Ramtech's green building approach for relocatable commercial modular buildings incorporates a number of manufacturing and construction techniques to build in sustainable features that make our facilities more beneficial in a number of areas. By using a factory-built process where up to 80% of the building is completed in the manufacturing plant, less material waste occurs given that construction materials are purchased in bulk quantities and stored in a protected environment that reduces theft and environmental exposure at the jobsite. The manufacturing of the buildings in a factory controlled environment also results in less material exposure to inclement weather, especially with the framing materials, and results in less site disturbance by reducing the amount of time and impact that vehicles and other equipment have on the jobsite itself. Our modular buildings can also be repurposed for secondary utilization either through reconfiguration for a new a purpose or by relocation to a new site.
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.
