By Curtis Sell Jr., Project Manager
The City of Ramsey hired RJM Construction to build a new 68,000-square-foot public works and fleet maintenance facility to replace the outdated existing facility. Our municipal team is currently heading into the final phases of the project, with scheduled completion in September 2021. Our Virtual Design Lead, Jake Fisher, caught a good view of the project with a drone, showing the clear difference between the old and new facilities.
We welcomed this opportunity to offer our Construction Manager Agency (CMa) services to the team at Ramsey, as well as having the pleasure to work once again with our frequent community-market design partner Oertel Architects.
As we head into the final phases on the exterior, curbing and first lift of asphalt is complete, and landscaping is ongoing. Fencing and the fuel island installation are in progress. Interior work now involves painting, ceramic tile and ceiling grid installation in the office areas. Taking place in the maintenance bay and shop areas are ongoing rough-ins, followed by painting.
MEP components relating to power, compressed air, and water connections are all especially critical to the operation of this type of facility. Our project team is working closely with all subcontractors to ensure all goes according to the design vision and owner expectations.
We look forward to the opening of this new public works facility that will serve the City of Ramsey for years to come!
