Design-build construction firm Ramtech Building Systems is well underway on the installation of the 65 modular sections that will make up the new 38,920 square foot modular building for Denver International Airport. The modular construction project is part of the second phase of an upgrade and expansion of the airport’s Concourse A commuter facility. The concourse building is being built as a co-op effort with other local contractors including Hensel Phelps who is the prime contractor for the project. Ramtech is responsible for the core and shell construction including the exterior walls, interior walls with applied gypsum board, all shear walls, complete floor and ceiling assemblies, and the exterior wall and floor penetrations for the mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems required for the Phase 2B work. The modular building is being set on a pier type foundation. Ramtech worked with Denver-based Wong Strauch Architects, PC in a design-assist role for developing the Type-IIb modular structure. RMD began the fabrication of the modular sections at the beginning of June which will run through July. The installation phase is expected to be complete by the middle of August. Denver International Airport will use the new modular-built terminal for a minimum of 5 to 10 years while the Airport develops and moves forward with it’s permanent expansion plans.
In late April Ramtech joined the Better Business Bureau and was immediately granted an Accredited Business Certification with an A+ rating. In Ramtech’s 35 year history, the BBB has yet to field a single compliant on Ramtech. This information was provided by the BBB at the time of the application and was astonishing to our business advisor considering Ramtech’s tenure and the litigious nature of the construction industry.
While this may be amazing to an outsider, it comes as no surprise to us. Our culture from day-one has been to “do-it-right” and exceed the customer’s expectations. In the commercial modular building industry, few companies have this outstanding track record. Whether it be Permanent Modular Construction (PMC) or relocatable buildings for education, government, medical or commercial applications, Ramtech’s team of designers, production associates as well as our construction group are poised to continue our sterling record of customer satisfaction.
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.
Ramtech won three coveted Awards of Distinction honors at this year’s Modular Building Institute World of Modular convention and trade show held in Tucson, Arizona on March 20. Ramtech received a first place award in the Relocatable Education category for the modular school campus we built for the Deweyville Independent School District that replaced the school district’s elementary school which was destroyed during the flooding in March of 2016. The relocatable modular project included eight standard portable classroom buildings, an 8,064 square foot eight classroom building, a 6,272 square foot multipurpose facility, and a 5,120 square foot cafeteria with a full-service commercial kitchen capable of accommodating 150 students. Ramtech also received a first place affiliate award in the Permanent Healthcare category for the Sandra Joy Anderson Community Health and Wellness Center for Huston Tillotson University in Austin, Texas. Ramtech was the manufacturer and installer of the 14,700 square foot modular medical clinic for the Black Diamond Group, the contractor for the project. (more…)
Ramtech is pleased to announce that Kyle Kelley has joined RBS’s project management group to assist in all service and repair work on all Ramtech-built modular buildings. Kyle has spent 17 years working for RMD, the manufacturing division of Ramtech, in all of the plant’s departments with a majority of his time in plumbing where he earned a Texas journeyman’s plumbing license. Kyle will assist the construction superintendents on specific job sites when there are tasks that don’t fall under the subcontractors scope of work, and he will also perform pre-start site visits when applicable to help the project managers determine what equipment, personnel, and pricing will be needed for smaller construction jobs. He will report to Randy Van Zandt, Ramtech’s V.P. of Construction. Please join us in welcoming Kyle to the RBS team.
