When the Ferris ISD facility planners were able to evaluate the construction options that were available to them, they chose Ramtech's traditional permanent modular construction approach
Mansfield, TX (PRWEB) January 20, 2015
Design-build construction firm Ramtech Building Systems of Mansfield, Texas has announced that the Ferris (TX) ISD school board has approved a design-build agreement with the company to proceed with providing preconstruction services for a 13,440-square-foot middle school classroom building. The 12 classroom facility, including one fully equipped science lab, would be built using the company's traditional wood-framed permanent modular construction approach. Ramtech would also be responsible for all site work and the extension and connection of the utilities. Current plans call for a full masonry exterior and roof mounted HVAC units. Site work and manufacturing of the modular building would begin in March, with the project scheduled to be complete prior to the start of the 2015-2016 school year.
Located south of Dallas in Ferris, Texas, the Ferris ISD serves students from the city of Ferris as well as the community of Trumbull and other rural areas in northeastern Ellis County. According to Gary White, Ramtech's VP of Sales, "When the Ferris facility planners were able to evaluate the three different construction options that we are able to provide, they chose our traditional permanent modular construction approach to provide them with the kind of facility they wanted and could also meet their budget." The proposed project will allow the district to consolidate some facilities by moving students into the new modular school building.
