Ramtech recently completed a 6,498 square foot modular health clinic in Elgin, Texas for Community Health Centers of South Central Texas. Known as the Family Health Center at Elgin, the free-standing facility replaces a small school-based clinic that the company operated using only two classrooms inside the local Elgin ISD’s Intermediate school. The new building, also located on Elgin ISD property near the District’s elementary school, provides 13 exam rooms for the clinic’s three providers, dental exam rooms, procedure room, multiple private offices, an x-ray room, lab and pharmacy areas, vaccination room, centralized nurses station, large reception and eligibility screening areas.
Using Type VB construction, the structure was built using Ramtech’s traditional pier and beam permanent modular construction process. Our scope of work included the manufacturing, installation, and finish-out of the modular sections which were all set on a concrete pier foundation. The parapet wall exterior of the building incorporates a combination of HardiePanel vertical siding along with a metal fascia band, while the facility’s interior is finished with vinyl covered gypsum walls together with luxury vinyl tile flooring.
Founded in 1966, Community Health Centers of South Central Texas operates nine facilities that serve patients in and around the greater Austin area providing family medicine, pediatrics, dental and behavioral health services. The new building will allow the clinic to triple its current patient load and expands their services to accommodate clients from a three-county area east of Austin.
