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 John Mixon, lead architect from Stuck Associates Architects on the modular elementary and middle school campus built for KIPP Delta Public Schools in Blytheville, Arkansas. This video was shot in one of the classrooms that make up the School's five-unit modular building complex, designed and constructed using traditional modular construction by Ramtech. The project includes an elementary and middle school consisting of three 8,100 square foot eight-classroom buildings, a 3,600 square foot food preparation and cafeteria facility, and a 3,600 square foot administrative office complex.
