See below for TFMoran’s president Robert Duval, PE answers to NHBR’s questions:

In what ways have TFMoran projects helped
advance the ongoing expansion of New
Hampshire’s infrastructure?

Robert Duval: “One of the most important
skills that TFMoran has developed over the
years is the successful redevelopment of
under-utilized urban and industrial land. We
have played an integral role in many of the
region’s most significant redevelopment
projects, among them the SNHU Arena and
the Fisher Cats Stadium in Manchester’s
urban core; redevelopment of the Bedford
Mall, Wayfarer Hotel, and former Macy’s
properties in Bedford; a major expansion of
the GE Aviation Plant in Hooksett, conversion
of several mill buildings in Lowell and
Lawrence to residential/commercial use,
and designing a new 1,700 car parking garage
at the south end of Manchester’s historic
Millyard, currently under construction.
These few projects alone provide hundreds
of millions of dollars of new tax base revenues
to the local community. In addition,
they are bringing vibrancy and prosperity
to our historic urban centers, and helping
restore the charm and character that makes
New England such a great place to live and
work.”

What does TFMoran do differently
that makes it stand out as an
engineering firm?
Robert Duval: “What makes TFMoran
different is our corporate culture. In addition
to being leaders and innovators in
our industry, we are also active members
of our communities. We strongly encourage
all employees to become involved
outside the workplace in professional and
community organizations. We believe an
involved person is a caring person, and a
caring person will create better designs —
designs that have a more positive impact
on their surroundings, and designs that
save our clients time and money. This
is why TFMoran is known for providing
superior value to our clients at competitive
rates.”

What has been your firm’s biggest
challenge and how did you
overcome it?
Robert Duval: “One of the biggest challenges
we face in today’s development
world is intense schedule pressure. All
across the industry, we are seeing a
demand for delivery of a project in the
shortest possible timeframe. Owners and
developers are finding it difficult to wait
for projects to wind their way through the
approval process as their users are looking
for immediate results. Meanwhile, the
regulatory process is becoming ever more
complex and pervasive. Over the past few
years, understanding the unique needs
and opportunities of each project, we have
found many innovative and creative ways
to navigate the new regulatory environment
within our clients’ aggressive schedules.
We have worked hard to develop our
reputation for meeting these challenging
deadlines, and we are proud of our impressive
track record.”
