KFOR Television Facility

Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

38,000 GSF

A new two-studio television facility was built adjacent to the existing studio. The new facility utilizes the existing central plant, which Alvine Engineering also designed.


  • Complete HVAC systems including connections to existing central plant, air handling equipment, air distribution ductwork, and piping systems. HVAC systems were designed to comply with sound transmission requirements for studios.
  • Central plant and building air-handling equipment provide primary cooling to raised floor area for increased building efficiency and reduced operating costs.
  • Standalone, redundant cooling system consisting of ceiling-mount fan coil units and computer room air conditioning units with air-cooled condensing units for critical spaces including television studio data center.
  • Double-interlocked pre-action fire protection system serves critical spaces.
  • Portable generator connection for quick disaster recovery response time.
  • High-efficiency UPS system with maintenance bypass for concurrent maintainability of critical load.
  • Raised-access floor for distribution of power and network cables.
  • Mechanical, electrical, and plumbing system design accommodated a seamless transition from the existing building to the new building, where both buildings are operational and without downtime for the television studio.
  • Plumbing systems including all plumbing fixtures, domestic water piping, sanitary sewer piping, and sanitary vent piping were designed in accordance with applicable code.
  • Electrical distribution systems were designed, including connection to the existing electrical service in the central plant.
  • Telecommunications structured cabling design (voice and data) was provided.
