Mansfield, TX (PRWEB) September 17, 2014
Ramtech Building Systems, Mansfield, Texas has announced that Pedernales Electric Cooperative (PEC) has opened a new modular office building built by Ramtech at the company's existing Marble Falls, TX site. The new 2,255 square foot payment processing office will serve the company on an interim basis while Pedernales Electric evaluates plans to develop a new site in the future to meet their expected growth and customer service needs. The Type V wood frame structure features a canopy-covered vehicle drive-through with a bullet resistant teller window, along with an entrance to the facility that incorporates an ornate set of wood steps and ramps designed to meet all accessibility standards. Heating and cooling of the building is accommodated with a five-ton split system zoned to accommodate the walk-up payment lobby, a large office room, two open office areas, and a break room. The interior office areas are finished out with VCG walls and a combination of VCT and carpet floor coverings, while the exterior utilizes a factory applied HardiePanel fiber cement vertical siding. According to Gary White, Ramtech's VP of sales, "Pedernales Electric needed a facility that would meet their interim needs, but they didn't want to compromise on quality. Ramtech was able to deliver a modular building that was both highly functional and attractive in its curb appeal."
