TFMoran Underway on Tru by Hilton and T-Bones Restaurant

Concord, NH -Construction is well-underway at the site of the former Days Inn on South Main Street in Concord, NH, where TFMoran is working closely with Duprey Hospitality and Great NH Restaurants.

The site will be the location of a Tru by Hilton hotel for Duprey Hospitality, as well as T-Bones for Great NH Restaurants. When completed, both hotel and restaurant are expected to be a popular destination for NH tourists and locals because of their convenient location off Interstate 93.

Construction has begun for the Tru by Hilton, a four-story hotel, with 85 guest rooms and plenty of functional public space. Tru is described as a brand-new hotel experience from Hilton that’s vibrant, affordable and young-at-heart.  The building features a 2,000 s/f open concept lobby with multiple areas for guests to work, eat and lounge. The size of guest rooms has been minimized with an efficient design including open closets, rolling desks, and plenty of storage and power outlets. TFMoran has teamed with Opechee Construction and is providing civil and traffic engineering, land surveying, landscape architecture and construction administration services. The hotel is expected to open in the Spring of 2020.

The T-Bones restaurant will provide a high-quality dining experience and will be the largest stand-alone T-Bones location for Great NH Restaurants. The restaurant is 9,420 s/f which includes a 260-seat indoor dining room and 35-seat outdoor patio. TFMoran is supporting the efforts of the project architect, Market Square Architects of Portsmouth and builder, Fulcrum Associates of Amherst, where they are providing civil, traffic and structural engineering, land surveying, landscape architecture and construction administration services for the project. A groundbreaking ceremony was recently held at the site to officially welcome the restaurant which is set to open in the winter of 2020.

TFMoran’s Eversource Project featured in the Union Leader

TFMoran is providing civil and traffic engineering, land surveying and landscape architecture services for two Eversource facilities located in Nashua, New Hampshire. TFMoran Senior Project Manager Nick Golon, PE was quoted in the Union Leader about the planned upgrades.

The project includes the possible relocating of the millyard substation located on the Pine street extension, to a city-owned site adjacent to the current location. The Nashua City Planning Board recently approved of the plan, but is also awaiting the approval of the Board of Aldermen in order to move forward. The millyard substation has been in use since 1949, and could use updates as the facility is becoming increasingly unreliable. If all goes to plan, construction is expected to start in 2020 following a ground breaking ceremony to be held in January. TFMoran’s Nick Golon explained the proposed substation will be about 14,000 s/f and include a new access road and utility poles, with its completion anticipated later next year.

Eversource also proposed renovations for the current Work Center located on Amherst Street, which has been approved as well. The project includes renovations of the existing structure, and the construction of a new 14,500 s/f garage in the rear of the building. Nick stated the Work Center was built in the late 1950s, and is an antiquated structure that needs updating.

Eversource to upgrade two of its facilities in Nashua

by Kimberly Houghton Union Leader Correspondent

NASHUA — Eversource Energy is preparing for two major projects aimed to improve its aging infrastructure in the city.

The Nashua City Planning Board recently approved the two projects — one at the utility company’s substation in the millyard and the other at its existing work center on Amherst Street.

Eversource Energy is hoping to relocate its millyard substation on the Pine Street Extension to a city-owned parcel that abuts the current structure. Although planning officials have approved the site plan, the Board of Aldermen must also approve the proposal in order for the project to move forward.

“Some of the equipment in the substation that we call millyard, off Pine Street Extension, has been in service since 1949 and is becoming increasingly unreliable,” said Alan Rowe, Eversource project manager.

After speaking with representatives from the city, an identical parcel of land on an adjacent parcel was identified as a potential land swap, according to Rowe.

This land swap, if given the green light from aldermen, will allow Eversource to relocate some of its lines, while also creating a continuous, city-owned parcel that could be used for future development, he said.

Nick Golon, an engineer with TFMoran, said the new power substation will be about 14,000 square feet, and will include a new access road, utility poles and a chain link fence.

Construction is expected to start in 2020, and be completed by the end of the year. The existing substation will then be demolished, he explained.

“We are starting preliminary engineering,” said Rowe, adding Eversource would like to break ground on the project in January.

Eversource Energy has also submitted a second site plan for its existing work center at 370 Amherst St. Earlier this month, the planning board approved the project, which includes renovations to the current structure and a new, 14,500 square feet garage.

Golon said Eversource’s Nashua Area Work Center was built in the late 1950s, and is an antiquated structure that needs updating.

The project includes renovating the existing garage into office space, and then constructing a new garage in the rear of the parcel where line trucks will be stored, he said.

Although Eversource is not looking to add any employees at the site, Golon said the plan will provide a more strategic location for workers and the storage of vehicles.

“The expansion and renovation will reuse the existing building while adding a similar architectural appearance for the addition,” Linda McGhee, deputy planning manager, wrote in a staff report to the Planning Board.

Celebrating the renovation of historic Concord Theatre – now the Bank of New Hampshire Stage

A celebration was held on Saturday, July 13th for the completion of the newly renovated historic Concord Theatre- now the Bank of New Hampshire Stage. TFMoran’s Sr. Project Manager, Nick Golon, PE and his family attended the picnic dinner, and 90’s theme dance party courtesy of Duprey Hospitality, to celebrate the stage’s completion. The Bank of New Hampshire Stage is located on South Main Street in Concord, and is now owned by The Capitol Center for the Arts, located just down the road.

TFMoran structural and civil engineers worked closely with Dennis Mires P.A. The Architects and Milestone Engineering and Construction to provide civil and structural engineering services for the project.

Originally a bakery started in the mid-1800’s, The Concord Theatre building was converted to a movie theatre which ran from the 1930s to the mid 1990’s. The property also housed various small businesses more recently. However, the main movie theatre has been vacant for many years. The renovation project will create a flexible event venue for the Capitol Center for the Arts and a box office.

The existing building was in need of repair and rehabilitation. Consequently, the project includes significant structural upgrades and repairs to the building framing. Outdated floor, roof and wall framing will be reinforced or replaced. Additionally, an interior balcony and new cantilevered marquee will be added.

A small addition was added on the building’s south side for a new stair and elevator. The attractive addition was built in conjunction with functional and aesthetic improvements to the building’s site. New pavement, plantings, seating and a loading area were part of the project.
