Ramtech is a registered American Institute of Architects (AIA) CES provider offering face-to-face HSW Learning Units through our continuing education courses in Modular and Prefabricated Components. Ramtech is continually developing our continuing education program to include seminars and site tours that will assist the Architectural and Design community in understanding the capabilities and potential of using permanent modular construction for small and large scale projects across a number of industries. Our courses are available for architects and designers by scheduling a convenient appointment at our corporate office in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, or by allowing us to come to your location or a venue of your choice.
Ramtech's AIA Continuing Education Courses
Ramtech is pleased to partner with AIA members located in the West South Central Region (Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, and Arkansas) in order to assist you in meeting the 18 continuing education learning units that are required each year for your license renewal. Through our course offerings we’ll share our extensive experience in every facet of design, manufacturing, and construction of commercial modular buildings, allowing you the opportunity to have meaningful exchanges in an interactive environment while also growing your understanding of the vast potential that modular construction can bring to your design offerings.
Modular Design & Construction – A Better Way to Build
DescriptionThis course is designed to educate the Architectural Community to the potential advantages gained through the use of permanent modular construction (PMC) to all project stakeholders. Course includes an overview of Permanent Modular Construction, building manufacturing and structural requirements.
Learning Objective 1: Explain the time, economic, and sustainability benefits for permanent modular construction
Learning Objective 2: Compare the best applications for Permanent Modular Construction (PMC) in Commercial Building Projects specifically focused on design considerations, Code review and construction methods.
Learning Objective 3: Analyze design considerations in commercial building construction using PMC including sustainable materials and methods, safety, off-site building methods and energy efficiency.
Learning Objective 4: Discuss the Architect’s role in the successful implementation of a PMC project. Provide three commercial building case studies in Texas.
Course Format:Instructor-led face-to-face
Modular Design & Construction – Plant Tour
DescriptionThis course is a plant tour and walking class designed to educate the Architectural and Design community about the means and methods of constructing buildings, building components and component assembly. The advantages of Permanent Modular Construction is accented and ties into the Modular Design & Construction course # RBS201805. This tour is through an active modular construction plant which includes material methods and management, sustainable methods of construction that increase recycling, minimize waste and accent material tracking for LEED, methods of centralized construction for ICC Building Code compliance for commercial construction, and building walk-thru of commercial buildings recently completed.
Learning Objective 1: This course is a plant tour and walking class designed to educate the Architectural and Design community about the means and methods of constructing three dimensional commercial modular buildings and structures. Actual steel, wood, and assembly fabrication will be viewed.
Learning Objective 2: The advantages of commercial construction, specifically Permanent Modular Construction, are accented including construction methods, material logistics and distribution and prefabricated floor, roof, and wall jigs.
Learning Objective 3: PMC sustainable methods of construction will be shown in action including material management, tracking, recycling methods and extreme methods of waste reduction. Many options for coordination with USGBC LEED methods and documentation will be discussed.
Learning Objective 4: The tour will accent actual buildings constructed in compliance with the ICC Building Code family of codes for commercial construction. Participants will walk-thru two commercial buildings recently completed and accent methods of transportation for shipping building sections and components. This tour can be offered in conjunction with or without Modular Design & Construction course #RBS201805.
