Alvine Engineering Wins Two Engineering Excellence Awards

The 2024 Engineering Excellence Awards

OMAHA, NE — Every year, the American Council of Engineering Companies of Nebraska (ACEC NE) celebrates projects exhibiting the best of the best – the most innovative engineering projects produced by firms in Nebraska. Alvine Engineering is proud to announce that two of our nominations have been selected by the ACEC NE 2024 Engineering Excellence Awards committee. Our design work on the First National Tower renovation earned an Honor Award and was declared a Category Winner in the Building Systems and Technology section. Our design work for Brickline at The Mercantile earned an Honor Award in the Building Systems and Technology section.

Judges were impressed by our firm’s ability to deliver a design that created significant reductions in energy and resource output for the First National Tower while adhering to a complete paradigm shift away from the building’s original layout played a huge part in earning “Category Winner” honors from ACEC NE. The project was also able to adhere to an ambitious construction timeline despite the COVID-19 economic slowdowns. The pictures above depict the First National Tower’s robust audiovisual systems as well as the artistic blend of practical engineering systems within the interior architecture.

Brickline at The Mercantile incorporated a unique level of multidisciplinary collaboration in order to deliver a project that met the needs of multiple parties. Alvine Engineering held a unique position on the project, providing consulting and engineering expertise on city-owned services and privately owned commercial and residential spaces. The end result was a cohesive blend of commercial, residential, and public spaces that successfully fulfilled the client’s vision. To learn more about this unique, multi-use space, click here.
