Ramtech has recently received another order from Cleveland Independent School District for an additional two eight-classroom relocatable modular buildings for its Cleveland Middle School campus. This will bring the total number of Ramtech’s standard portable and multiple classroom wings installed this year at the district’s elementary, middle, and high school campuses to seven buildings. We will complete the manufacturing of the two new facilities this week, and expect to complete the installation phase by the middle of October. As with the previous facilities, the modular school buildings will utilize R-Panel metal siding for the exteriors, with vinyl covered gypsum walls and vinyl composition tile flooring in the interiors.

Ramtech has completed the installation phase on a new multiple classroom modular building for Mingo Valley Christian school in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The 13,440 square foot facility will accommodate 150 middle and upper- school students in a building layout that includes ten instructional classrooms, two science labs, an art room, and administrative office space. The value-engineered facility includes an R-panel metal siding exterior with wall hung HVAC units zoned for maximum heating and cooling efficiency. Ramtech’s scope of work on-site included the setting of the building on a pad prepared by the school’s contractor, and the installation of the floor carpet after the school performs the bulk of the interior finish-out work. The manufacturing of the modular sections was completed in April, and the project is scheduled for completion prior to the start of school in August. (more…)
This week Ramtech is set to begin installing the buildings for the temporary elementary school campus we have constructed for Deweyville ISD. This project was the result of the district’s needing to meet the challenge of relocating all of their elementary school students to their high school campus as a result of the Sabine River flooding that occurred in March of this year. The relocatable modular education project is a 36 month lease for 11 buildings. Ramtech finished the manufacturing of the final building at the end of last week. The first building to be installed is an 8,064 square foot eight classroom building. This will be followed by a 6,272 square foot multipurpose facility which will include an administrative section for the elementary school staff and the District’s superintendent. The building will have nine offices and a reception area, four bathrooms, a large conference room, computer lab, and a library. The other buildings include a 5,120 square foot cafeteria with a full-service kitchen capable of accommodating 150 students, and eight portable classroom buildings. Ramtech is also working on developing an 11,410 square foot pre-engineered steel building which will provide gymnasium space and a maintenance garage. Ramtech will be responsible for all of the site preparation including the soil remediation and the installation of a lift station. Ramtech is scheduled to complete the modular portion of the project prior to the start of school at the end of August.
Ramtech is nearing completion on a large modular building project that we began last year for Humble ISD. The $1.47 million project included 13 custom portable double-classroom buildings and a 8,820 square foot instructional life skills facility. To meet the aesthetic requirements of the local neighborhoods of the seven sites where the portable classroom buildings were installed, each were built with 20-year composition roofs that were installed at Ramtech’s outside corral. All of the buildings also have upgraded interiors which include birch wood grain paneling and special low VOC carpet. The life skills facility includes eight classrooms and to fully simulated apartments with kitchens and showers. There is also a conference room, three offices, and a teachers work room. All of the facilities were built to meet a 110 mile hour wind load specification and were procured through the Texas Buyboard network purchasing cooperative. Ramtech will finish installing the last portable classroom building for the project prior to the end of July and we plan to photograph the life skills facility for inclusion in our project portfolio prior to the start of the 2016-2017 school year.
To provide our customers with an up close and personal look at the features and benefits built into every Ramtech multiple classroom building, we recently installed a new four classroom facility adjacent to our corporate headquarters and manufacturing plant located in Mansfield, Texas. The modular school building contains finished and unfinished rooms to provide a complete view into how Ramtech designs, manufactures, and installs each of our facilities. Ranging in size from 4 to 16 classrooms, schools have a choice in how they can meet their facility requirements by using one of our standard floor plan designs or a customized version. As a full-service design-build construction company, this model building will help provide potential clients with a first-hand look at what can be done when using our approach to relocatable buildings and permanent modular construction.
