Ramtech has completed the construction on the new 37,329 square foot modular school building we built for Arlington Classics Academy (ACA) located at their eleven acre campus in Dalworthington Gardens, Texas. The design-build project was built using Ramtech’s Floorless Permanent Modular Construction method and will provide ACA with 24 standard classrooms able to accommodate increase the total attendance at the school to 528 elementary school students. The modular school building has five special use classrooms for the school’s art, music, speech, and special education programs, a cafeteria with a warming kitchen, administrative offices, a library annex with a tutoring center and learning lab, and a 3,000 square foot multipurpose exercise room with its own dedicated heating and cooling system. The requirements for the new facility called for Ramtech to provide full site development including the addition of two acres of paving to help ease the amount of vehicular traffic on the main feeder road during student drop-off and pickup times. To enhance the landscaping, an existing legacy grove of pecan trees was integrated into the site’s layout to maintain the aesthetics of the area’s original rural appearance. Requiring a collaborative effort with the school to secure community approval, this is the second permanent modular construction project that Ramtech has built for ACA, the first being a twelve-classroom wing addition at the charter school’s Bowen Road campus.
Ramtech will once again be entering two modular building entries into this year’s Awards of Distinction program at the Modular Building Institute’s World of Modular convention and trade show being held at the JW Marriott Tucson Starr Pass Resort & Spa March 17-20 in Tucson, Arizona. Ramtech will look to build on last year’s win for the University Of Texas Dallas teaching labs project by entering modular construction projects in both the Relocatable Modular and Permanent Modular categories in this year’s competition. The 31,752 square foot Dallas Transitional Center residential reintegration facility that we built for Corrections Corporation of America (CCA) has been entered in the Permanent Institutional or Assembly Category, while the temporary modular school campus completed for Deweyville Independent School District was placed in the Relocatable Education category. Ramtech will also be entering in the Marketing Multimedia category, our recently completed time-lapse video of the CCA project that visually demonstrates the Floorless Permanent Modular Construction process.

It is been quite a number of years since Ramtech has performed any significant work in Colorado, going back to several projects we did in the 90s for Hewlett-Packard and most recently a federal government project for Fort Carson. With the amount of activity in Colorado increasing across a number of market sectors Ramtech will begin looking for opportunities in both the education and commercial markets. Our first project will be for Hirschfeld Backhoe & Pipeline based in Longmont, Colorado. The company has been operating in several Colorado counties since 1972 and provides excavating services for sewer, water mains and storm lines. Ramtech will manufacture and install a 1,680 square foot modular building using our traditional permanent modular construction approach, providing space for four offices, a conference room, break room, and reception area. The building will utilize HardiePanel exterior vertical siding and will be pit set on a stem wall foundation to allow for a grade level appearance. Ramtech will begin production on the double-wide modular building this week and will install the two building sections in March in order to meet a scheduled April completion date.
