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.
