MANSFIELD, Texas, March 21, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Design-build commercial modular construction firm Ramtech Building Systems of Mansfield, Texas announced that the company received their first Best of Show award and two Awards of Distinction at the Modular Building Institute's 2020 World of Modular annual convention and trade show held on March 9-12 at the Rosen Shingle Creek Hotel in Orlando, Florida. Ramtech received the Best of Show award and an Award of Distinction in the Relocatable Office category for a modular office building that the company manufactured and installed at the Fort Hood, Texas operations center of Dominion Energy. The design-build project was a joint venture between Ramtech and Wilmot Modular Structures of White Marsh, Maryland. The project design criteria required high end finishes, sustainable materials, energy saving practices, and the ability to relocate and expand the building in the future. "Winning the Best of Show award from our peers in the commercial modular industry is an honor," said Matt Slataper, President of Ramtech. "It's a testimony to the dedication of our people and the collaborative team approach that we bring to every project we do."
The second Award of Distinction was in the Permanent Special Application category for a 1,080 square foot in-plant employee breakroom, developed for Martin Marietta at the company's Midlothian (Texas) cement plant. The facility was constructed using traditional modular construction with atypical ten-foot-wide modules in order to fit within an area surrounded by the extensive piping and rigging of one of the cement plant's kilns. The project required a small on-site construction footprint to minimize the impact on Martin Marietta's existing operations. Because most of the interior and exterior finishes and the mechanical and electrical work were done in Ramtech's manufacturing plant, the facility was installed on a weekend and finished out in under two weeks.
The 2020 Modular Building Institute Awards of Distinction program included hundreds of entries in categories for relocatable, permanent, and renovated modular buildings, as well as for marketing and promotional pieces. The Awards of Distinction competition includes over 30 categories for relocatable and permanent modular buildings, and facilities that were renovated for reuse. MBI member companies may submit entries that are reviewed by an impartial panel of industry and non-industry construction and code experts, architects, and engineers for architectural excellence, technical innovation, sustainability, cost effectiveness, energy efficiency, and calendar days to complete.
