Ramtech has released a new promotional video that highlights a five-classroom relocatable modular building recently designed, manufactured, and constructed for Annunciation Orthodox School in Houston, TX. The new 6,400 square foot facility allowed Annunciation Orthodox to relocate their existing pre-K program from an older facility to the new modular school building as part of the private school’s long-range master plan. The modular construction project required the demolition of an existing building adjacent to the main campus structure which had been used as a storage facility for several years.
With an efficient use of space utilizing eight modules, the relocatable modular building accommodates five classrooms each with its own private entry into a restroom area with child height toilets, a large common area for recreation and food service, a combination office and employee break room, ample lobby area, and convenient storage and laundry rooms. To blend in with the existing structure’s architecture and color scheme, the building utilizes HardiePanel stucco embossed vertical siding finished with two coats of elastomeric paint. The interior incorporates vinyl covered gypsum on the walls and vinyl composition tile flooring in a random pattern throughout the building. The building also has five zoned Lennox split systems designed for energy efficient heating and cooling of the facility. Annunciation Orthodox was responsible for bringing the utilities to the building while Ramtech provided the rough ins for all of the data wiring. The 90 day project required careful coordination of the logistics in moving the pre-manufactured building sections through the narrow tree-lined streets of Houston’s historic Museum District. Once installed, the modular school building was finished out and ready for occupancy prior to the start of school in August.
