Design-build commercial modular construction firm Ramtech Building Systems of Mansfield, TX is nearing completion of a multi-unit multiple location modular building project for Humble (TX) Independent School District. The $1.47 million project includes 13 custom portable classrooms installed at four of the District's elementary schools, Woodcreek Middle School, and Atascocita High School, along with an 8,820 square foot life skills instructional facility developed for their Community Learning Center location. To meet the aesthetic requirements of the local neighborhoods adjacent to the seven schools where the relocatable modular buildings were installed, Ramtech substituted its standard metal roof with a 20-year composition roof installed at the company's manufacturing facility. All of the custom portable classrooms and the life skills building were constructed and installed to meet the Houston area's 110 mile hour wind load specification. The school district also chose to upgrade the interiors of the double classrooms to include wood grain birch paneling on the walls and special low VOC carpet flooring in the classrooms. The life skills facility was designed to include instructional space for eight classrooms and two fully-simulated apartments with kitchens and showers. The building also has areas for a conference room, three administrative offices, and a teachers work room. Ramtech expects to finish installing the remaining portable classroom buildings for the project prior to the end of July for the start of the 2016-2017 school year.

With 43 campuses at locations within a 90 square mile area, the Humble ISD serves over 39,000 students from the communities of Humble, Atascocita, Kingwood, Fall Creek, and Eagle Springs. The district is one of the 25 fastest-growing school districts in Texas and has had an aggressive building program for a number of years. In 2015, the Humble ISD also acquired ten of the identical custom portable classrooms from Ramtech for use at six of the district's campuses.
