The middle school students of Hardin-Jefferson Independent School District in Sour Lake, Texas closed out their first school year in a temporary middle school campus built Ramtech after the devastating flooding that occurred along the Texas Gulf Coast in August of last year. The 36,908 square foot modular construction project was installed on the grounds of the school district’s high school, and will serve as a replacement for Henderson Middle School until a new permanent facility can be constructed in the future. The relocatable modular school buildings that make up the interim use facility include 34 classrooms inside 17 portable classroom buildings, a full-service cafeteria and dining hall, two modular toilet facilities, boys and girls locker rooms, a library, and an administrative office area. The buildings all use light sand colored R-Panel metal siding on the exteriors, and are finished-out with lay-in ceilings, vinyl covered gypsum walls, and a combination of commercial grade carpet and vinyl composition tile flooring for the interiors. Heating and cooling of the structures are accommodated by Bard exterior wall-mounted HVAC units. Ramtech completed its scope of work in 45 days, beginning in mid-September and less than two weeks after the Sour Lake community’s receiving over 61 inches of rain. (more…)

Using one of our standard classroom inventory designs, the value-engineered facility utilizes an R-panel metal siding exterior with wall-mounted HVAC units zoned for maximum heating and cooling efficiency. Ramtech’s scope of work on-site included the setting of the building on a pad prepared by the school’s contractor. Once power is provided to the site, Ramtech will finish the remaining interior work including the vinyl composition tile flooring. (more…)
