The speed of permanent modular construction using Ramtech’s Accelerated Building System is on full display as Ramtech began setting the first of 37 modules last week for the new Dallas Transitional Center residential reintegration facility for Lifestyle Management Inc. of Edmond, Oklahoma.
To date 23 modular units have already been crane-set into place while the third and last concrete section for the final 14 modules is readied. The plumbing, fire sprinkler pipes, and secondary water barrier installation have also begun on the 31,752 square foot project, located 12 miles south of downtown Dallas on a ten acre portion of an existing 57 acre site owned by Dallas County. When complete, the building will accommodate up to 296 clients in a facility that includes four 50-man dorms, three 24-man dorms, one 24-woman dorm, two classrooms, a full commercial kitchen, and administrative office space. The modular building project includes four fully developed acres to accommodate the residential reintegration facility, 40 parking spaces, two basketball courts, and two covered pavilions.
