Sustainable Construction

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.

 

Ramtech's Accelerated Building System for Education

Video presentation explaining Ramtech's Accelerated Building System prefabricated construction process. The ABS method combines the best of off-site prefabrication and on-site construction techniques in order to produce a building faster and with less costs, but identical in the look, functionality and life expectancy of a completely site-built structure. Ramtech accomplishes this by setting factory assembled modular sections complete with attached ceilings and walls - but no floors - directly onto a conventional concrete slab foundation. This allows the concrete slab to become the floor of the structure just like a site-built building. We then site-apply all of the exterior and interior finishes, enabling us to provide facilities faster and with less design and construction costs than site-built construction methods.
