Ramtech has completed the manufacturing of the 36 modular sections that will make up the 26,312 square foot modular building addition for Denver International Airport’s Concourse A East Groundload Phase II Terminal Expansion. The modular construction project is part of the second phase of an upgrade and expansion of the airport’s Concourse A commuter facility that will connect to a 38,929 square foot modular building Ramtech previously constructed for DIA in 2018. The new addition will extend east toward the flightline and provide five additional gates for Frontier Airlines. The concourse building is being built as a co-op effort with other local contractors under a joint venture project between Turner Construction and Flatiron Construction.
Ramtech is responsible for the core and shell construction including the exterior walls, interior walls with applied gypsum board, all shear walls, complete floor and roof assemblies, and the exterior wall and floor penetrations for the mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems. The modular building will be set on an engineered concrete block pier foundation system and has been designed to meet a 160-mph enhanced windspeed. Ramtech worked with HNTB Corporation in a design-assist role for developing the Type-IIb modular structure. The installation phase is expected to commence during the first week of September and take six weeks to complete. Denver International Airport will use the new modular-built terminal for a minimum of five years while they continue to develop their permanent expansion plans.
