Located on the first floor of the building will also be a fitness center, game room, and a common “Main Street”. The project architects are Mackey Mitchell of St. Louis, MO and Lavallee Brensinger of Manchester, NH, and the general contractor is Whiting Turner of Framingham, MA.

TFM Bedford Mentors 3 Interns for the Summer

TFM Bedford Mentors 3 Interns for the Summer

School’s out and interns are in here at the TFMoran Bedford office.  Jack Watton, Kelsie Gagner, and Hannah Kelsey are TFM’s 2017 summer interns.  Each of them operates in a different department under a knowledgeable and experienced supervisor/mentor. Jack attends the University of New Hampshire Durham and will obtain a BS in Civil Engineering in the spring of 2018. His work takes place in the civil engineering department working under Principal Jeff Kevan. Jack is being familiarized with AutoCAD, HydroCAD, and all aspects of civil engineering. Last year Jack interned in our surveying department, so he is familiar with the staff and expectations of TFM. Kelsie is attending Southern New Hampshire University working towards a BS in Business Administration for the spring of 2018. She interns in the marketing department under Marketing Coordinator Susan Bartley. Kelsie is designated tasks based on the events TFM attends or important upcoming happenings. She also is given the independence to come up with new and creative marketing strategies for TFMoran. Hannah is currently attending Smith College and will obtain a BS in Civil Engineering in 2021. She works under Senior Project Manager Dan Blais in the stormwater department, allowing her to visit current job sites and get a feel for the environmental engineering portion of the company. This is Hannah’s second year with TFM, as she did her independent senior project internship here for The Derryfield School.

 We acknowledge the importance of interns here at TFM, as they are teaching us as much as we are teaching them. Becoming familiarized with millennia’s and generation Y is a necessity as the minds of young people have changed, bringing new demands and ideas of what a workplace should be like. Technology is advancing at rapid speed, and it’s hard for those who have not grown up surrounded by it to adapt. With the younger generation, they are able to mold and mend to the new technologies being thrown at them every day. Having interns teaches companies what exactly future employees are looking for, and what they’re not looking for. This is the most interns we’ve had at TFM at one time, we are honored to have them here and support the local colleges and universities. Having student interns creates a form of engagement between young people and a potential career; it gives them a taste of what the “adult world” is like. Not only that, but internships are the key to building experience in an intern, and we are proud to say that their experience will come from us!
