On Thursday, May 16, 2024, Structural Engineers of New Hampshire held their annual Excellence in Structural Engineering Awards event at the Puritan Conference Center in Manchester.  Entries were judged on creativity, complexity, innovation, ingenuity, and suitability of the structural design for each of three categories: Buildings, Bridge and Transportation Structures, and Special Structures.
TFMoran was honored to receive the award in the “Buildings” category for renovations to a circa 1900 industrial building for a new 19,700sf worship and community center for Highrock Church in Arlington, Massachusetts.  Thomas Lamb, PE, Senior Structural Engineer and Principal of TFMoran, accepted the award from SENH President, Sean Brown.
Mr. Lamb’s structural design allowed Highrock Church to occupy the former industrial building, originally built for manufacturing at the turn of the 20th century.  In more recent years, the building has been used for a variety of purposes, including auto repair and parts warehousing. The structural design included replacing the roof structure, repairing damaged concrete framing, and retrofitting foundations to allow creation of a functional, open worship space. A new lobby addition in the front provides accessibility and connection to adjacent church property, while elsewhere preserving significant portions of the building’s original, historic facades.
