When the Arlington, TX, Independent School District made the decision to move from half-day kindergarten classes to a full-day kindergarten curriculum, they faced an immediate need for double their existing kindergarten classroom space. Ramtech provided 117 permanent modular classrooms across 38 separate campus locations in less than 15 months, with the total project costs coming in under budget for the district. Each building was designed to integrate with the existing architecture, including grade level entries with covered walkways to the main structure.
