As a design-build modular provider that produces three distinct product lines (relocatable modular buildings, permanent modular construction and pre-fabricated construction), the demands placed on our design group are significant.
While there are many great manufacturing companies in this industry that produce outstanding projects, most specialize in a single product offering. Transitioning from something as simple as a portable classroom to a USACE multi-story Brigade / Battalion Headquarters building is not an easy chore. Seamlessly doing this year in and year out is a significant achievement and one that is often easy to overlook. For that reason, we felt a page devoted to our design capabilities was in order.
Since Ramtech’s founding, we have always placed a heavy emphasis on our design capabilities. Experienced, skilled designers across every discipline separate Ramtech from other companies within the commercial modular industry. These attributes allow Ramtech to confidently pursue complex projects that require sophisticated building structures and systems. Our architectural capabilities are unparalleled, within our industry, allowing us to produce efficient and economical building layouts and facades that are both highly functional and aesthetically pleasing. The core of our team is led by the following individuals:
