Ramtech has completed the final phase of the installation of the temporary school campus we built for the Deweyville Independent School District in Orange, Texas. The relocatable modular school project is structured as a 36-month lease and includes a total of eleven buildings which replaced the district’s elementary school that was destroyed during the flooding which occurred in March of this year.
All of the modular buildings were installed at the district’s high school in a specific sequence in order to facilitate the quickest finish-out of the classroom buildings so the district could begin school on time in August. The first set of buildings included an 8,064 square foot eight classroom building which was then followed by a 6,272 square foot multipurpose facility. This building includes an administrative section with nine offices for the elementary school staff and the district’s superintendent. The building also has a reception area, four bathrooms, a large conference room, computer lab, and a library.
Ramtech also provided eight standard portable classroom buildings to complete the instructional space requirements. The final building to be completed was a 5,120 square foot cafeteria with a full-service commercial kitchen capable of accommodating 150 students. Each of the modular buildings are interconnected with elevated covered walkways. The modular school campus was sited on raw land adjacent to the District’s high school and required full site development including new parking lots, a bus lane, and a student drop-off area.
