Ramtech's Accelerated Building System prefabricated construction approach can incorporate a number of sustainable features into a commercial building's design and construction. Our ABS process is recognized for substantially reducing materials waste and improving air quality by utilizing a factory-controlled manufacturing environment that segregates the building materials from the exposure to inclement weather. The use of a simultaneous offsite and on-site construction process also minimizes the disturbances to the environment by reducing the number of vehicles and equipment that are required at the building site. Other sustainable features that can be incorporated into a prefabricated building's design include white reflective TPO roofs that reduce the heat island effect, water use reduction strategies for lavatories, and an optimized energy performance that builds on the 2009 International Energy Conservation Code. Ramtech has constructed several LEED Silver Certified single and multistory prefabricated buildings ranging in size from 14,000 to 120,000 square feet.
Project video narrated by Rev John Wilke, Senior Pastor at Immanuel Lutheran Church and School in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. The video was shot in the Church's preschool building, designed and constructed by Ramtech using traditional permanent modular construction. The 13,440 square foot 14 classroom facility provides additional space for a full-day preschool program which moved from the main church building. The building includes individual classrooms, office space, break room, and a common play area and worship room. The exterior incorporates a NICHIHA fiber-cement brick panel wainscot together with an elastomeric paint finish applied over HardiePanel.
