Samuel Haberman P.E., LC


At an early age, Sam had an interest and knack for drawing and math. In high school, Sam’s grandfather encouraged him to use that knowledge to pursue a degree in engineering. He never looked back. As an Alvine Engineering principal, Sam has proven himself to be a leader in the industry. He has developed a diverse portfolio of experience in electrical design for various types of buildings. Sam is also well-rounded with knowledge of the design requirements for building systems across Alvine Engineering’s services.

Early in his career with Alvine Engineering, Sam stepped up to the plate to lead the firm’s new branch office in Oklahoma City (OKC). Sam made the move with his family from Omaha, Nebraska to OKC to help manage and guide all facets of delivering engineering to the Oklahoma market. His leadership, determination, and client relationships in combination with support from a great staff have resulted in an incredibly successful addition to the OKC community.

Sam holds master degrees in architectural engineering and business administration. This background provides a unique blend of engineering and understanding of business metrics that drive project decisions. As a professional engineer and lighting certified by the National Council on Qualifications for the Lighting Professions (LC), Sam understands the entire design process, from engineering software to collaborating with stakeholders in initial project development.
