Ramtech's permanent modular construction (PMC) approach can incorporate a number of sustainable features into a commercial modular building's design, manufacturing, installation, site development and finish-out. Our PMC construction method is recognized for substantially reducing materials waste and improving air quality by utilizing a factory controlled manufacturing environment that segregates the building materials from any exposure to inclement weather. The use of a simultaneous offsite and on-site construction process also minimizes disturbances to the environment by reducing the amount of vehicles and equipment that are required at the construction site. Other sustainable features that are typically incorporated into a permanent modular building's design include white reflective TPO roofs to reduce the heat island effect, water use reduction strategies for restrooms, and optimized energy performance that stems from the 2009 International Energy Conservation Code. Ramtech has constructed numerous LEED Silver Certified single and multistory permanent modular buildings ranging in size from 14,000 to over 120,000 square feet.
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.
