Ramtech's Accelerated Building System (ABS) is our premier construction method for designing and constructing mid to large-sized permanent facilities. Developed as a comprehensive turnkey project delivery method, the construction part of the ABS process utilizes prefabricated sections which are manufactured with the ceiling and walls attached, but without a floor, then transported to the project site and crane set directly onto a conventional concrete slab foundation. This allows the concrete slab to become the floor of the structure just like a building that was completely done on site. After all of the prefabricated sections are set into place and welded to the foundation, the building is weathered in and the exterior and interior finish-out process can begin. The entire ABS construction process provides for:
Project video narrated by Jon Hartgraves, Superintendent of Hico ISD in Hico, Texas. This video highlights the design, manufacture, and construction of an eight-classroom relocatable modular building installed to match the existing structures on the district's main campus. The 8,064 square foot facility was part of a modular construction project that included the purchase of the modular school building as well as the lease of two of Ramtech's industry-leading portable classrooms. Part of a district wide facility consolidation program, the multiple classroom building was installed on an adjacent parking lot at the current junior high school location in order to accommodate pre-kindergarten and elementary school students.
