBP provided whole building energy modeling and energy efficiency consulting services throughout the design process.  SBP was integral in evaluating design alternatives with the goal to maximize the performance of the facility helping to make LEED Platinum a possibility. The project achieved 33% energy cost savings and earned (7 of 10) LEED EA Credit 1 points for Optimized Energy Performance relative to ASHRAE 90.1-2004 and LEED whole building energy modeling protocol.
