MANSFIELD, Texas (PRWEB) October 16, 2019
Design-build commercial modular construction firm Ramtech Building Systems of Mansfield, Texas has announced that the company has begun the manufacturing phase on the 26 non-combustible steel framed modular sections that will make up a 22,680 square foot permanent modular building for Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) in Los Alamos, NM. The two-story facility will be built using Ramtech's Slab-on-Grade Permanent Modular Construction process, and will include an atrium, elevator, and two stairwells. The floor plan calls for 67 personal business offices in three sizes, along with an open office plan on both floors that can accommodate 12 freestanding office spaces using custom furniture cubicles. Designated as a Multi-Use Office Building (MUOB) project, the new facility will be installed adjacent to LANL's main headquarters located in Technical Area 3. Ramtech will complete the manufacturing part of the facility by the middle of November with the installation of the modular sections slated for the first quarter of 2020.
The facility will not be LEED certified but will require design and construction with materials specified to process and utilize sustainable methods. The turnkey project will also require Ramtech to perform all of the necessary site work including the extension and connection of utilities. The exterior finishes call for a permanent look using durable Hi-Rib horizontal metal panels at grade and an Exterior Insulation and Finish System (EIFS) with stucco textures that properly accents the buildings geometry. The roofing system will be a multi-layer SBS Modified Bitumen DOE "cool" installation. The interior materials and finishes will be chosen based upon the aesthetics, sustainability, durability, and ease of maintenance while providing a facility design that maximizes the working conditions for the building's occupants.
