Ramtech has announced the purchase of four modular buildings by Humble Independent School District. The district purchased two of Ramtech’s industry standard portable double classrooms, a multiuse building with two classrooms and two offices, and a 576 square foot boys and girls restroom facility. As a long-time customer of Ramtech, beginning in 2005 Humble ISD has purchased 35 buildings which are currently in use at eleven of its 43 campuses. The facilities include portable classrooms, restroom facilities, combination classroom and office buildings, and a life skills facility for their innovative MOSAIC transition program. Designed for students who received special education services through a modified high school curriculum and are ready to actively transition into young adult life, the building features instructional space for eight classrooms, two fully-simulated apartments with kitchens and showers, and a retail store for the sale of student manufactured items.
To meet the aesthetic requirements of the local neighborhoods where the relocatable modular buildings are being installed, Ramtech substituted its standard metal roof with a 20-year composition roof installed at our plant. The school district also chose to upgrade the interiors of the portables by using wood grain birch paneling on the walls and special low VOC carpet flooring. All of the buildings were constructed and will be installed to meet the Houston area’s 110-mile hour wind load specification. Ramtech expects to finish the installation of the four recently purchased buildings during the beginning of the summer recess.
