I asked this question to Reb Dovid Feinstein and he responded 'What? Who's skipping tachnun? Oh you mean by the chasidim'lach. (chuckle) Yes you can say tachnun in the shul'.

Tachanun According to Halacha Berurah 131:2, a Sepharadi davening with Ashkenazim needs to say vidui, and the 13 midot. Apparently, he should say the 13 midot with ta'amim (as he would if he were davening alone - 131:9). If it's a Monday or Thursday, he should just say the first instance of the 13 midot. In the other times it appears in the extended ...

I don't think that either side is "right", here. Your statement "perhaps we can be happy about not saying it if we aren't supposed to be saying it?" is not entirely correct. Tachanun is ommitted on sad occasions as well as happy ones. For example, Tachanun is ommitted on Tish'a B'av as well as in the house of mourners. Neither occasion is one to rejoice. ...

Jewish Prayers: Tahanun states The reason that extra sections are added on Mondays and Thursdays is because, according to tradition, these days are favorable times for God to respond to our pleas.

My rav explained that Tachanun (which, is part of your question, per se, not necessarily the direct reason why Avinu Malkeinu) is omitted on occasions of either "extreme" - extreme joy or extreme sadness. Yom Tov is "extreme joy" so Tachanun is omitted. In a house of mourning during the week of shiva, Tachanun is also omitted. This is a location & time ...

Mishna B'rura (131:24, Shaar Hatziyun :21) says those who pray in the synagogue's lobby without an aron (cabinet for the Torah scrolls) and teva (lectern) are thereby "drawn after" the synagogue and so skip tachanun if the b'ris will be in the main synagogue (and even if the participants in the b'ris are absent for the service). It seems from his wording ...

The Ramma in siman 131 siff 2 brings from the Beis Yosef who quotes a Rokeach -- The Rokeach also writes in siman 324 not to 'fall' unless in front of a seffer torah. And a siman for this is found in the war against Ay (Yehoshua 7, 6) 'and he fel lon his face in front of the aron'." The Beis Yosef concludes by saying if it's accepted (kabbala), ...

See Mishna B'rura (108:11), who indicates that the repetition of the amida does not create a problematic interruption since the person is still involved in the first prayer. Thus, it appears that the person should wait and say tachanun and ashrei with the congregation.
