The two-story facility will be built using our Slab on Grade Permanent Modular Construction approach, and will include a two-story 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 in custom furniture cubicles. The Multi-Use Office Building (MUOB) project will be installed adjacent to LANL’s main headquarters located in Technical Area 3. (more…)
Ramtech recently completed two next generation portable classrooms for the Eanes Independent School District located in Austin, Texas. The innovative modular building project was a collaborative effort led by Pfluger Architects which began by using our industry standard portable double classroom design, then modifying the interior and exterior in order to create a new type of instructional environment dubbed the ‘Learning Studio’. Ramtech manufactured and installed both modular buildings at the school district’s Cedar Creek Elementary school location. Each 1,536 square foot facility features a bank of three seven-foot tinted aluminum framed awning windows that allow for increased lighting and ventilation. The standard 2×4′ box lighting was replaced with linear pendant fixtures that provide both direct and indirect light creating a more natural light quality. The typical wall-mounted through wall HVAC units that can create unwanted noise were replaced with split systems with a closet mounted air handler, outside condenser unit, and exposed spiral duct.
