The Beaumont ISD project is using Ramtech’s Slab-on-Grade Permanent Modular Construction approach. The foundation prep is almost complete and the 17 modules that make up the building will be crane set next week.
Ramtech has completed the construction on the new 37,329 square foot modular school building we built for Arlington Classics Academy (ACA) located at their eleven acre campus in Dalworthington Gardens, Texas. The design-build project was built using Ramtech’s Floorless Permanent Modular Construction method and will provide ACA with 24 standard classrooms able to accommodate increase the total attendance at the school to 528 elementary school students. The modular school building has five special use classrooms for the school’s art, music, speech, and special education programs, a cafeteria with a warming kitchen, administrative offices, a library annex with a tutoring center and learning lab, and a 3,000 square foot multipurpose exercise room with its own dedicated heating and cooling system. The requirements for the new facility called for Ramtech to provide full site development including the addition of two acres of paving to help ease the amount of vehicular traffic on the main feeder road during student drop-off and pickup times. To enhance the landscaping, an existing legacy grove of pecan trees was integrated into the site’s layout to maintain the aesthetics of the area’s original rural appearance. Requiring a collaborative effort with the school to secure community approval, this is the second permanent modular construction project that Ramtech has built for ACA, the first being a twelve-classroom wing addition at the charter school’s Bowen Road campus.
Ramtech Nearing Completion of Finish-out Phase On Arlington Classics Academy Permanent Modular Building
Ramtech Building is now nearing completion of the interior and exterior finish-out phase on the construction of the new 37,329 square foot modular school building for Arlington Classics Academy. Located on the charter school’s eleven acre campus in Dalworthington Gardens, Texas, the design-build project is being built using our Accelerated Building System (ABS) permanent modular construction method. Once completed, the facility will provide 24 standard classrooms to accommodate up to 192 elementary school students in the school’s third through fifth grades. The building will have five special use classrooms for the art, music, speech, and special education programs, a cafeteria with a warming kitchen, administrative offices, a library annex with a tutoring center and learning lab, and a 3,000 square foot multipurpose exercise room with its own dedicated heating and cooling. The requirements for the new facility called for Ramtech to provide the 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 times. The manufacturing of the building sections began concurrently with the site work at the end of April. The crane setting of the 45 modular sections that make up the wood frame structure began in September and were done in three phases to allow for the installation and concrete pouring to take place simultaneously in order to speed up the project timeline. The building has a masonry exterior using brick and split-faced block along with stucco applied accent several areas. The parapet wall design ranges in height from 13 to 18 feet and will help to enhance the buildings aesthetics while also meeting the design requirements stipulated by the city. Ramtech expects the project to be completed by the middle of February.
The following is a page that was recently added to all of Ramtech’s websites (www.ramtechmodular.com, www.ramtecheducation.com, and www.ramtechmedical.com). As a design-build modular provider that produces three distinct product lines (relocatable modular buildings, permanent modular construction and pre-fabricated construction), the demands placed on our design group are significant. While there are many great manufacturing companies in this industry that produce outstanding projects, most specialize in a single product offering. Transitioning from something as simple as a portable classroom to a USACE multi-story Brigade / Battalion Headquarters building is not an easy chore. Seamlessly doing this year in and year out is a significant achievement and one that is often easy to overlook. For that reason, we felt a page devoted to our design capabilities was in order.

Ramtech has completed the construction on the Dallas Transitional Center residential reintegration facility that we built for Lifestyle Management Inc. of Edmond, Oklahoma. Located 12 miles south of downtown Dallas, the 31,752 square foot 296 bed facility was designed, manufactured, and constructed using our Accelerated Building System permanent modular construction method. Located on ten acres of unincorporated land owned by Dallas County, the new facility replaced Lifestyle’s previous 225-bed halfway house in Dallas. The building layout provides for four 50-man dorms, three 24-man dorms, one 24-woman dorm, two activity rooms, a full commercial kitchen, and administrative office space in both wings. Ramtech was responsible for the full site development of the four acres required to accommodate the building, 40 parking spaces, basketball courts, and two covered pavilions. The Dallas Transitional Center contracts with the Texas Department of Criminal Justice to provide halfway house residents with case management, employment placement and reintegration services. The program also provides meals and transportation to treatment programs, jobs, and medical appointments.
