Ramtech won three coveted Awards of Distinction honors at this year’s Modular Building Institute World of Modular convention and trade show held in Tucson, Arizona on March 20.
Ramtech received a first place award in the Relocatable Education category for the modular school campus we built for the Deweyville Independent School District that replaced the school district’s elementary school which was destroyed during the flooding in March of 2016. The relocatable modular project included eight standard portable classroom buildings, an 8,064 square foot eight classroom building, a 6,272 square foot multipurpose facility, and a 5,120 square foot cafeteria with a full-service commercial kitchen capable of accommodating 150 students. Ramtech also received a first place affiliate award in the Permanent Healthcare category for the Sandra Joy Anderson Community Health and Wellness Center for Huston Tillotson University in Austin, Texas. Ramtech was the manufacturer and installer of the 14,700 square foot modular medical clinic for the Black Diamond Group, the contractor for the project.
In the Permanent Institutional or Assembly category, Ramtech received an honorable mention award for the Dallas Transitional Center residential reintegration facility we built for Corrections Corporation of America. The 31,752 square foot project built used our Floorless Permanent Modular Construction process and provided space for 296 residents in eight dorms, including a full commercial kitchen, two large activity rooms, and administrative office space.
