The Mac Haik dealership general manager realized that Ramtech could provide a true commercial office facility with all the curb appeal and longevity of a real permanent building
Mansfield, TX (PRWEB) November 29, 2012
Ramtech Building Systems, Mansfield, TX has announced that the company has completed work on a new 2,688 square foot permanent modular building for Mac Haik Automotive Group in Hutto, TX. The new prefabricated building will be used as a pre-owned sales center that is connected with the Automobile Division's Georgetown, Texas-based Ford dealership. The company officially took occupancy of the building on during November and expects to be fully operational by December 1, 2012.
Built using traditional permanent modular construction, the wood framed four-unit complex features eight sales offices with 40 x 60 windows for easy viewing between rooms, a large customer waiting area, and an employee break room. The interior is finished with vinyl covered gypsum on the walls, and Allure resilient laminate wood planks for the flooring. The exterior features a parapet wall design and HardiePanel vertical siding with a stucco finish, while the roof is covered with a TPO thermoplastic roofing membrane. The step and ramp assembly utilizes the environmentally friendly Trex Decking and Railing system made from reclaimed plastic and wood. The heating and cooling of the facility is accommodated with two 3-ton wall-mounted package units, zoned for maximum energy efficiency. According to Gary White, Ramtech's vice president of sales and estimating, “the dealership initially was looking at modular buildings based on mobile home type specifications, but quickly realized that Ramtech could provide a true commercial office facility with all the curb appeal and longevity of a real permanent building".
