This 1,600 sf facility for Texas Tech University’s Department of Animal & Food Sciences provides space for a program that assesses the helpfulness of therapy dogs in educational settings including children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Ramtech constructed a traditional relocatable modular building on a concrete pier foundation with R-Panel exterior metal siding and a metal roof. The building includes a large activity room separated with a built-in folding partition, a combination waiting and break room, an office area with computer lab stations, and a washroom which meets BSL-2 (biosafety level 2) requirements. The wall between the activity room and office area has an observation window for private monitoring of the interactions between the patients and the therapy animals.
