Ramtech Awarded Modular Building Contract For Denver International Airport Terminal Expansion Project
Ramtech has been selected by the Denver International Airport to build a 38,920 square foot facility as part of the second phase of an upgrade to the airport’s Concourse A Commuter Facility. Ramtech worked with Wong Strauch Architects, PC in a design assist role on developing the Type-IIb modular structure.
Ramtech will be responsible for the core and shell construction, including the exterior walls, doors, windows, the interior walls with gypsum board, required shear walls, complete floor and ceiling assemblies, and all the exterior wall and floor penetrations for mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems required for the phase 2B work. Ramtech will also be responsible for the installation of the building which will be set on a pier foundation. The building will be built as a co-op effort with Ramtech and other local general contractors.
RMD manufacturing will begin construction of the building the first week of May, with the module deliveries to the site starting in early June. The airport plans to use the new modular terminal for a minimum of 5 to 10 years while the permanent expansion of the airport’s Terminal A is developed.
