TFMoran Honors Our First Class Survey Team during National Surveyors Week 2021

This week (March 21-27) TFMoran is celebrating National Land Surveyors Week!

All engineering work is ultimately based on accurate survey. Whether it takes place outdoors or indoors; it all begins with survey – a solid understanding of existing conditions – and ends with survey – making sure the work is put in the right place. That is why we at TFMoran are proud to recognize National Surveyors Week. Our history of combining the best in survey with the best in engineering stretches back over 50 years. Join us this week as we honor our first class survey team:

Licensed Land Surveyors: Corey Colwell, LLS – Michael Hammer, LLS, PLS – Brenda Kolbow, LLS, PLS – Hans Mertsch, LLS, PLS – Tom Berube, LLS, PLS – Stephen Bibeau, LLS – Philip Trombley, PLS – Mo Vander Pol, III, SIT

Field Technicians & Crew:  Mike Burt; Tom Wood; Rich Ward; Aaron Lamond; Todd Emerson; Marty Gavin; Giuseppe Granara; and Jonathan Devine, EIT

We appreciate all that they do!

Our surveyors are a crucial part of the TFMoran Team, providing clients and engineers with the precise measurements they need for a successful project. We recognize the dedication and outstanding work of our Survey Department Managers:  Mike Hammer, LLS, PLS  and  Brenda Kolbow, LLS, PLS.   Mike manages TFMoran’s Bedford Survey Department. He brings over 30 years of survey experience to the team and is licensed in the states of New Hampshire and Massachusetts. Brenda manages TFMoran’s Seacoast Division Survey Department. She has nearly 20 years of survey experience and is licensed in the states of New Hampshire, Maine, and North Carolina.

Many of our surveyors are members of the New Hampshire Land Surveying Association and we are grateful to the association for their support.

The New Hampshire Union Leader is also recognizing Surveyors this week with a special edition! Check it out and keep an eye out for TFMoran!
