VIKA Capitol is a recognized leader in sustainable design, innovative green strategies, and site design techniques in the District of Columbia.

Our difference? Our approach to sustainable design centers on capturing water at its source (onsite) and designing solutions to balance its use. This concept mirrors our own commitment to resource and cost efficiency, which makes sense in every environment.

We believe the best solution often is found within sustainable design elements that are based on the principle of emulating nature so that the natural processes occurring today will continue even as we occupy and use the land into the future.

The site is only one component of a much larger co‐dependent system. That’s why we expend the effort to understand the inter-relationships of all elements: soils, sunlight, stormwater, plant communities, heat islands and energy—and the impacts of human and site uses on each.

VIKA Capitol practices sustainable design that affects all phases of a project. From design concept to final site design, our sustainable design practices range from Low Impact Development (LID), to Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), to the use of environmentally friendly stormwater management products.

Our designs are economical, buildable, and durable, while maintaining a strong commitment to environmental stewardship.
