Dylan Cruess, COO of TFMoran, honored as one of New Hampshire’s Most Influential Business Leaders

Congratulations to TFMoran’s Chief Operating Officer, Dylan Cruess, who was selected as one of New Hampshire’s 200 Most Influential Business Leaders “New Hampshire 200” by New Hampshire Business Review. TFMoran’s principals, along with members of Dylan’s family, attended the New Hampshire 200 Reception, proudly supporting him for this great honor. The celebration was held on October 30, 2019 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Manchester for the 200 prominent individuals featured in the NHBR inaugural publication, “New Hampshire 200”.

New Hampshire Business Review conducted a year-long research initiative led by the editors, who dove into looking for the state’s most influential business leaders in the private sector, across major industries. In choosing the individuals for New Hampshire 200, the editors of the NHBR collected suggestions and nominations from industry contacts throughout the state to determine the individuals who have had the greatest impact on New Hampshire’s economy, business climate and quality of life. The business leaders selected have a real influence within their professions, industries and communities, along with making an important and lasting imprint where they live and work.

All the selected individuals for New Hampshire 200 were asked to complete a questionnaire that would allow readers of the publication to get an inside look at the lives of the state’s most influential business leaders. When asked what was the most important business lesson learned, Dylan stated, “There are about two degrees of separation in the business community. It’s vitally important, even in the most challenging circumstances, that you treat people with respect and fairness. Building and maintaining a great reputation and fostering good relationships are crucial.” His advice to those in the same industry is to make a difference in the communities where you live and work. And, to be involved in both industry-related associations, as well as non-profit organizations as an investment that not only benefits your business, but creates a socially conscious culture in your organization.

Dylan joined TFMoran in 2001 after graduating from Bates College earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Economics. He then became an owner and took on the role of Chief Operating Officer when TFMoran was transferred to four senior employees in 2013. Focusing on the future, Dylan ensures that TFMoran’s projects have a positive impact on the greater community and strive to make lives better, while balancing environmental impacts.  To read more from the publication, click on this pdf link NHBR NH 200 – Dylan Cruess ~ TFMoran

We thank New Hampshire Business Review and their staff for putting on this special inaugural event which TFMoran was proud to be a sponsor of.

Congratulations to Dylan and to all of the selected New Hampshire 200 for impacting our beautiful State of New Hampshire in so many positive ways!

TFMoran provides civil/structural design for parking complex to serve Millyard growth

While it may seem unusual to compare a construction project to a dance, progress on the newly completed Southern New Hampshire University Milllyard Parking Garage was a delicate balance necessitating carefully calculated timing throughout the process.

“It was a very compact site,” says Bob Duval, president of TFMoran — which provided survey, civil engineering, structural engineering, site permitting and landscape architectural services. “There was little to no adjacent land available for staging and temporary construction operations. The site had to be broken up into a chess board of construction phasing.” Due to strict space limitations on-site, the garage containing approximately 1,700 parking spaces, abutting South Commercial Street, the Merrimack River and the Langer Place Mill in the south end of the Millyard, was approached with a careful eye on the next move, every step of the way. Harvey Construction served as construction manager on the project. Continue Reading →

TFMoran Underway on Tru by Hilton and T-Bones Restaurant

Concord, NH -Construction is well-underway at the site of the former Days Inn on South Main Street in Concord, NH, where TFMoran is working closely with Duprey Hospitality and Great NH Restaurants.

The site will be the location of a Tru by Hilton hotel for Duprey Hospitality, as well as T-Bones for Great NH Restaurants. When completed, both hotel and restaurant are expected to be a popular destination for NH tourists and locals because of their convenient location off Interstate 93.

Construction has begun for the Tru by Hilton, a four-story hotel, with 85 guest rooms and plenty of functional public space. Tru is described as a brand-new hotel experience from Hilton that’s vibrant, affordable and young-at-heart.  The building features a 2,000 s/f open concept lobby with multiple areas for guests to work, eat and lounge. The size of guest rooms has been minimized with an efficient design including open closets, rolling desks, and plenty of storage and power outlets. TFMoran has teamed with Opechee Construction and is providing civil and traffic engineering, land surveying, landscape architecture and construction administration services. The hotel is expected to open in the Spring of 2020.

The T-Bones restaurant will provide a high-quality dining experience and will be the largest stand-alone T-Bones location for Great NH Restaurants. The restaurant is 9,420 s/f which includes a 260-seat indoor dining room and 35-seat outdoor patio. TFMoran is supporting the efforts of the project architect, Market Square Architects of Portsmouth and builder, Fulcrum Associates of Amherst, where they are providing civil, traffic and structural engineering, land surveying, landscape architecture and construction administration services for the project. A groundbreaking ceremony was recently held at the site to officially welcome the restaurant which is set to open in the winter of 2020.

TFMoran’s Eversource Project featured in the Union Leader

TFMoran is providing civil and traffic engineering, land surveying and landscape architecture services for two Eversource facilities located in Nashua, New Hampshire. TFMoran Senior Project Manager Nick Golon, PE was quoted in the Union Leader about the planned upgrades.

The project includes the possible relocating of the millyard substation located on the Pine street extension, to a city-owned site adjacent to the current location. The Nashua City Planning Board recently approved of the plan, but is also awaiting the approval of the Board of Aldermen in order to move forward. The millyard substation has been in use since 1949, and could use updates as the facility is becoming increasingly unreliable. If all goes to plan, construction is expected to start in 2020 following a ground breaking ceremony to be held in January. TFMoran’s Nick Golon explained the proposed substation will be about 14,000 s/f and include a new access road and utility poles, with its completion anticipated later next year.

Eversource also proposed renovations for the current Work Center located on Amherst Street, which has been approved as well. The project includes renovations of the existing structure, and the construction of a new 14,500 s/f garage in the rear of the building. Nick stated the Work Center was built in the late 1950s, and is an antiquated structure that needs updating.

Eversource to upgrade two of its facilities in Nashua

by Kimberly Houghton Union Leader Correspondent

NASHUA — Eversource Energy is preparing for two major projects aimed to improve its aging infrastructure in the city.

The Nashua City Planning Board recently approved the two projects — one at the utility company’s substation in the millyard and the other at its existing work center on Amherst Street.

Eversource Energy is hoping to relocate its millyard substation on the Pine Street Extension to a city-owned parcel that abuts the current structure. Although planning officials have approved the site plan, the Board of Aldermen must also approve the proposal in order for the project to move forward.

“Some of the equipment in the substation that we call millyard, off Pine Street Extension, has been in service since 1949 and is becoming increasingly unreliable,” said Alan Rowe, Eversource project manager.

After speaking with representatives from the city, an identical parcel of land on an adjacent parcel was identified as a potential land swap, according to Rowe.

This land swap, if given the green light from aldermen, will allow Eversource to relocate some of its lines, while also creating a continuous, city-owned parcel that could be used for future development, he said.

Nick Golon, an engineer with TFMoran, said the new power substation will be about 14,000 square feet, and will include a new access road, utility poles and a chain link fence.

Construction is expected to start in 2020, and be completed by the end of the year. The existing substation will then be demolished, he explained.

“We are starting preliminary engineering,” said Rowe, adding Eversource would like to break ground on the project in January.

Eversource Energy has also submitted a second site plan for its existing work center at 370 Amherst St. Earlier this month, the planning board approved the project, which includes renovations to the current structure and a new, 14,500 square feet garage.

Golon said Eversource’s Nashua Area Work Center was built in the late 1950s, and is an antiquated structure that needs updating.

The project includes renovating the existing garage into office space, and then constructing a new garage in the rear of the parcel where line trucks will be stored, he said.

Although Eversource is not looking to add any employees at the site, Golon said the plan will provide a more strategic location for workers and the storage of vehicles.

“The expansion and renovation will reuse the existing building while adding a similar architectural appearance for the addition,” Linda McGhee, deputy planning manager, wrote in a staff report to the Planning Board.
