Ramtech Building is now in full production for the manufacturing phase of the 26 non-combustible steel framed modular sections that will make up a 22,680 square foot permanent modular building for Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) in Los Alamos, NM. The two-story facility will be built using our Slab-on-Grade Permanent Modular Construction process and will include an atrium, elevator, and two stairwells. The floor plan calls for 67 personal business offices in three sizes along with an open office plan on both floors that can accommodate 12 freestanding office spaces using custom furniture cubicles. Designated as a Multi-Use Office Building (MUOB) project, the new facility will be installed adjacent to LANL’s main headquarters located in Technical Area 3. We will complete the manufacturing part of the facility by the middle of November, and will begin the installation of the modular sections during the first quarter of 2020.
The facility will not be LEED certified but has been designed with materials specified to facilitate the process and utilization of sustainable methods. The turnkey project will also require us to perform all of the necessary site work including the extension and connection of utilities. The exterior finishes call for a permanent look using durable Hi-Rib horizontal metal panels at grade and an Exterior Insulation and Finish System (EIFS) with stucco textures that properly accents the buildings geometry. The roofing system will be a multi-layer SBS Modified Bitumen DOE “cool” installation. The interior materials and finishes will be chosen based upon the aesthetics, sustainability, durability, and ease of maintenance while providing a facility design that maximizes the working conditions for the building’s occupants.
