MANSFIELD, Texas (PRWEB) March 26, 2019
Design-build construction firm Ramtech Building Systems of Mansfield, Texas has announced that the company has begun the manufacturing phase on a 25,243 square foot modular office building for the Dallas County Sheriff's Department Academy. Designed and developed using Ramtech's slab-on-grade permanent modular construction process, the building will allow the Sheriff's department to consolidate their training program for new recruits into one facility located 12 miles South of downtown Dallas in an unincorporated area of Dallas County.
The new modular office building will provide for two large basic training rooms, three large in-service training rooms, five offices for the senior staff, and a clerical area. There are also separate rooms for driving and shooting simulation, a library, and multiple storage areas. Ramtech will be responsible for the concrete foundation and providing one point of connection for all the utilities at the building line. The exterior incorporates a parapet wall design with a combination of 26 gauge steel siding and brick. The interior of the building was designed to accommodate a nine foot ceiling height throughout facility. The walls will be textured coated and painted, while the floors in designated areas will utilize sealed concrete, epoxy, vinyl composition tile, and carpet tiles. The heating and cooling of the building will be accommodated with zoned rooftop HVAC units.
The Dallas Sheriff’s Department Training Section is a licensed academy with the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE). The new training center will be in the same area as the Dallas Transitional Center, a residential reintegration facility for Lifestyle Management Inc. that was built using the same slab on grade permanent modular construction process. Ramtech expects to have the project completed prior to the end of August.
About Slab-on-Grade Permanent Modular Construction
Ramtech's slab-on-grade permanent modular construction offers the best of both off-site prefabrication and on-site construction techniques in order to produce a building faster and with less costs but identical in the look, functionality and life expectancy of a completely site-built structure. Ramtech accomplishes this by setting factory assembled modular sections complete with attached ceilings and walls - but no floors - directly onto a conventional concrete slab foundation. This allows the concrete slab to become the floor of the structure just like a site-built building. They will then site-apply all of the exterior and interior finishes, enabling them to provide their clients with a new facility faster and with less design and construction costs.
