Ramtech has added to its crop of Awards of Distinction trophies with another first place award at the World of Modular, the Modular Building Institute’s annual convention and trade show held this year March 24-27 at the Hilton Bonnet Creek in Orlando, Florida. Ramtech extended our winning streak over the last three years by picking up a first place award in the ‘Temporary Office Under 5000 square feet’ category for the 4,320 square foot modular buildings we built and installed at the White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico for the Multinational Medium Extended Air Defense System program.
Performed under a design-build modular construction contract for El Paso-based CF Jordan Construction with design input from Jacobs Engineering, the facility provides for office and engineering space to support the final system integration and flight test activities for the NATO-managed MEADS project, a multinational joint venture comprised of MBDA in Italy, LFK in Germany, and U.S. based Lockheed Martin. The $4.2 billion program is a ground-based Air and Missile Defense System that will incorporate the hit-to-kill PAC-3 MSE missile in a system that includes 360-degree surveillance and fire control sensors, netted-distributed battle management communication centers, and high-firepower launchers.
The MBI Awards of Distinction contest is the commercial modular industry’s premier awards program, with competition in over 30 categories for the MBI’s member organizations including building manufacturers, dealers, and product and service providers. Finished project entries are accepted for temporary, permanent, and renovated modular buildings, as well as a new green building design category that provides both MBI members and college and university students the opportunity for world-class recognition. Each building entry is judged on architectural excellence, technical innovation, cost effectiveness, energy efficiency, and calendar days to complete by an impartial panel of industry and non-industry construction and code experts, architects, and engineers.
