Bowman Place at Olde Bedford Featured in the Union Leader

Bowman Place at Olde Bedford is officially open, and was recently featured in the Monday Business section of the Union Leader. The facility located on Olde Bedford Road has 105 apartments providing independent living options and amenities for residents to enjoy. Built with a new generation of assisted living residents in mind, the facility offers a less restrictive environment by focusing on independence with assistance as needed.

Since enduring the pandemic, new safety measurements have also been implemented including a state-of-the-art filtration system and a screening system for all staff and visitors upon entry.

TFMoran worked alongside Development Manager Munson & Associates, EGA Architects and Eckman Construction Company and provided civil/site engineering, permitting, traffic engineering and landscape architecture services for the project.

TFMoran Attends Union Leader Symposium Series: Women in Engineering

On March 24, the Union Leader hosted a virtual Women in Engineering Symposium. During this event, panelists discussed their own experiences and provided tips for other women to succeed in 2021. This is the second year TFM was a corporate sponsor for this event.

Panelists included Kristin Smith, Ph. D., MPH Research Associate Professor of Sociology at Dartmouth College; Nikki Delude Roy, PG Vice President of GeoInsight, Inc.; Laurie Perkins, PE Associate Vice President, of Wright-Pierce; and Heidi L. Caprood, PE Project Manager, of Sanborn Head & Associates, Inc..

65 participants joined the discussion by answering poll questions regarding their own work / life balance.

A conclusion that all agreed upon was that the expectations of workers in 2021 will be directly effected by the Covid-19 Pandemic. A common theme among the panelists was flexibility. Especially as working mothers, the women panelists felt that the outcome of all this is that people will continue to work schedules that work for them without the stigma previously attached to it. In the midst of the pandemic, companies have found that flexible hours and schedules can work, especially when balancing work and life. In a poll, participants were asked whether they feel they have a good work/life balance in 2021. 65% of participants said they feel so-so, while 19% said they don’t and 16% said they do.

It was a very interesting discussion to attend! Thank you to the Union Leader for putting this together!

The Symposium is now available on-line.

The NH SportsDome hosts gave tours of the facility, which boasts 2 ½ miles of artificial turf across a collegiate-sized field. The dome structure rises 72 feet high, and was manufactured by The Farley Group. The first-of-its-kind structure for New Hampshire, located on Benton Road in Hooksett, opened on February 18th.  A “Dirt to Dome” video presentation was on display for those who wanted to follow the construction progress. TFMoran provided services for survey, site/civil design, structural design, local, state and federal permitting, landscape architecture, traffic engineering, and construction phase. The project team included Capital Construction, LLC, as General Contractor and Severino Trucking Co., Inc., as Site Contractor.

TFMoran featured in Union Leader Special ‘STEM’ Section

Engineers Week is here! The New Hampshire Union Leader has presented a special edition this week to promote ‘STEM’ professions and to celebrate Engineers for all that they do. This special section includes a recent TFMoran project, the NH SportsDome on the front page! TFMoran Principal, Nick Golon spoke of the trials and tribulations that came with this first-of-its-kind structure in New Hampshire:

“Given its magnitude, siting the structure to minimize sightlines from adjacent properties, while maintaining required setbacks, and providing the necessary utility infrastructure were challenging issues. Another significant element was snow removal, to make sure that snowfall would not pose any risk of damage to the structure. Site grading and drainage were carefully designed so that snow and snowmelt could be conveyed safely and efficiently away from the structure and surrounding parking through an open drainage system of swales and infiltration basins.”

In other exciting TFMoran news, the announcement of our new Principals was also featured!
