Ramtech Begins Site Work and Manufacturing for New Randolph Field ISD High School Building
MANSFIELD, TX Ramtech Building Systems announces that the company has begun the site development work to prepare for the installation of a new high school facility for the Randolph Field Independent School District.
The design-build contract calls for Ramtech to provide complete turnkey services to the district using the company's Accelerated Building System prefabricated construction method for a 47,448-square-foot, two-story facility. To make way for the new $7.3 million school building, the school district demolished two existing structures which were removed during the spring of last year. The design of the new structure will provide space for 23 classrooms, an eighth grade science center, two computer labs, two student commons, and an administrative area with offices, counseling suite, and a nurse station. The facility will also include four high school level labs for physics, biology, chemistry, and environmental science all situated around a common central preparation area with chemical storage capability.
The building's exterior design calls for masonry on the first floor and a high profile custom-colored architectural metal siding in horizontal and vertical orientations designed to highlight the building entrances and complement the finishes of the existing campus structures. High-efficiency gas-fired rooftop HVAC units will provide heating and cooling on the second floor of the building, with zoned electrical HVAC units for the first floor. Ramtech began the manufacturing of the building in the middle last November and expects to begin the setting the modular sections during the first week of February.
