Atlantic Orthopedics Project featured in April 3rd issue of NE Real Estate Journal

John Lorden, PE, Senior Project Manager at MSC: a Division of TFMoran, Inc., wrote a feature article on the future expansion of Atlantic Orthopedics & Sports Medicine in the April 3rd edition of the New England Real Estate Journal.   MSC, the Portsmouth, NH division of TFMoran provided survey, civil/site engineering and permitting for two 20,000sf medical office buildings at 1900 Lafayette Road in Portsmouth, NH.  Atlantic Orthopedics & Sports Medicine, will occupy one building along with an MRI coach and future MRI addition.  The project team includes general contractor BBL Medical Facilities and architect HCP Architects, both of Albany, NY. All of the project team members have worked closely with Atlantic Orthopedics & Sports Medicne since the initial planning stages of this exciting project.

Article Excerpt:

Portsmouth, NH – The final vacant lot along Lafayatte Road (US Route 1) in Portsmouth’s Office/Residential zoning district will soon be home to Atlantic Orthopedics & Sports Medicine’s new facility. MSC a division of TFMoran, Inc., recently received planning board approval for two new office buildings. Construction will soon be underway at 1900 Lafayette Road in Portsmouth, as the ground breaking is scheduled for April 2015.

Atlantic Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine, currently located at 150 Route 1 Bypass in Portsmouth, will be occupying the new office building closest to Lafayette Road. After considering an expansion to their existing location, Atlantic Orthopedics & Sports Medicine ultimately decided that a new facility would better fit their needs to continue providing quality services to their patients.

“The project required a lengthy and challenging permitting process, as details related to stormwater drainage and the complete build-out of a service road connecting local businesses were vital components of the project” explained John Lorden, PE, MSC’s Senior Project Manager. “Ultimately, stormwater drainage was allowed to connect to existing municipal storm drainage via a proposed service road. This connection of the service road located within the Lafayette West Industrial Park will provide additional access to local roads and nearby businesses. The complete build-out of the service road was part of a long-term plan envisioned since the property was subdivided in 1983, when an easement was established allowing access and use to all abutting parcels. The service road will improve access to all parcels along the service road, provide more direct access to Portsmouth Regional Hospital for doctors and patients, and also alleviate some traffic on the heavily traveled corridor,” continued Lorden.

TFMoran Celebrates at the Wild West BOB Awards Event

A group of TFMoran staff, and their families, celebrated at the Wild West themed BOB Awards on Thursday, March 5, at the Grappone Conference Center in Concord. NHBR did an amazing job creating the wild west atmosphere with authentic looking props and staged areas. We hung out next to the TFMoran sponsored Town Jail, and even had a few photo ops. TFM’s Chief Operating Officer, Dylan Cruess, voluntarily went behind bars long enough to snap a photo for the web site post.

TFMoran is much obliged to our clients, employees and NHBR readers for selecting us as the “Best of Business” in  the Engineering category for 3 years in a row. New Hampshire Business Review’s BOB Awards reader’s survey honors the “best of business” in New Hampshire in over 90 categories. “With 2,700 ballots cast for the 2015 Awards, the BOBs continue to be considered a standard of excellence in New Hampshire,” said Jeff Feingold, editor of NHBR. Take a look at the list of all the BOB Award winners!

“It is a great honor that we have won three years in a row,” says Robert Duval, president of TFMoran. “This clearly shows that our civil, structural and traffic engineers, surveyors and landscape architects are focused on client service and delivering the best engineering solutions possible.  And, with our recent acquisition of MSC Civil Engineers & Land Surveyors in Portsmouth, we can offer award winning professional services to the seacoast region.”

A portion of the proceeds benefited New Horizons for NH, and as a bonus, the winner of the 50/50 raffle donated her prize of over $300 back to New Horizons!

Robert Duval writes article for New England Real Estate Journal.

The January 23-29, 2015 issue of New England Real Estate Journal features an article written by TFMoran’s President, Robert Duval, PE entitled “Understanding urban runoff issues if you own or develop shopping centers.”

An excerpt from the article:

In the meantime, paying close attention to stormwater issues in new development, monitoring construction stormwater plans closely, and participation in effective voluntary efforts, such as better maintenance programs and partnering with community programs can help improve the health of impaired water bodies over time, perhaps avoiding the need for mandatory retrofit programs, and at the same time, providing a cleaner, more healthful environment for us all.
