Dylan Cruess in NH’s First Graduating Class of Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Program

Congratulations to TFMoran’s COO, Dylan Cruess for graduating from the 2019 Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Program that took place at NHTI Concord’s Community College, on Thursday, October 10th.  Dylan was one of 37 scholars from nine New Hampshire counties representing a diverse range of industries who was selected for New Hampshire’s inaugural class. Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Program partners with the Community College System of New Hampshire and Manchester Community College who hosts the three-month long intensive class. Manchester’s Mayor Joyce Craig and New Hampshire Senator Jeanne Shaheen were on-hand to congratulate the members of New Hampshire’s first graduating class.

The Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses is an investment to help entrepreneurs create jobs and provide greater access to education and business support. To date, the program has more than 8,800 business owners that have graduated across all 50 states. Goldman Sachs is strategic in their planning for the program to ensure that the small business owners participating in the program, leave with a new perspective on how to consistently grow their revenues. While attending this course, Dylan received one-on-one expert advice and can apply that to TFMoran’s business plan.

In the 10,000 Small Businesses Program, it has shown that since 2016 the percentage of U.S. Small Businesses grew by 47%. The results have also shown that after 30 months, the percentage of the 10,000 Small Businesses alumni have added jobs in their businesses by 56.5%. Goldman Sachs ensures that all participants are involved and receive the one-on-one time, as well as participating in groups to listen to the advice of others. What alumni can take away is not only working on your business, but working on your business to make it better and how to manage for growth.

Congratulations to the New Hampshire Class of 2019!

TFMoran’s Eric Salovitch breaks personal record in Dover’s Apple Harvest Day 5K

Eric Salovitch represented TFMoran’s Portsmouth office at the Apple Harvest Day 5K Road Race on Saturday, October 5th. The road race had an impressive 570 runners participating this year! Congratulations to Eric who placed 79th overall, and 10th in his division. Eric’s time: 23:53, finally breaking his 24-minute 5K record! The race is part of an all-day family festival in downtown Dover, put on by the Greater Dover Chamber of Commerce. Apple Harvest Day first started back in 1985 and now draws more than 60,000 people and 350 vendors.  People travel from all around to take part in family fun activities, live music, arts and crafts, and plenty of delicious food.

Other festival activities included a row-a-thon competition, where participants must row as many meters as possible within a minute. TFMoran (Eric) held the top spot for the row-a-thon for most of the day, setting the stage at 347 meters – coming very close to a win! He fought until the end, when his friend passed him by 1 meter.

When not participating in festival competitions, Eric and his wife explored Apple Harvest Day while enjoying the outdoors and the healthy lifestyle-theme. Thanks to Eric and his wife for representing TFMoran and staying involved with their community!

TFMoran donates $5,000 to support NeighborWorks® Southern New Hampshire West Side RENEW initiative

TFMoran has donated $5,000 to NeighborWorks® Southern New Hampshire in support of West Side RENEW, an initiative to redevelop and preserve properties in significant decline or in need of capital improvements on Manchester’s West Side.

West Side RENEW complements NeighborWorks® Southern New Hampshire’s overarching community building mission in this area of Manchester, which began in 2006 with the West Granite Revitalization Initiative that resulted in more than $5 million in investment over nine years to increase the home ownership rate, expand the number of owner occupied multi-family properties, and reduce neighborhood density.

The current effort continues NeighborWorks® Southern New Hampshire’s focus on eliminating or redeveloping dilapidated or problem properties in the area and increasing the number of affordable rental units. TFMoran’s contribution will support the redevelopment of 459 Granite Street to create 4 new affordable rental apartments in a currently uninhabitable building.

2019 “Tour De Manch” Breaks Record with nearly 70 Bike Riders supporting Conservation

Bike enthusiasts, the Manchester Conservation Commission, their volunteers and sponsors celebrated another great success when riders took to the streets of Manchester for this year’s “Tour De Manch”!  Also known as the Manchester Bike Tour, the event is the Commission’s yearly fundraiser to promote their efforts as stewards of Manchester’s natural resources.

This year nearly 70 riders (a Bike Tour record!) participated in the 30 to 40-mile bike tour around the Queen City.  Riders, who began at Eversource Energy Park and looped around and back to the Overlook at Eversource on the Merrimack River were treated to a perfect day of weather with sunny skies and temperatures in the low 60’s, a morning coffee courtesy of Café la Reine, an after ride meal graciously donated by the Puritan Backroom and support throughout the ride by volunteers from Jake’s Bike Shop.  “It was the first year we ran out of chicken tenders,” quoted event Chairperson, and TFMoran Senior Project Manager Nick Golon, PE, “so we know the Tour is growing”.

Riders once again enjoyed sights throughout the City, including Rock Rimmon, the Piscataquog Rail Trail, Nutts Pond Recreation Trail, the Aviation Museum of New Hampshire, Lake Massabesic and the historic Weston Observatory.  With the continued growth of the Tour the Conservation Commission is looking to add new elements next year, and are hopeful the improvements will continue to increase ridership and bring a greater understanding to the need to protect Manchester’s natural resources.

TFMoran is proud to be one of the sponsors of this fun and important event. A big “Thank You” goes out to TFMoran’s Nick Golon for chairing this annual fundraiser since 2014!

SNHU Millyard Parking Garage

TFMoran provides civil/structural design for parking complex to serve Millyard growth

While it may seem unusual to compare a construction project to a dance, progress on the newly completed Southern New Hampshire University Milllyard Parking Garage was a delicate balance necessitating carefully calculated timing throughout the process.

“It was a very compact site,” says Bob Duval, president of TFMoran — which provided survey, civil engineering, structural engineering, site permitting and landscape architectural services. “There was little to no adjacent land available for staging and temporary construction operations. The site had to be broken up into a chess board of construction phasing.” Due to strict space limitations on-site, the garage containing approximately 1,700 parking spaces, abutting South Commercial Street, the Merrimack River and the Langer Place Mill in the south end of the Millyard, was approached with a careful eye on the next move, every step of the way. Harvey Construction served as construction manager on the project. Continue Reading →
