As you travel through the region, you will see Alpha’s influence on the built environment, especially in West Virginia. Alpha’s project success stories tell the tale of an Architectural studio that has creativity and flexibility. Our architecture team is led by our Director of Architecture, Rebecca Key.
The projects here at Alpha are as unique as the staff that created them. Our architectural studio is committed to creating the client focused design that is the foundation of Alpha’s vision. Through the implementation of Building Information Modeling, computer generated renderings, and the latest design technology, Alpha’s creative team supplies the client with more than just building plans.

Alpha designs beautiful, sustainable and energy-efficient schools that reflect the particular community’s values. We deliver facilities that attract and engage students, instructors, and personnel and translate capital investments into long-term assets.
With every office or commercial building, Alpha promotes the transparency that customers have come to expect from businesses while reinforcing brand values and service. We help workplaces and retail spaces strike a balance between the collective and the individual; group interaction and undisturbed thinking. By harnessing natural daylight and sustainable building systems, we produce spaces that energize occupants to be their best selves.
Healthcare buildings have to perform when you need them most — every feature is calibrated to help patients feel comfortable, help staff move efficiently, and help practitioners function at the highest levels. Our healthcare designs include incredible attention to detail, from easy-to-navigate corridors and wayfinding to functional, portable equipment.
Over the years, Alpha has renovated and designed multiple attractive and sustainable civic structures that help make government more efficient and helpful. We believe that spaces that work for both the public and the employees who spend time in them every day contribute to better government.
Alpha has participated in multiple renovations of Historic properties. We are assured that an accurate historical record and its significance as it pertains to the existing structure, and modifications can be thoroughly documented, should various funding grants require an in depth historical narrative.
Over the years, Alpha has designed recreational and sports facilities for state and municipal communities, and education campuses. We combine the skills of landscape architecture, civil engineering, and interior design, to create facilities that fit communities, athletes and fans to come.
