Ramtech has made a public unveiling of our recently relaunched RamtechModular.com website which showcases our extensive facility solutions available to the education, healthcare, commercial, and government markets. The website was redesigned using the WordPress content management system platform which will allow for an improved visual emphasis with a superior structure for providing and updating information on facilities which are available through our three versatile building systems including relocatable modular buildings and pier and beam or slab-on-grade permanent modular construction. A streamlined menu system was used which allows for faster navigation through each section and provides for specific pages that include informative details on how Ramtech constructs the three distinct building types, the specific kinds of facilities that are available using each type of building system, and the myriad number benefits gained by using modular construction through the design-build project delivery system. The website also contains an updatable photo gallery with downloadable profiles of previous projects, informational videos with testimonials, and improved navigation to the wide range of standard and custom floor plan designs that Ramtech has available using each of the three types of construction.
The Mansfield Chamber Of Commerce’s recently added a 30-second corporate video produced for Ramtech to their corporate website. Developed in association with Rochester, New York-based CGI Communications, the video highlights Ramtech’s design-build capabilities and our three types of construction for relocatable modular buildings, and pier and beam and slab on grade permanent modular construction. Ramtech was fortunate to have had the Denver International Airport all-steel construction project online during the time the video was shot. Additionally, Ramtech employees and several finished photos of our more prominent projects were also used in the CGI narrated video. CGI Communications has an extensive track record of developing corporate videos as part of their Community Video Project, a program designed to streamline communication and strengthen communities through local economic development corporations and chambers of commerce throughout the country. The program provides, at no cost to the municipality, complete production services including script writing, filming, editing, music and voiceovers, as well as hosting and streaming of all the video content.
