Ramtech Set To Begin Installation of Temporary Elementary Campus at Deweyville ISD

Posted on: July 26th, 2016 by (No Comments)

This week Ramtech is set to begin installing the buildings for the temporary elementary school campus we have constructed for Deweyville ISD.  This project was the result of the district’s needing to meet the challenge of relocating all of their elementary school students to their high school campus as a result of the Sabine River flooding that occurred in March of this year. The relocatable modular education project is a 36 month lease for 11 buildings. Ramtech finished the manufacturing of the final building at the end of last week. The first building to be installed is an 8,064 square foot eight classroom building.  This will be followed by a 6,272 square foot multipurpose facility which will include an administrative section for the elementary school staff and the District’s superintendent. The building will have nine offices and a reception area, four bathrooms, a large conference room, computer lab, and a library. The other buildings include a 5,120 square foot cafeteria with a full-service kitchen capable of accommodating 150 students, and eight portable classroom buildings. Ramtech is also working on developing an 11,410 square foot pre-engineered steel building which will provide gymnasium space and a maintenance garage. Ramtech will be responsible for all of the site preparation including the soil remediation and the installation of a lift station. Ramtech is scheduled to complete the modular portion of the project prior to the start of school at the end of August.

Ramtech Nears Completion on Modular Building Project for Humble (TX) ISD

Posted on: June 21st, 2016 by (No Comments)

Ramtech is nearing completion on a large modular building project that we began last year for Humble ISD.  The $1.47 million project included 13 custom portable double-classroom buildings and a 8,820 square foot instructional life skills facility. To meet the aesthetic requirements of the local neighborhoods of the seven sites where the portable classroom buildings were installed, each were built with 20-year composition roofs that were installed at Ramtech’s outside corral. All of the buildings also have upgraded interiors which include birch wood grain paneling and special low VOC carpet. The life skills facility includes eight classrooms and to fully simulated apartments with kitchens and showers. There is also a conference room, three offices, and a teachers work room. All of the facilities were built to meet a 110 mile hour wind load specification and were procured through the Texas Buyboard network purchasing cooperative. Ramtech will finish installing the last portable classroom building for the project prior to the end of July and we plan to photograph the life skills facility for inclusion in our project portfolio prior to the start of the 2016-2017 school year.

Ramtech has completed the construction on the Dallas Transitional Center residential reintegration facility that we built for Lifestyle Management Inc. of Edmond, Oklahoma.

The building layout provides for four 50-man dorms, three 24-man dorms, one 24-woman dorm, two activity rooms, a full commercial kitchen, and administrative office space in both wings.  Ramtech was responsible for the full site development of the four acres required to accommodate the building, 40 parking spaces, basketball courts, and two covered pavilions. The Dallas Transitional Center contracts with the Texas Department of Criminal Justice to provide halfway house residents with case management, employment placement and reintegration services.  The program also provides meals and transportation to treatment programs, jobs, and medical appointments.

Ramtech Moves Toward Completion of Two-Story Prefabricated High School Building for Randolph Field (TX) ISD

Posted on: June 6th, 2016 by (No Comments)

Randolph Field ISD Prefabricated High SchoolRamtech is moving into the final phase of construction on the new high school facility we are building for the Randolph Field (TX) Independent School District. The design-build contract called for Ramtech to provide complete turnkey services to the district using our Accelerated Building System (ABS) prefabricated construction method for a 47,448 square foot two-story facility.  The metal portion of the exterior finish application is now 75% complete and the masonry portion will begin next week. The interior finishes have been applied and the floor coverings are also slated to be installed beginning next week. To make way for the new $7.3 million school building, the school district demolished two existing structures which were removed during the spring of last year. The design of the new structure provides space for 23 classrooms, an eighth grade science center, two computer labs, two student commons, and an administrative area with offices, counseling suite, and a nurse station.  The facility will also include four high school level labs for physics, biology, chemistry, and environmental science all situated around a common central preparation area with chemical storage capability. In addition to the brick and split-faced block masonry on the first floor, the building’s exterior design includes a high profile custom-colored architectural metal siding in horizontal and vertical orientations designed to highlight the building entrances and complement the finishes of the existing campus structures.  High-efficiency gas-fired rooftop HVAC units will provide the heating and cooling on the second floor of the building, with zoned electrical HVAC units for the first floor. Ramtech expects to complete the project by July 1.
