TFMoran is a proud sponsor of the McKelvie Intermediate School Move-A-Thon, an event to raise funds to provide students and teachers with useful resources in and out of the classroom. In years past, some of these resources included updated technology and Chromebooks for student use, updates to the McKelvie courtyard and playground, and teacher “wish list” items that enhance classroom instruction and lessons. This years funds will go towards updating student spaces within the library, additions to the playground and providing teachers with “wish list” items for their instructional use.
TFMoran is deeply involved in our local community and we support many youth organizations. Recently, TFMoran made a donation to support NH Envirothon, an educational program for students to gain hands-on experience in the field of environmental sciences and natural resources.
More about NH Envirothon:
Live Free and Conserve!
Since 1992, NH Envirothon has inspired teens to make responsible environmental and natural resource decisions through real-world, hands-on educational experiences. Many students step away from the Envirothon experience excited about learning and motivated to pursue careers in environmental studies, environmental law, natural sciences, and natural resource management.
Each year, volunteer advisers coach teams with assistance from local conservation districts, forestry associations and participating natural resource agencies and organizations. Students are tested on their knowledge in five topic areas: aquatics, forestry, soils, wildlife and current environmental issues. Through the program, students develop an understanding of effective teamwork, resource management and ecology. At the same time, they gain valuable exposure to a range of disciplines while exploring possible career paths. Winning teams from each participating state and province advance to the National Conservation Foundation Envirothon (NCFE) to compete for national recognition, scholarships and prizes.
The Envirothon Competition is an amazing cross-curriculum adventure, impacting not only the sciences but history and cultural studies as well. Teachers, home-school parents, scout and group leaders can build a team. Some educators involve a whole class, others advise teams of five members as a club or after school activity. Open to all high school students, a team may be sponsored by a school, home-school group, agricultural association, scout, or community service group.To learn more about Envirothon nhenvirothon.org
The NH Envirothon program is administered by the NH Association of Conservation Districts (NHACD). Other supporters include the NH Department of Environmental Services (NHDES), Society of American Foresters | Granite State Division, NH Association of Conservation Districts, Society of Soil Scientists | Northern New England, the Fox Research and Demonstration Forest, and NHTI.

A recent project of TFMoran, the NH Sportsdome, was featured on the front page of the Union Leader on January 11, 2021.

The facility is meant to be close in quality to a professional field, giving local sports teams, college students, children and young adults the experience of a high quality field. The facility is set to open in February. Check out the full article here.

A celebration was held on Saturday, July 13th for the completion of the newly renovated historic Concord Theatre- now the Bank of New Hampshire Stage. TFMoran’s Sr. Project Manager, Nick Golon, PE and his family attended the picnic dinner, and 90’s theme dance party courtesy of Duprey Hospitality, to celebrate the stage’s completion. The Bank of New Hampshire Stage is located on South Main Street in Concord, and is now owned by The Capitol Center for the Arts, located just down the road.
TFMoran structural and civil engineers worked closely with Dennis Mires P.A. The Architects and Milestone Engineering and Construction to provide civil and structural engineering services for the project.
Originally a bakery started in the mid-1800’s, The Concord Theatre building was converted to a movie theatre which ran from the 1930s to the mid 1990’s. The property also housed various small businesses more recently. However, the main movie theatre has been vacant for many years. The renovation project will create a flexible event venue for the Capitol Center for the Arts and a box office.
The existing building was in need of repair and rehabilitation. Consequently, the project includes significant structural upgrades and repairs to the building framing. Outdated floor, roof and wall framing will be reinforced or replaced. Additionally, an interior balcony and new cantilevered marquee will be added.
A small addition was added on the building’s south side for a new stair and elevator. The attractive addition was built in conjunction with functional and aesthetic improvements to the building’s site. New pavement, plantings, seating and a loading area were part of the project.
