About Working

About Us



The Alvina Group gets it's 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.

Mission Statement

Together we all rise. 



At The Alvina Group we believe in more than business as usual. We invite all our partners and employees to commit to these principles as we do every day.

  1. Do the work, and do it right.
  2. Respect - earn it, give it.
  3. Maintain generosity in spirit and resources.
  4. He for she. She for she. We for we.

As a woman-owned and founded business in a male-dominated industry we are particularly attentive to creating an equal and transparent culture for all our employees. If you have any questions about these values please do not hesitate to reach out.



Modernize the engineering and construction industries as a conscientious partner deploying modern technology and practices.
