Dylan Cruess, COO named on New Hampshire 200 List for Second Time

New Hampshire 200 TFMoran’s Chief Operating Officer, Dylan Cruess was recently selected as one of New Hampshire’s 200 most influential business leaders by NH Business Review. This is Cruess’ second time on the “New Hampshire 200” list, the first was in 2019, the award’s inaugural year.

This designation is a result of a year-long initiative conducted by NH Business Review editors who collected suggestions and nominations from their industry contacts throughout the state to determine the 200 individuals who have made the greatest impact on the Granite State’s economy, business climate and the state as a whole.

All the selected individuals were asked to complete a questionnaire for the New Hampshire 200 second edition publication to be published this fall. When asked what is most exciting about the company’s future, Cruess answered, “Over the past year we adopted an ownership transition plan, added four senior engineers as Principals to our leadership team. The ability for TFMoran to thrive and adapt during this challenging time has confirmed my belief and trust in our extraordinary team.”

Mr. Cruess joined TFMoran, Inc. in 2001 after graduating from Bates College earning a bachelor’s degree in Economics. In 2013 he became an owner and Chief Operating Officer of TFMoran when the company was transferred to four senior employees. Mr. Cruess is very involved in the local community and serves on the board of directors for numerous organizations.

The New Hampshire 200 Reception will be held on December 9, 2021 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Manchester Downtown to recognize the prominent business leaders.

TFMoran Structural Project featured in “Green Energy Times”

TFMoran Structural Engineers provided design services for the Concord Housing Authority Crutchfield Apartments retrofit project in Concord, New Hampshire, which was featured in the Green Energy Times October issue!  Resilient Buildings Group (RBG) of Concord, NH built a team for the Crutchfield Apartments project that included TFMoran for structural engineering.

Some barriers for the project deserved extra attention. The fact that the building is constructed of concrete modules presented difficulties that could not be addressed without careful planning, including a detailed investigation of the structure. The concrete floors include cores and steel prestressing strands, which needed to be located. Some of the installation required drilling holes in the floors, walls, or ceilings, and drilling through prestress strands can compromise an entire building.

Since the new heating system was to be mounted on the roof, this location placement required additional planning to verify that the roof was properly reinforced to manage the weight.

High Profile’s September issue features a Mid-Year Review Spotlight with professionals from numerous industries, including TFMoran’s Chief Operating Officer, Dylan Cruess. Dylan gives his perspective on how the first half of 2021 is going in the engineering field.

Additionally, there is a high demand for new construction of affordable multi-family housing and warehouse distribution facilities, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The engineering and construction industries are as busy as ever.

This has been quite a year so far! Many aspects about the economy seem counterintuitive and unpredictable thus far which historically should cause a reduction in new development projects, but my firm, and the construction industry as a whole, are as busy as ever. Continue Reading →

NHDOT I-93 Widening Project receives ASCE-NH 2021 Outstanding Civil Engineering Award

Congratulations to the New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) for receiving the 2021 ASCE-NH Outstanding Civil Engineering Award for their work on the I-93 Widening Project from Salem to Manchester, completed this spring. The award was presented during the American Society of Civil Engineers NH section (ASCE-NH) Annual Meeting held on July 14th. TFMoran’s Stormwater Monitoring Team is very proud to be a part of this incredible project that entailed widening a 19.8-mile segment of the interstate from Manchester to the Massachusetts state line, as well as upgrades to 5 interchanges and 45 bridges. The goal was to decongest traffic and enhance the safety of motorists.

TFMoran’s responsibility was to provide Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plans (SWPPP), perform stormwater turbidity monitoring and inspection services for the project. Our team of Certified Professionals in Erosion Sediment Control (CPESC), Certified Erosion and Sediment Stormwater Inspectors (CESSWI) and Environmental Scientists worked closely with NHDOT and NHDES project officials. Construction included many drainage and water quality improvements designed to protect NH’s streams, ponds and lakes along this segment; notably, thousands of engineering hours and millions of dollars were spent to minimize impacts to Canobie Lake and Cobbetts Pond from stormwater from the expansion. The project was designed with the intent to collect and treat stormwater runoff using Best Management Practices (BMPs) such as gravel wetlands, extended wet detention, and infiltration basins; safeguards were also implemented to protect said BMPs.

The TFMoran team also worked closely with the highway builders including R.S. Audley, Weaver Brothers Construction, George R. Cairns & Sons, Severino Trucking Co., Alvin J. Coleman & Sons, and E.D. Swett.
