A Big “Thank You” from the Philippines as TFMoran donates to “Help the Hunger”

Dahriz Colwell

Dahriz Colwell

The village of Mangagoy Bislig, Philippines couldn’t be more appreciative, having received much needed food supplies as their families struggle during this Coronavirus pandamic. The bags of food given to each family were provided by donations made through a GoFundMe page called “Help the Hunger” created by Dahriz Colwell. Dahriz is the wife of TFMoran’s seacoast division manager and a principal of the company, Corey Colwell, LLS.

The Philippines village is Dahriz’s hometown and she wanted to help in anyway she could.  Dahriz got busy at her sewing machine creating masks that she donated to help keep her neighbors and others stay safe during the pandemic crisis.  In turn, people offered to pay for their masks. Though the masks were free, Dahriz offered a suggestion of donating to her cause through the GoFundMe page. And, people were glad to do so, making a difference in many lives who are less fortunate.

TFMoran made a $500 contribution as a thank you to Dahriz for supplying TFMoran’s Bedford and Portsmouth offices with masks for every employee. To date $1,155 has been raised as a result of Dahriz’s mask-making efforts. 100% of the proceeds go directly to food for her hometown village.

TFMoran was thrilled to receive photos from Dahriz of the smiling village residents gratefully receiving colorful bags filled with much needed food supplies, and for their extra effort in making a “Thank You” banner and taking photos. We appreciate Dahriz and the Colwell family for their compassionate community involvement, locally and in the Philippines.

TFMoran engineers are working for developers Interchange Development, LLC to design and permit a proposed multi-phase mixed-use development to be known as Concord Crossing II on Whitney Road near I93 Exit 17. The 43-acre site would be one of the largest recent mixed-use developments in central New Hampshire.

New Survey Drone Services are Off the Ground!

Eric Salovitch, TFMoran Certified Drone Pilot

 

TFMoran is excited to announce we have launched new survey services via drone, operated by Survey Technician and FAA Part 107 Certified Pilot, Eric Salovitch, SIT. Eric works out of TFMoran’s Seacoast Division office and is available for any project that would benefit from this new technology.


New Drone Survey Services include:

  • Aerial Mapping
  • Aerial Imagery
  • Structural Inspections
  • Construction Monitoring
  • Volume Calculations
  • Video Inspections
  • Mapping for Conceptual Design

TFMoran’s first drone project was to produce a topographic survey on a private residential road to depict low areas which are causing drainage issues. The area of interest was relatively flat with no obvious areas of relief. TFMoran were able to utilize UAV technology to limit the time the field crew had to spend in the roadway. We were able to capture millions of points along the roadway. That data was adjusted to survey grade control. The client is now not only able to identify low points in the pavement solving their drainage issues, but can also identify every pothole along the stretch of road.

There are many advantages of using UAV.  We were able to keep field crews safe and out of the traveled way. We were able to provide the client with more data. We have a survey grade location every 0.3’ compared to conventional data which is 45’ +/-. Since this is a private community, TFMoran provided a few aerial images to the client which is a by-product of our survey. It doesn’t take us any additional time to capture these photos and is a great complimentary product.

We are looking forward to our next Aerial Mapping project!

TFMoran supports mask-making efforts to Help the Hunger cause

Dahriz Colwell

Dahriz Colwell

TFMoran’s seacoast division manager and a principal of the company, Corey Colwell, LLS, is proud to share some positive and personal news amid this COVID-19 pandemic. His wife, Dahriz Colwell, has been busy at her sewing machine creating masks that she donates to help keep people safe during the pandemic. Dahriz has now created over 40 assorted colors and patterns of masks to choose from and has made over 350 masks since she started this initiative in early March. The masks are hand-wash and air-dry only because of the interfacing filter material in the middle. Not only has Dahriz supplied her husband’s Portsmouth office staff with enough masks, but also the TFMoran corporate office in Bedford, NH.

Dahriz continues to set up a table in their neighborhood for anyone who would like a free mask. Though her masks are offered at no cost, many of their neighbors have generously donated more than $400 so far, and TFMoran has made a $500 contribution to her cause. Dahriz’s cause is very special and dear to her heart, and by making these masks she is bringing awareness of her cause to others who want to help. Dahriz’s hometown village in the Philippines desperately needs help to feed their struggling families during this pandemic. By creating a GoFundMe page called “Help the Hunger”, Dahriz hopes this will be an easy way for people to make a donation.

“We are very fortunate to be living in a good town, safe state and country that provide for those in need. I feel blessed. There are areas of the world not so fortunate. My hometown of Mangagoy Bislig, Philippines is a good example. The town and most of the country is shut down, no work and little to no government help. We are organizing a fund raiser to help feed those less fortunate than us. 100% of all proceeds will go to feed the hungry and their struggling families. Any amount you can contribute to this cause is greatly appreciated.”
– Dahriz Colwell

Dahriz has all the support of her family and friends in her efforts of making a difference in people’s lives during these challenging times. “I think this a great cause, I am proud of her for all that she has done,” says her husband Corey. “Since we were married 16 years ago, she has been helping her village in any way that we can afford. This is the hardest they have been hit in a long time.”

Tristan ColwellEven their 5-year old son Tristan is happy to help, from setting up the mask display table in the neighborhood, to cutting fabric and even a little sewing. Every little bit helps to make a difference.
