Grand Casino Hotel and Resort

Grand Casino is owned and operated by the Citizen Potawatomi Nation of Oklahoma. The hotel and resort design is influenced by the casino’s established architectural theme of regional Prairie School styles. Alvine Engineering provided mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineering services. The Grand Casino Hotel and Resort includes an intimate lobby with access to a private spa and meeting rooms on the ground level and casino access on both ground and second floors. High-efficiency design solutions were integrated throughout the hotel.

Oklahoma Contemporary Arts Center

Founded in 1989, the mission of Oklahoma Contemporary is to keep art accessible, offering free exhibits, art camps and classes for local youth, as well as performances, lectures, adult classes, and workshops. This project includes a 301-seat black box theater and dance studio. Alvine Engineering was contracted to assist in relocating the center from State Fair Park into a new 54,000-square-foot building in downtown Oklahoma City.

Stuhr Museum of the Prairie Pioneer Restoration

Original plans for the Stuhr Building were designed by renowned architect, Edward Durrell Stone. During the initial construction many features were replaced by more affordable options. This restoration provided the design team an opportunity to reinstate elements of Stone’s original design that presented the clean, sleek, and open aesthetic he intended.

Alvine Engineering assisted the museum with master planning in 2008 and was part of the design team for the facility’s renovation. This project replaced the 2-story, 28,000-square-foot building’s HVAC, plumbing, power, lighting, fire suppression systems, and restored the building façade.
