Nick Golon Reflects on the Year in NEREJ’s Review Spotlight

New England Real Estate Journal‘s December 30 issue features a Year in Review Spotlight, with input from numerous professionals across the Real Estate industry. Principal and Civil Department Manager Nick Golon gave his thoughts on the year with insight into his accomplishments and career in 2022.

What was your most important professional accomplishment or most notable project, deal, or transaction in 2022?
After over a year and a half to secure permits, the Granite Woods Commerce Center adjacent to exit 11 on I-93 in Hooksett, N.H. broke ground in the fall of 2022. This state-of-the-art 500,000 s/f class A warehouse required us to solve immensely complicated permitting and infrastructure challenges. As a result of this project, essential municipal water and sewer services are being extended, over 400 acres of permanent conservation land was secured, and much-needed industrial space will be delivered to the Southern N.H. market.

How has your career path changed in 2022?
After being welcomed in to the TFMoran ownership team in 2020, at the end of 2022, I transitioned to the role of civil department manager with Jeff Kevan’s retirement after nearly 30 years of service with TFM. Having the opportunity to play an integral role in the direction of a company with a successful track record of providing outstanding engineering services in our industry for over 50 years is exactly where I want to be in my career!

Bedford Staff Takes an Afternoon Break to Celebrate the Holidays

TFMoran’s Bedford employees showed their spirit at the TGIF holiday party, held last Friday just before our holiday break. Our favorite dishes from the Puritan Back Room were served along with some sweet homemade treats like sugar cookies, peppermint bark, and ginger snaps. A beautiful gingerbread house that Julia and Sophie decorated was also on display.

Those up for a fun activity enjoyed gift-unwrapping games hoping the box they opened would contain a prize! We played the “lucky layer game” where each participant gets to unwrap one layer of the gift and pass it on! Jason Hill was the lucky person to open the last layer, revealing a $25 gift card! We also played “name that holiday tune”, which Sophie and Rich both won!

Happy Holidays from all of us at TFM!
