Portsmouth, NH – At TFMoran, both the Bedford and Portsmouth offices proudly employ a number of women in construction.

One of these women is Brenda Kolbow, the survey project manager at the Portsmouth office, where she oversees a wide range of survey projects.

These projects include construction layout, local and state permitting, existing conditions plans for engineering design, and attaining municipal approvals for residential and commercial projects.

Kolbow has over 13 years of experience and is a licensed land surveyor in New Hampshire, Maine, and North Carolina. She earned an associate’s degree in surveying technology from Western Piedmont Community College in Morganton, N.C., while working in that area at a small surveying company.

“That was a huge benefit to me because it allowed me to be a part of projects from beginning to end, from the field to the office,” said Kolbow.

After getting her education and starting her career in North Carolina, she made the move north six years ago and says she is not looking back. “This area has provided great opportunities for me and my family, and I am very happy to be here.”

Working in the construction industry is very technical with little room for error, which can be stressful at times, but she says she enjoys the challenge and seeing all the components come together, “From a small residential project of putting up a fence, to a commercial retail building, it is really satisfying to see the results of your hard work.”

TFMoran is honored to have her, along with other women professionals on its team.
