Ramtech’s New Four-Classroom Modular Building Now On Display

Posted on: March 18th, 2015 by (No Comments)

To provide our customers with an up close and personal look at the features and benefits built into every Ramtech multiple classroom building, we recently installed a new four classroom facility adjacent to our corporate headquarters and manufacturing plant located in Mansfield, Texas.  The modular school building contains finished and unfinished rooms to provide a complete view into how Ramtech designs, manufactures, and installs each of our facilities.  Ranging in size from 4 to 16 classrooms, schools have a choice in how they can meet their facility requirements by using one of our standard floor plan designs or a customized version.  As a full-service design-build construction company, this model building will help provide potential clients with a first-hand look at what can be done when using our approach to relocatable buildings and permanent modular construction.


Relocatability – It’s Where Modular Buildings Shine

Posted on: May 6th, 2014 by (No Comments)

Aldine Cafeteria RegistersOne of the primary advantages of modular construction is the ability to relocate the modular buildings to another location for the same purpose or for some other secondary utilization. This flexibility is now on full display at the Houston-area Aldine Independent School District’s Eisenhower High School, where Ramtech is relocating two cafeteria buildings which were originally installed in June 2013 at the District’s Nimitz High School campus. This was part of the 41,216 square foot project which included four buildings including two at the district’s MacArthur High School. All of the modular cafeteria buildings are being used as interim facilities for six months to a year while the District renovates each of the school’s existing permanent cafeterias. (more…)

Modular Schools for Growing School Districts

For over 30 years Ramtech has provided schools throughout the southwest with portable classroom buildings. Typically Ramtech keeps over 50 two-classroom buildings (often referred to as double classrooms or portables) both with and without restrooms in inventory for immediate delivery to public, private, and charter schools.  As the largest supplier of portable classrooms in the Southwest, what many schools don’t realize is that Ramtech is also a major supplier of both standard and custom multiple classroom buildings, facilities that include up to 4 to 16 classrooms per building.

Modular Construction Support for Private and Faith-Based Schools

Posted on: September 29th, 2012 by (No Comments)

With most public schools currently challenged by a lack of funding and inflexible regulations, private and faith-based schools are growing rapidly.  The biggest challenge these educators have is the cost of design and construction for new schools or the expansion of their existing campuses.  The answer for many is modular construction. Using Ramtech’s approach, a faith-based school can receive a high quality educational facility faster, and much less expensive than with site construction.  Ramtech can also provide full design, manufacturing, and site construction, or we can work with the a designated design and construction team.  Modular buildings can be either permanent or temporary, using a raised pier and beam foundation or an engineered slab-on-grade concrete foundation.
