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

Congratulations to Jeremy Belanger (pictured left) named NH’s Young Engineer of the Year!

TFMoran’s Senior Project Engineer Jeremy Belanger, PE has been selected by a jury of his peers from New Hampshire’s Joint Engineering Societies as the 2020 New Hampshire Young Engineer of the Year.  This distinguished award was presented to Jeremy on February 19th at the 69th Annual Engineers’ Week Awards Banquet & Exhibition at the Grappone Conference Center in Concord, NH.  The American Society of Civil Engineers – New Hampshire Section (ASCE-NH) submitted his nomination not only for his involvement in ASCE-NH, but for his outstanding work ethic, his integrity as a young professional, his dedication and enthusiasm for the Civil Engineering profession, and his volunteerism in giving back to the community.

Jeremy started his engineering career with the family business working for his father, Jacques Belanger, LLS as part of a survey field crew before working as a summer intern and part-time employee with Gomez and Sullivan while obtaining his B.S. in Civil Engineering from the University of New Hampshire (UNH).  Upon his graduation in 2010, he obtained his M.S. in Civil Engineering/Water Resources from UNH and continued his career with Gomez and Sullivan as a Water Resources Engineer conducting bathymetric surveys and habitat restorations projects, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Flood Insurance Studies (FIS), Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) re-licensing studies, hydroelectric generation analysis, hydraulic dam break analysis and inundation mapping, and dam removal feasibility and design.

The desire to be closer to his family and familiar surroundings brought Jeremy back to New Hampshire in 2015 when he accepted a position as a civil project engineer with TFMoran, Inc. In his nearly five years with TFMoran Jeremy has made himself indispensable with his tireless work ethic, professionalism and enthusiasm for each assignment. Jeremy’s efforts have not gone unnoticed, as he was recently promoted to Senior Project Engineer, making him the youngest to achieve such a title in TFMoran’s 50+ years of operation. At TFMoran he is responsible for the engineering design and permitting of land development projects and has experience in site planning, drainage design, sewer design, and local and state permitting for residential, commercial, industrial, municipal and energy projects.

Jeremy is an active member of the community and gives back in many ways. After moving back to New Hampshire, he began volunteering for UpReach Therapeutic Equestrian Center. UpReach serves individuals with a wide range of physical, emotional, and psychological disabilities through year-round, equine-assisted activities and therapies.  Jeremy is a regular at the ASCE-NH Younger Member volunteer night at New Horizons Homeless Shelter and Food Pantry, and volunteers at various TFMoran organized activities such as In-Town Manchester’s Adopt-A-Block event.

Jeremy lives with his husband Eric, their dogs Cooper and Callie and cat Meaty in Dunbarton, NH.  Jeremy is an avid outdoorsman and traveler and in his free time can be found snowboarding, hiking or otherwise engulfed in a good book.

TFMoran former Chief Landscape Architect, Anne Cruess, honored at 2019 GSLA Annual Dinner

Congratulations to Anne Cruess, PLA, ASLA, TFMoran’s former Chief Landscape Architect and a principal, who was honored at the Granite State Landscape Architects (GSLA) Annual Dinner on November 7, 2019 at the Concord Country Club. Randy Knowles, president of GSLA, presented Anne with an award recognizing her contribution to the profession of landscape architecture in the State of New Hampshire and her dedicated service to the American Society of Landscape Architects.  In his presentation to the members of the organization, he spoke of Anne as an individual who has spent her career mentoring emerging professionals and advocating for their profession. Her commitment as a Landscape Architect went beyond her role at TFMoran, Anne was instrumental as an active member of GSLA in the 15-year battle of convincing the House and Senate to pass a licensure bill for Professional Landscape Architects in the State of New Hampshire. A huge effort was made by many of the GSLA members, but Anne’s contributions to the cause, the hours spent meeting with allied professionals, her relentless calls to our politicians in Concord were key in the fight for licensure. The years of hard work and dedication finally came to fruition when the licensure bill was passed on July 24, 2006.  Anne was nominated as the chair of the New Hampshire Board of Landscape Architecture and was an active member of the New Hampshire Joint Board of Licensure and Certification, as well as an officer of the Granite State Landscape Architects and a National Trustee representing New Hampshire in Washington, DC.

TFMoran was one of the first engineering firms in the state to have a landscape architecture division. Anne Cruess led that division and has since officially retired from TFMoran in 2018, after an accomplished career as a landscape architect. Her career started in 1982 after earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Environmental Design, at the University of Massachusetts. She was responsible for designing notable projects in New Hampshire including Kalivas Park in Manchester; Bedford Village Common in Bedford; Bass Island Park in Manchester; Exeter Waterfront Park in Exeter; Rails to Trails project in Nashua; a new College Green at Saint Anselm’s College;  French-Atwood Marketplace in Bedford; master planning for the Londonderry Ecological Industrial Park in Londonderry; and Abingdon Square in Goffstown.

Members of TFMoran’s Landscape Architecture department, along with Anne’s family were proud be a part of this special evening in support of her extensive career and accomplishments as one of New Hampshire’s first Professional Landscape Architects.

Congratulations to Anne!
