Capitol Engineering Group is the MEP engineer for The Benning Rd. Mixed Use project "Benning Road Project combines 127,000 sq. ft. of office space, 15,500 sq. ft. of street level retail space and 62,000 sq. ft. of residential space. The project exploits the sloping grade from Benning Road up to the residentially-scaled Blaine Street at the rear of the site to provide at-grade access to parking and loading that becomes a partially below-grade plinth for the residential block and green-roof terrace. The garden plaza also serves to separate the commercial and retail blocks, concentrated in a six-story building stretching along Benning Road, from the five-story residential block in the rear of the site. The 140,000 sq. ft. parking garage offers 250 spaces on four levels of covered at-grade and below-grade parking."
