Congratulations to Bank of NH Stage for receiving a Plan NH 2020 Merit Award of Excellence

TFMoran is honored to be a part of the award-winning project team for the renovation and rehabilitation of the historic Concord Theatre, now known as Bank of NH Stage. The theatre, owned by the Capitol Center for the Arts, was a recent recipient of the Plan NH 2020 Merit Award of Excellence.  The project team included the developer The Duprey Companies;  construction manager Milestone Engineering and Construction; and architect Dennis Mires, PA The Architects. TFMoran provided both civil and structural engineering services for the preservation of the 140-year-old building located on South Main Street.

Plan NH describes the award-winning Bank of NH Stage:

“In spite of the challenges of working with such an old building to get it to where they wanted, today the venue is eclectic and flexible.  It can easily be walked or biked to from within the downtown, and it is on a bus route.  In addition, its flexible space means that a younger generation can stand and move with its music – or, other performances can be done in a more intimate setting.  It is a welcome addition to an already-vibrant downtown.”

Each year, Plan NH holds its annual Merit Award Program to honor exemplary built environment projects that have a positive impact on the community. All nominations are reviewed by a jury of engineers, planners, architects, and others. The jury selects projects that demonstrate social responsibility, Smart Growth principals, and creative approaches to collaboration and cooperation. This year, due to covid-19 pandemic, the presentation was held virtually.

Congratulations to the other 2020 recipients of the Plan NH Merit Award of Excellence:  MoCo Arts (Keene)23 Ammonoosuc (Littleton);  and Madbury Public Library

TFMoran’s Nick Golon participates in Business NH Magazine Roundtable

Senior Project Manager Nick Golon, PE participated in Business NH Magazine’s roundtable discussion “Construction in the Age of COVID”, published in October 2020. Business NH gathered construction industry leaders for a virtual discussion of the challenges and opportunities their industry has experienced throughout the pandemic.

Topics covered include new and current opportunities, future uncertainty, supply chain issues, workforce challenges, company culture, regulatory climate, and what the future looks like for the construction industry. Addressing company culture and the toll the pandemic has taken on employees and their families, Nick says that “You’ve got to show empathy and find a solution that works for the company and for your people”. Additionally, he tells Business NH that “We had to re-evaluate and figure out how to keep our people busy. We’ve been very blessed that we have been able to do so.”

The article also featured one of TFMoran’s civil engineering and landscape architecture projects nearing completion, The Chandler Apartments, located at Goffe Mill Plaza on South River Road in Bedford.

Congrats to NeighborWorks® Southern New Hampshire for a successful Manchester West Side RENEW project!

As a proud supporter, TFMoran’s Dylan Cruess, COO was invited by Executive Director Robert Tourigny of NeighborWorks® Southern New Hampshire to the unveiling of their completed West Side RENEW project at 459 Granite Street in Manchester. Typically, a ribbon-cutting ceremony would have marked the completion of this special project, but due to the current pandemic situation, instead of a group gathering, the property was shown social-distanced to the fundraisers who helped make this redeveloped housing project possible. Last fall TFMoran donated $5,000 in support of this important housing initiative to redevelop and preserve properties on Manchester’s West Side. The building was previously an uninhabitable and was purchased at a tax auction from the City of Manchester in 2018. Through a variety of funding sources and with the help of the business community, 459 Granite Street, with its cheery yellow doors, is now home to four working families. The one and two-bedroom affordable-apartment rentals include heat and hot water for between $1,000 and $1,050 per month.

Congratulations to NeighborWorks® Southern New Hampshire for receiving the “2020 Housing for Everyone” award by the TD Charitable Foundation in support of the West Side RENEW initiative!
