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

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!

TFMoran Sponsors The Palace Theatre “Forever Emma” Golf Classic

TFMoran was a proud sponsor of the Palace Theatre “Forever Emma” Golf Classic to benefit the Forever Emma Scholarship Fund. The scholarship fund was created in memory of Bedford, NH resident Emma Bechert, a fourteen-year-old girl with a passion for theater who called the Palace Theatre her second home. Emma died in 2016 following a lengthy battle with cancer. The scholarship is used to help other children become involved in the arts.

The tournament was held on a beautiful day at the Passaconaway Country Club in Litchfield, NH. The tournament included a shotgun start with a scramble format, 19th hole reception, barbecue lunch, awards, and a raffle. TFMoran’s Dan Blais was out on the course with his teammates hoping to place in the top 3. Though, they didn’t quite make it, Dan and his friends had a great time while raising money for children’s theater.

Congratulations to the Top 3!

TFMoran Sponsors American Society of Civil Engineers’ New Hampshire Scholarship Golf Outing

On August 21st, 2020, the American Society of Civil Engineers New Hampshire Section (ASCE-NH) hosted their 2020 Annual Scholarship Golf Outing. The scholarship program was started in 2000 to encourage high school students to pursue an engineering degree (in any discipline, not just civil).  Annually, ASCE-NH awards scholarships to graduating high school seniors and civil engineering students at the University of New Hampshire, with the value of the scholarship’s dependent on the success of their fund raising.  ASCE-NH issued a record $20,000 in scholarships in 2020 and is hoping to at least match that effort in 2021.

The tournament was held at the Beaver Meadow Golf Club in Concord, NH. Due to Covid-19, special precautions were observed promoting social distancing and mask use which resulted in a safe and fun day for all those that participated.  The tournament included a continental breakfast, shotgun start, lunch, raffle, contests, and games. TFMoran Senior Project Manager and ASCE-NH Treasurer, Nick Golon played in the tournament this year and came home with a new golf club courtesy of the raffle.  The TFM Team didn’t finish first but scored a rare Eagle (two under par) on a par 4 courtesy of Kurt Nelson knocking in a 120-yard chip.  That shot along with the fantastic weather made for a great day for the Team.

TFMoran was a proud PLATINUM Sponsor of this ASCE-NH Scholarship fund raising event, along with Continental Paving and WSP.

Thank you to ASCE-NH for supporting young and aspiring engineers and putting on another great event!
