TFMoran principals give thanks at the Annual Harvest Lunch on the campus of SNHU

The principals of TFMoran, Bob Duval, Dylan Cruess, Jeff Kevan, Paul Sbacchi and Corey Colwell, thanked their staff this holiday season by hosting the annual “Harvest Lunch” on the day before Thanksgiving. This year the lunch was held on the campus of Southern New Hampshire University at the new Gustafson Center. The principals thought it would be a nice opportunity for the staff to see many of the new projects on campus that TFMoran engineers, surveyors and landscape architects have provided services for, including the Gustafson Center. TFMoran’s Portsmouth division joined in the festive celebration, making the attendance around 70 people.

The event started with a delightful assortment of appetizers and beverages during the social hour, and a group photo taken by John Gauvin of Studio One. Sodexo caterers prepared a holiday lunch buffet which included a sirloin carving station, chicken parmesan served with pasta, and stuffed portobello mushrooms, accompanied by roasted potatoes, harvest salad and butternut squash soup. After lunch, the staff was treated to a dessert tri-level tray of pumpkin whoopee pies, raspberry mousse in chocolate cups, and strawberry cream eclairs. Everything was delightful!

TFMoran’s president Bob Duval followed the lunch with a speech on his gratitude towards the entire team in providing the hard work and dedication that makes TFMoran a success. He gave special thanks to Administrative Assistant, Joe Sears, for his 40 dedicated years to TFMoran. Bob presented Joe with a gift of appreciation, and wished him the best as he retires in December.

 

Concluding the lunch was COO, Dylan Cruess who spoke of the company’s many accomplishments over the past year, including the NHBR Best of Business Award in Engineering for the 5th straight year, and the 2017 Business Excellence Award.  Dylan attributed the recognition TFMoran receives from the community to the involvement of the staff, inside and outside of work.

Many thanks to Southern New Hampshire University and Sodexo for providing a great venue for this special event. It is always a great way to lead into the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, as we give thanks to our family and friends.

SNHU Ribbon Cutting for New Quad

On Monday, September 21, 2015 TFMoran Civil Project Engineers Jeff Kevan and Tucker McCarthy, along with TFMoran’s Senior Landscape Planner/Designer Mike Krzeminski joined the Southern New Hampshire University campus community in celebrating the grand opening of the new Quad.  It was a perfect sunny day to hold the ribbon cutting ceremony lead by President Paul LeBlanc, who was accompanied by the Dean of Students and Student Government Association President. It seemed fitting flying discs of the school colors blue and yellow were being thrown by students throughout the vibrant green space, where a parking lot once occupied. The new addition of a black metal archway at the top of the stairs, displays the University’s iconic leaf symbol following the curve. And, at the foot of the stairs, a large black leaf is engraved in a granite circle, with paths leading from it in three directions. Students tried out the new benches, walkways and new grass areas while enjoying hot dogs and ice cream. We can certainly say a good time was had by all!

TFMoran worked with the University in providing conceptual designs, landscape architecture, land surveying, permitting and civil engineering services to convert the old parking lot into a new green space. The Quad is located in the center of the campus, across from the new Learning Commons and Library, and Dining Hall, where there is a pedestrian light for safe crossing on North River Road. Leighton A. White, Inc. of Milford was the site work contractor.
