Ramtech Building is now in full production for the manufacturing phase of the 26 non-combustible steel framed modular sections that will make up a 22,680 square foot permanent modular building for Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) in Los Alamos, NM. The two-story facility will be built using our Slab-on-Grade Permanent Modular Construction process and will include an atrium, elevator, and two stairwells. The floor plan calls for 67 personal business offices in three sizes along with an open office plan on both floors that can accommodate 12 freestanding office spaces using custom furniture cubicles. Designated as a Multi-Use Office Building (MUOB) project, the new facility will be installed adjacent to LANL’s main headquarters located in Technical Area 3. We will complete the manufacturing part of the facility by the middle of November, and will begin the installation of the modular sections during the first quarter of 2020. (more…)

Ramtech Completes Modular Building for Temporary Flying Squadron Facility at Vance Air Force Base in Enid, OK
Ramtech recently completed a 17,284 square foot Temporary Flying Squadron Facility for the 33d Flying Training Squadron at Vance Air Force Base in Enid, Oklahoma. Procured using a five-year operating lease, the single-story modular building complex will be used for pilot training as part of a program aimed at increasing the graduation rate to address the shortage of pilots that currently exists within the U.S. Air Force. Ramtech worked with the 71st Mission Support Group and ASRCC, Vance AFB’s Base Operations Support contractor, to develop the project. The L-shaped relocatable modular building provides space for 15 offices, eight training classrooms, four operations rooms, a squadron briefing room, conference room, and a reception area. The facility’s exterior was designed with R-Panel metal siding and a TPO membrane roof. The interior utilizes vinyl covered gypsum on the walls and a combination of carpet tiles, vinyl composition tile, and sheet vinyl for the flooring. The heating and cooling of the facility is accommodated by 14 Bard Exterior Wall Mount ducted air-conditioners. As part of the design-build contract, Ramtech was responsible for providing all of the office and classroom furniture throughout the building, along with the site development including the building pad, the extension and connection of all utilities, and the fire sprinkler and alarm systems.
On Thursday, June 6th a ribbon-cutting ceremony and official opening was held at Vance Air Force Base for the relocatable modular building Ramtech designed and constructed for the new home of the 33rd Flying Training Squadron. The 17,284 square foot facility was developed as a five year operating lease and will provide more space for pilot training to allow Vance AFB to increase their pilot graduation rate to increase the number of pilots for the U.S. Air Force. The single-story complex provides space for eight training classrooms, 15 offices, conference room, a squadron briefing room, and an administrative reception area. As part of the contract, Ramtech was responsible for the development of the site including the building pad, extension and connection of all utilities, fire sprinkler and alarm systems, as well as providing all of the office and classroom furniture throughout the building. Ramtech is grateful to have played a part in developing the building and wishes to thank everyone at Vance AFB and all those who helped make this such a successful project.
Ramtech Begins Manufacturing of Modular Office Building for Dallas County Sheriff’s Department Academy
Ramtech has begun the manufacturing phase on the 25,243 square foot modular office building we are constructing for the Dallas County Sheriff’s Department Academy. Designed and developed using our slab-on-grade permanent modular construction process, the building will allow the Sheriff’s department to consolidate their training program for new recruits into one facility located 12 miles South of downtown Dallas in an unincorporated area of Dallas County.
The new modular office building will provide for two large basic training rooms, three large in-service training rooms, five offices for the senior staff, and a clerical area. There are also separate rooms for driving and shooting simulation, a library, and multiple storage areas. Ramtech will be responsible for the concrete foundation and providing one point of connection for all the utilities at the building line. The exterior incorporates a parapet wall design with a combination of 26 gauge steel siding and brick. The interior of the building was designed to accommodate a nine foot ceiling height throughout facility. The walls will be textured coated and painted, while the floors in designated areas will utilize sealed concrete, epoxy, vinyl composition tile, and carpet tiles. The heating and cooling of the building will be accommodated with zoned rooftop HVAC units.
The Dallas Sheriff’s Department Training Section is a licensed academy with the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE). The new training center will be in the same area as the Dallas Transitional Center, a residential reintegration facility for Lifestyle Management Inc. that was built using the same slab on grade permanent modular construction process. We expect to have the project completed prior to the end of August.
