Dylan Cruess’ Mid-Year Engineering Review published in High Profile

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. The good news is “So far in 2021 the positive factors outweigh the economic uncertainties.”  Dylan writes about the challenges of the rising costs of construction materials and supply delays that our clients are facing in their development projects, along with more strict environmental regulations, plus approval and permitting delays. 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. Overall, the first half of 2021 has been strong despite these uncertainties and many of TFMoran’s clients are optimistic about the future. The engineering and construction industries are as busy as ever.

So far in 2021 the positive factors outweigh the economic uncertainties.

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 →

TFMoran’s Quincy, MA Structural Project Featured in High-Profile’s April Issue

The April issue of High-Profile has a Multi-Residential focus section which features one of TFMoran’s structural projects in Quincy, MA. We invite you to read all about it below, or you can view the story as it appears in HP by clicking on this pdf link TFMoran Structural One Newport Ave., Quincy, MA

TFMoran on Design Team for One Newport Ave.

Quincy, MA – KFP Architects of Hingham, Mass., and TFMoran of Bedford, N.H., provided architectural and structural engineering services for the new construction of a six-story, multifamily residential building. The project is located on Newport Avenue, between West Squantum and Arlington streets in Quincy, Mass.

Demolition of the existing industrial building is expected to occur early spring 2018, with foundation work slated for mid-to-late spring 2018. The general contractor, RESKON Group, expects an overall completion of this new apartment building for fall 2019.

Developed by Arista Development, the new apartment building will include four stories, approximately 80,000sf of 80 residential units over two stories and approximately 50,000sf of above-grade, open parking space.

Located within the footprint of an existing industrial building that is to be demolished, soil conditions were determined to consist of granular urban fill over a former marsh deposit of organic silt. Traditionally, these conditions would not be suitable for shallow spread footing foundations. Instead, in conjunction with Terracon Consultants, soil improvement techniques such as aggregate piers and stone columns were considered to help provide a suitable bearing surface for shallow foundations while keeping foundation costs to a minimum.

The superstructure itself is considered “podium” style, consisting of woodframed residential levels over concrete slabs on steel framing at the parking levels. A mix of one- and two-story units will be provided with ample parking, elevated patio spaces, spacious exercise and meeting rooms, and a roof deck overlooking the Quincy Bay.
