Design-build construction firm Ramtech Building Systems of Mansfield, Texas has announced that the company has begun the installation of a temporary school campus for the Deweyville Independent School District in Deweyville, Texas. The FEMA funded project includes 11 relocatable modular school buildings which will replace the district's elementary school which was lost during the southeast Texas area flooding during March of this year.

Design-build construction firm Ramtech Building Systems of Mansfield, Texas has announced that the company has begun the installation of a temporary elementary school campus for the Deweyville Independent School District in Deweyville, Texas. The relocatable modular school project is structured as a 36 month lease and includes a total of 11 buildings which will replace the district's elementary school that was lost as a result of the flooding during March of this year. All of the modular buildings are being installed at the district's high school in a specific sequence that facilitates the quickest finish-out of each facility. The first building is an 8,064 square foot eight classroom building which will then be followed by a 6,272 square foot multipurpose facility which includes an administrative section for the elementary school staff and the district's superintendent. This building will have nine offices and a reception area, four bathrooms, a large conference room, computer lab, and a library. The other buildings include a 5,120 square foot cafeteria with a full-service kitchen capable of accommodating 150 students, and eight of Ramtech's standard portable classroom buildings. Ramtech's scope of work for the project includes all of the site preparation including the soil remediation with a gravel road base, underground utilities, and the installation of a lift station.

Located in the southeast section of Texas near the Sabine River, the Deweyville area experienced torrential rains during March of this year which flooded over 5,000 homes and the school district's elementary school. Ramtech was brought into the FEMA funded project as a direct result of the experience the company had with providing West (TX) ISD with a complete campus under an accelerated timeframe when that district lost their middle school after a fertilizer plant exploded in April of 2013. In addition to the modular construction project, Ramtech is also working with the district on developing a 11,410 square foot pre-engineered building that will accommodate a gymnasium and maintenance garage.
