Ramtech made the announcement this week of another large contract for the design, manufacture, and installation of three new modular buildings for First Baptist Church in Frisco, Texas.
This continues a string of new projects that have been secured through our continued focus on developing modular church building projects for faith-based organizations. Ramtech was chosen to provide the new facilities in order to meet the demand for additional space because of the churches rapidly growing congregation. The modular church buildings will accommodate FBC Frisco’s requirements for a second worship center, adult classrooms, and additional office and administrative space for the ministry staff.
The first building of the 23,386 square foot project will be a 6,750 square foot student worship center designed to accommodate a 13 foot high vaulted ceiling with exposed architectural ductwork and 12 classrooms. The other two buildings include an 8,060 square foot 14 classroom adult education facility with fellowship area, and a 8,576 square foot building with six classrooms and 14 private offices with adjacent administrative support areas for the ministry staff. All of the buildings will include men’s and women’s restrooms, and Ramtech will provide for the on-site construction activities including the site preparation, utilities, and a pad on grade building foundation. A HardiePanel exterior with a stucco finish will be utilized to match the masonry finish of the existing structures, while the interiors will feature vinyl covered gypsum wall coverings, commercial grade carpet on the floors, and lay-in tile ceilings. Ramtech will also provide canopies and the steps, ramps and landings for each building.
Started in 1902 in what was then only a one-horse train stop town, FBC Frisco is located in Collin County north of Dallas in one of the fastest growing cities in Texas. The Church expects to add 1,100 new members to an already large congregation, and anticipates using the buildings for a minimum period of four-years while permanent expansion plans that are slated for the future are developed. The multi-facility project is one of several current church building contracts that Ramtech has secured, including the recent contract for a 13,440 square foot 14-classroom modular school buildings for Immanuel Lutheran Christian Academy in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. In all of these cases, Ramtech’s ability to help the client with value engineering their facilities provided the key element in securing the contract by helping the client get the most out of their buildings at the best possible price.
