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 Marty Crawford, Superintendent at West ISD in West, Texas. This video was shot in the district's middle school science lab, one of 17 relocatable modular buildings that were designed, manufactured, and installed by Ramtech in the wake of the massive fertilizer plant explosion that destroyed the districtís middle and high schools. The 69,776 square foot modular construction project includes three 10-classroom buildings, four computer and science labs, two locker room buildings, administrative office the cafeteria, band hall, and a content mastery building.
