St. John Paull II Newman Center

Alvine Engineering provided mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and architectural lighting design services. The St. John Paul II Newman Center is a Catholic residence and ministry center for University of Nebraska at Omaha students, consisting of multi-bedroom suites, fellowship areas, prayer gardens, a rectory, and a worship sanctuary. The 4-story on-campus building will accommodate more than 160 students.
