The Alvina Group


About Us



The Alvina Group gets its name from our founder's great-grandmother, Alvina Heine. She was a German immigrant with a strong work ethic and deep commitment to building a long-lasting community for her family. There is nothing more long-lasting than designing and building the physical and digital infrastructure that fosters the vital experiences of our world.  Alvina went through her life adapting to the dramatic changes in the world during the early twentieth century and left a legacy of navigating that change with grace and fortitude. We are inspired by her every day to help businesses move forward with the same values.
