National Park Service

Alvine Engineering has a long history of working with the National Park Service (NPS) on a variety of projects, ranging from well-known landmarks to historic sites, helping to educate people on American history and culture.

Buildings can be one of the most difficult pieces of history to preserve and many can be difficult to adapt to modern technology while preserving the original historical elements. This is especially true of engineering systems as many of these historical buildings were built long before modern amenities, such as air conditioning, were even considered possible. Historic preservation engineering can cover all engineering disciplines from structural engineering to stabilize a building to electrical engineering to provide power to a structure built before electricity was widely used. Depending on how thorough the project, materials testing may be done to better repair damaged pieces or replace missing ones.

Our mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire protection, and technology divisions work in concert to integrate unique systems required to ensure the preservation of the nation’s most beloved landmarks and treasures for the enjoyment of generations to come.
