Ramtech has secured a contract to provide a 22,680 square foot modular building at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) in Los Alamos, NM. The two-story facility will be built using our Slab on Grade Permanent Modular Construction approach, and will include a two-story 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 in custom furniture cubicles. The Multi-Use Office Building (MUOB) project will be installed adjacent to LANL’s main headquarters located in Technical Area 3.
The Non-LEED building will require design and construction with materials specified to process and utilize 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. We expect to begin the manufacturing of the 26 non-combustible steel framed modular sections beginning in the summer after 100% design approval has been achieved. The anticipated completion date of the permanent modular building project is March 2020.
