TFMoran Sponsored FIRST Robotics Team Reaches New England FIRST District Championship!

TFMoran is sponsoring Hopkinton High School and John Stark Regional High School’s FIRST Robotics Team OzRam 1922 for the 2024 Season. The team consists of students from Weare, Henniker, and Hopkinton, participating in the global FIRST Robotics Program. Each season, the team builds a robot from materials including mechanical gears, motors, and software to compete with other regional and worldwide teams in the yearly FIRST Robotics Challenge.

Recently, the team competed in the Greater Boston District Event in Revere, MA on March 23rd and 24th. The team competed against 38 other teams from around New England, showcasing their robot to perform game-scoring tasks in a time-limited period. During the first match in the quarterfinals, the match alliance (3 teams) scored the highest combined score in the world!

OzRam finished in 6th place, securing their place to compete in the NE FIRST District Championship, which hosts top teams for a weekend at The Big E in West Springfield, MA, from April 3rd through 6th.

This program relies on financial sponsorships to support team activities. Sponsorship allows the team to attend local, regional (and hopefully international) events, update components for their robots, equip their lab, and help promote STEM!

Best of luck at the NE FIRST District Championships, OzRam 1922!


NEREJ Project of the Month: Sturdy Memorial Hospital Operating and Central Sterilization Suites

TFMoran structural engineers worked with Maugel DeStefano Architects to complete a renovation project at Sturdy Memorial Hospital in Attleboro, MA. The recently completed project is featured as Project of the Month in New England Real Estate Journal’s April 2024 issue.

The project included relocating and modernizing the hospital’s central sterilization processing and operating suites to a larger space. Moving the sterilization suite to this new space increased processing volume, provided a direct connection to the existing operating suite, and added space for same-day surgery pre- and post-operative suites. A new operating room, nurse station, offices, anesthesia workroom, sterile storage, and expanded equipment storage were added to the existing operating suite.

“Maugel DeStefano Architects’ healthcare design team, together with Columbia  and BR+A Engineers, has successfully undertaken substantial renovations in multiple areas of Sturdy Memorial Hospital, including the modernization of CT imaging, same day surgery, inpatient pharmacy, and LDRP,” said architect Colby Cavanagh, healthcare studio lead at Maugel DeStefano Architects. “We are pleased that our collective accomplishments have significantly enhanced the patient experience and improved the comfort and efficiency for Sturdy’s dedicated staff.”
