Ramtech Completes Work on Lifestyle Management’s Residential Reintegration Facility

Posted on: June 6th, 2016 by (No Comments)

Ramtech has completed the construction on the Dallas Transitional Center residential reintegration facility that we built for Lifestyle Management Inc. of Edmond, Oklahoma. Located 12 miles south of downtown Dallas, the 31,752 square foot 296 bed facility was designed, manufactured, and constructed using our Accelerated Building System permanent modular construction method.  Located on ten acres of unincorporated land owned by Dallas County, the new facility replaced Lifestyle’s previous 225-bed halfway house in Dallas. The building layout provides for four 50-man dorms, three 24-man dorms, one 24-woman dorm, two activity rooms, a full commercial kitchen, and administrative office space in both wings.  Ramtech was responsible for the full site development of the four acres required to accommodate the building, 40 parking spaces, basketball courts, and two covered pavilions. The Dallas Transitional Center contracts with the Texas Department of Criminal Justice to provide halfway house residents with case management, employment placement and reintegration services.  The program also provides meals and transportation to treatment programs, jobs, and medical appointments.

Ramtech Moves Toward Completion of Two-Story Prefabricated High School Building for Randolph Field (TX) ISD

Posted on: June 6th, 2016 by (No Comments)

Randolph Field ISD Prefabricated High SchoolRamtech is moving into the final phase of construction on the new high school facility we are building for the Randolph Field (TX) Independent School District. The design-build contract called for Ramtech to provide complete turnkey services to the district using our Accelerated Building System (ABS) prefabricated construction method for a 47,448 square foot two-story facility.  The metal portion of the exterior finish application is now 75% complete and the masonry portion will begin next week. The interior finishes have been applied and the floor coverings are also slated to be installed beginning next week. To make way for the new $7.3 million school building, the school district demolished two existing structures which were removed during the spring of last year. The design of the new structure provides space for 23 classrooms, an eighth grade science center, two computer labs, two student commons, and an administrative area with offices, counseling suite, and a nurse station.  The facility will also include four high school level labs for physics, biology, chemistry, and environmental science all situated around a common central preparation area with chemical storage capability. In addition to the brick and split-faced block masonry on the first floor, the building’s exterior design includes a high profile custom-colored architectural metal siding in horizontal and vertical orientations designed to highlight the building entrances and complement the finishes of the existing campus structures.  High-efficiency gas-fired rooftop HVAC units will provide the heating and cooling on the second floor of the building, with zoned electrical HVAC units for the first floor. Ramtech expects to complete the project by July 1.
