Ramtech is continuing to work through the complications of a rainy spring as we prepare the foundation for the second of two modular buildings being constructed for First Baptist Carrollton Church in Carrollton, Texas.
Even though the weather has been a nuisance, one of the benefits of modular construction is the ability to quickly set and weather-in the complete structure so that the interior finish-out process can begin. This 26,624 square foot project is utilizing our pier and beam permanent modular construction process to provide two education buildings as part of the church’s relocation from its current location. The first building, a 10,624 square foot facility for adults has already been installed and the interior work is proceeding well. This building incorporates a central corridor with seven classrooms and men’s and women’s restroom facilities on either side.
The second building’s grade beam foundation with drilled and belled piers is being done in three sections and will be complete before the end of May, allowing for the installation of the 16,000 square foot building at the first of June. This facility will provide space for two large worship areas, six classrooms, and a boys and girls restrooms for the middle and high school programs. Both structures have been designed with parapet walls and full masonry exteriors, TPO roofs, and split system HVAC units. The interiors will utilize vinyl covered gypsum for the walls and a combination of carpet tile, vinyl composition tile, and sheet vinyl for the flooring. Ramtech is also installing fire sprinkler systems in each building.
First Baptist Carrollton plans to relocate from its original Carrollton campus on Josey Lane to its new location known as The Fields at Carrollton Parkway. The church opened their Sports and Recreation Complex there in 2011, then in 2016 opened a second campus for worship and Bible study known as the Church at the Fields. The new modular buildings will sit adjacent to each other as part of a master plan that also includes a new site-built multipurpose worship facility and office buildings for the ministry staff. The project is slated to be complete and ready for occupancy this summer.
