Design-build construction firm Ramtech Building Systems is well underway on the installation of the 65 modular sections that will make up the new 38,920 square foot modular building for Denver International Airport. The modular construction project is part of the second phase of an upgrade and expansion of the airport’s Concourse A commuter facility. The concourse building is being built as a co-op effort with other local contractors including Hensel Phelps who is the prime contractor for the project. 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 ceiling assemblies, and the exterior wall and floor penetrations for the mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems required for the Phase 2B work. The modular building is being set on a pier type foundation. Ramtech worked with Denver-based Wong Strauch Architects, PC in a design-assist role for developing the Type-IIb modular structure. RMD began the fabrication of the modular sections at the beginning of June which will run through July. The installation phase is expected to be complete by the middle of August. Denver International Airport will use the new modular-built terminal for a minimum of 5 to 10 years while the Airport develops and moves forward with it’s permanent expansion plans.

Ramtech to Begin Work on New Permanent Modular Building for Arlington (TX) Classics Academy Charter School
Ramtech has received a notice to proceed from Arlington Classics Academy to begin the manufacturing and construction of a new 37,329 square foot prefabricated school building that will located on the charter school’s eleven acre campus in Dalworthington Gardens, Texas. The design-build project will be built using our Accelerated Building System (ABS) construction method and will provide space for up to 192 students in grades three thru five. Once completed, the facility will provide space for 24 standard classrooms and five special use classrooms for the school’s art, music, speech, and special education programs. The building will also include a full cafeteria and kitchen, administrative offices for the staff and counselors, a library annex and tutoring center with learning lab, and a 3,000 square foot multipurpose exercise room with its own dedicated heating and cooling zone. The requirements for the new building call for full site development including two acres of additional paving which will help ease the amount of vehicular traffic on the main feeder road during student drop-off and pickup. An existing legacy grove of pecan trees has also been integrated into the site design to maintain the original aesthetics of the site location while preventing the need for their removal. The Type V wood frame structure will be wrapped in a 100% masonry exterior using brick and split-faced block, with stucco applied to the accented areas. Parapet walls ranging in height from 13 to 18 feet will enhance the buildings aesthetics while also meeting the design requirements of the city of Dalworthington Garden. Manufacturing of the building sections have already begun and the site work is scheduled to begin the week of May 9th. Once the manufacturing and site work is complete, the crane setting of the 45 modular sections that make up the structure will be set onto the concrete slab during the first week of August. The project has an anticipated completion date of January 15, 2017.
