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 Penny Gray, Administrator of Limestone Medical Center in Groesbeck, Texas. The video was shot in the lobby area of this 12,000 square foot family medical clinic built using our Accelerated Building System prefabricated construction method. Ramtech provided full construction services including the development of the site. The new clinic was part of a complete redevelopment with an exterior to match the new hospital facility constructed on the same site. The $2.1 million dollar rural health clinic is home to seven physicians and an optometrist and includes a total of 20 exam rooms, 4 procedure rooms, medical records and billing offices, and retail space for an optometrist.
