Located in the heart of downtown Honolulu, Capitol Place is a luxury condo building completed in 2010.

Front entrance on Queen Emma Street

Capitol Place, a high-rise commercial/residential mixed-use condominium near downtown Honolulu, was successfully developed on schedule with Belt Collins involvement throughout the project. From initial involvement in entitlement and easement assessments through construction, Belt Collins supported the Owner/Developer and design team, providing planning and engineering services. The civil engineering design was done in four construction packages: demolition and mass grading; building site improvements; off-site intersection improvements and off-site sanitary sewer installation.

The civil engineering design was done in four construction packages: demolition and mass grading; building site improvements; off-site intersection improvements and off-site sanitary sewer installation.

An approximate 2.7-acre municipal parking lot was redeveloped as a 39-story a 394-unit high-rise mixed-use condominium, with Belt Collins providing planning assessments and civil engineering design. Planning services included review of Honolulu Special District requirements, implications of easements encumbering the property on the project layout, and environmental compliance review. Multiple design packages were then completed concurrently for the project addressing site demolition and mass grading; on-site site improvements including water, sewer, storm drainage and gas utilities, building access; and improvements within the right-of-way. The site access was coordinated with the Owner/Developer, design team, and the City and County of Honolulu to meet commercial, residential, vehicular and pedestrian needs. Each entity commercial, residential and public maintains its own identity, space, and circulation, with dedicated entrances accessible from three different city streets.

Two off-site improvement design packages were completed for the project - one for intersection improvements at Pali Highway and Kukui Street, the other for the installation of 1,450 lineal feet of 12-inch diameter sanitary sewer on Alakea Street from King Street to the site.Construction of the off-site sewer line required nighttime work to minimize impacts to traffic in downtown Honolulu. Numerous abandoned utilities, structures, and archaeological finds were encountered which required site visits to review the obstacle, communicate with utility service providers and prepare design sketches for discussion/review by City, Owner’s Representative, utility service owner, and contractor to facilitate resolutions and maintain the work schedule.The schedule was also constrained by City’s Beretania Street Reconstruction project.The sewer crossing Beretania Street was successfully installed ahead of schedule to avoid the 1-year moratorium following the City street repaving.The on-site improvements, off-site sewer, and Pali Highway/Kukui Street packages were all designed and constructed on-time meeting both the Owner/Developer's and City's requirements. Additional services provided included processing of the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit for storm water discharges during construction of all packages, and construction observation throughout all phases of the civil work.
