This project began at ground level with the preparation of a civil/site design package and associated earthwork permit applications. This effort was led by GZA GeoEnvironmental as the overall Project Manager for GE Aviation, who retained TFMoran to prepare the civil/site plan and permit package. As to be expected with the expansion of any existing structure, numerous design challenges faced the design team, but working diligently with Hooksett officials, State officials and local utility providers, the pertinent design issues were identified in advance and a unified approach was employed to solve each critical component. TFMoran also provided structural engineering, survey and landscape architectural services for a 55,000 sf plant expansion on Industrial Park Drive in Hooksett, NH. The building expansion was sited over a portion of a town-owned road, which was discontinued and re-aligned for local traffic. The $50 million expansion represents a state-of-the-art facility using the latest technology to manufacture components for the new generation of military and commercial aircraft engines. The design-build team of Pure Development, consisted of Brasfield & Gorrie of Birmingham, Alabama as General Contractor with CSO Architects, who assembled their team for the building design and construction oversight.
