Introducing CAS Engineering's Montgomery County Sediment Control Flow Chart

The engineering team at CAS recently developed a [flow chart] intended to lead builders, architects, and homeowners through the labyrinth of Montgomery County sediment control, stormwater management, and drainage plan regulations. The chart is meant to help identify the required plans and permits early in the design process when it is most beneficial. CAS Engineering President, Curt Schreffler, first introduced the chart at a recent SWM seminar sponsored by the Captial Area Custom Residential Architects Network [CRAN]. MCDPS Plan Reviewer, Andrew Kohler, who presented at the same seminar, was particularly helpful as we fine-tuned the flow chart. Feel free to take it for a test drive as you begin your next project. We welcome you to email the [CAS Engineering] team with questions or comments.

19th Annual Greater Potomac Golf Classic

CAS Engineering has been honored to participate in the Greater Potomac Golf Classic over the last 19 years. Held on June 14, 2019, and strongly supported by many of our clients and colleagues, it was once again a top-shelf event with great weather, food, prizes, etc. Over $24,000 was distributed to four deserving non-profit organizations (Brainy Camps – Camp New Friends, Children’s Tumor Fund, Hospice of Frederick County, and Johns Hopkins University (Research). One hundred sixteen golfers competed to win over $1,000 in cash and over $10,000 in prizes. Once final accounting has wrapped up, additional information will follow regarding 2019 proceeds and the 20th and final golf tournament scheduled for June 12, 2020.

THREE on Cathedral

For decades Cathedral Avenue, NW terminated into a massive drainage ditch just west of Foxhall Road. The ditch bisected a large family estate once known as Acclimation or the Truland property. Given the topographic complexity of this project, the multitude of entities, and the number of parcels involved, this unique development opportunity was bypassed by many developers over the years. We recently spearheaded the design and permitting of a three-lot subdivision with the Cliveden Group. Navigating through the DCRA, DOEE, DDOT, DC Water, ANC, etc. regulatory maze will be well worth the effort as this project evolves over the following months. To see the full development team and check out some remarkable renderings, visit THREE on Cathedral.

Howard University Dormitory Conversions in LeDroit Park Nearing Completion

Two projects by our DC Team are nearing completion at Carver Hall and Slowe Hall. Both are former Howard University dormitories being converted to residential apartments by Urban Investment Partners [UIP] and Neighborhood Development Company [NDC]. We were lucky to work with the talented architects at Bonstra | Haresign ARCHITECTS [B|HA] on this great re-purposing project. Adding green roofs and working with the existing building footprints, while adding amenities and function to the buildings proved challenging at times, but the results are great additions to the LeDroit Park neighborhoods. Click [here] to request a fabulous brochure, published by B|HA on the history of the project.

CAS Engineering in the Community

Not to be confused with the Tour de France, the real TDF is the Tour de Frederick held on August 10. This great event benefits the Boys and Girls Club of Frederick County. CAS Project Manager Stephanie Fisher will volunteer all weekend as a member of the Carroll Creek Rotary Club and Curt Schreffler will be riding in (and hopefully finishing) the Century Ride. If you would like to ride, volunteer, or donate, click [here].

Kudos to the Team at Katz Engineering

Did you happen to peruse the April 2019 article in the Washingtonian featuring a stunning backyard resort project in DC's Forest Hills? It was by two firms we routinely collaborate with, Campion Hruby and Thompson Cooke. Civil engineering was by Katz Engineering who expertly overcame various SWM challenges. If you are curious as to who "Katz" is ... well, it’s us. Thanks to a small misspelling we continue to fly under the radar, just how we like it! Click [here] to download a PDF of the article.
