Ramtech Launches Redesigned Website for Relocatable and Permanent Modular School Buildings

Posted on: May 11th, 2015 by (No Comments)

RamtechEducation.comAs part of Ramtech’s effort to educate the public on our modular school building product offerings while also providing an enhanced user experience, our flagship education website RamtechEducation.com was recently relaunched after a complete redesign. The new site showcases our wide range of modular building options for facility additions and expansions available for public and private schools throughout the Southwest. The redesign incorporates separate sections which highlight Ramtech’s three distinct building systems for relocatable modular buildings, permanent modular construction, and prefabricated construction featuring our Accelerated Building System slab-on-grade method.  Each section details how we construct the three building types, the specific benefits (including sustainability) they provide, and the facility types available with each building system. We have also provided an updated photo gallery of past projects, and provided easier navigation to the wide range of standard and custom floor plans we have available using each construction method. The new website also includes additional project videos, and better integration with our social media sites. Ramtech will take this same approach to our other sites which we plan to have redesigned and updated prior to the end of summer.

To provide our customers with an up close and personal look at the features and benefits built into every Ramtech multiple classroom building, we recently installed a new four classroom facility adjacent to our corporate headquarters and manufacturing plant located in Mansfield, Texas.  The modular school building contains finished and unfinished rooms to provide a complete view into how Ramtech designs, manufactures, and installs each of our facilities.  Ranging in size from 4 to 16 classrooms, schools have a choice in how they can meet their facility requirements by using one of our standard floor plan designs or a customized version.  As a full-service design-build construction company, this model building will help provide potential clients with a first-hand look at what can be done when using our approach to relocatable buildings and permanent modular construction.

Blue Ridge Methodist Selects Ramtech For New Modular Church Project

Posted on: August 26th, 2014 by (No Comments)

First United Methodist Church of Blue Ridge, Texas has approved the design portion of Ramtech’s design-build proposal for the construction of a new 10,250 square foot modular church building that will be placed on the Church’s new 18 acre site.  The estimated $1.2 million project will be configured as an L-shaped structure in order to maximize the available space for a worship center, three offices, eight adult and children’s’ classrooms, and a daycare center. This will allow First United to replace their existing facility with a new modular building that can meet their current needs for the next three to five years. The Church ultimately plans to construct a permanent building complex which will then allow the modular building to be used exclusively by the youth ministry. Once the manufacturing of the modular sections begins, Ramtech expects to have the project completed in less than 120 days. (more…)

Setting the Record Straight on Design-Build Modular Construction for Texas Schools

Posted on: March 27th, 2014 by (No Comments)

Why do school districts in Texas as well as many architectural firms believe that design-build is not a superior method of contracting for public school construction?  The arguments often center on the schools not knowing the final cost of the project until it is completed; that many school projects come in over budget; and that the design-build team will lower the quality of the construction in order to meet the district’s budget. While this could be an issue with some common applications of design-build that other companies take, Ramtech has developed a vertically integrated permanent modular construction approach to design-build that eliminates these concerns while providing a less expensive school facility which can be completed faster than using the design-bid-build or construction manager delivery methods.
