Profile: Sophie Haddock Landscape Designer & Assistant Land Planner | TFMoran
Published in High Profile Monthly’s Women In Construction Supplement
Sophie Haddock is a landscape designer and assistant land planner at TFMoran. She holds a bachelor’s degree in landscape architecture with a minor in community planning from the University of Rhode Island. She also serves as treasurer of Granite State Landscape Architects (GSLA).
Sophie’s role at TFMoran is to plan and design landscaping projects, working to bring balance to the site and harmonize with its setting. This year, she helped the Town of Derry redesign and revitalize a historic public park. Sophie’s role included design of a new playground, water fountain, “spray-ground” splash pad, and nature trails for all ages to enjoy. Her favorite part of the job is designing spaces that benefit people, as well as their environment and ecosystems.
Sophie utilizes Lumion, Sketchup, and AutoCAD to create lifelike context in her landscape designs by turning any space into a 3D model. By showing the plants’ sizes, colors, and textures the designer can find the perfect result before reflecting that onto a landscape plan to help clients and contractors better understand how their project will turn out.
In her free time, Sophie feeds her passion for environmentalism. She and her husband recently purchased their first home which was overrun with invasive plants. They have enjoyed restoring its natural charm by planting native species, starting new gardens, and encouraging biodiversity. Sophie also enjoys reading, baking, and spending time with family and friends.
February 19-25 is National Engineers Week, and TFMoran is celebrating the hard work of our over 30 Civil, Structural, and Traffic Engineers! This week is promoted annually by Discover E, an ASCE partner, to promote the profession and celebrate engineers by showing the world the essential work engineers contribute to our everyday lives.
This year’s theme is “Creating the Future”! Engineers play a vital role in innovating solutions to global challenges that impact future generations. By working together to develop new technologies, products, and opportunities, engineers create new possibilities that make the world better. Let’s inspire the next generation by celebrating how engineers create the future!
TFMoran is a proud supporter of New Hampshire schools. As part of our community outreach, we recently contributed $10,000 to the New Hampshire Children’s Scholarship Fund, an Education Tax Credit Scholarship. This financial assistance is available to New Hampshire children of low- and moderate-income families to attend K-12 schools that best fit their needs. These scholarships can apply to private schools, out-of-district schools, and homeschooling, which makes these options more financially available.
Since the 2016-2017 school year, The Children’s Scholarship Fund of New Hampshire has awarded over $9,117,931 in scholarships to students.
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!
TFMoran sponsored ASCE-NH‘s 5th annual Engineers Day Conference held December 6-8. The conference offers attendees the opportunity to earn 6 Professional Development Hours (PDHs), and all proceeds go to the ASCE-NH Scholarship Fund.
This year’s conference raised over $12,000 in scholarship opportunities for future engineers!
