RAM Construction was started in 1976 by Jack Brumley Jr. At its beginning, the company specialized in industrial civil construction and concrete work, gradually branching out in the eighties and nineties to high-rise commercial buildings, tilt wall warehousing and prefabricated metal buildings and overhead crane systems.
As unique challenges have been encountered over the decades, RAM has emerged as a leader in the specialty of building modification and repair. One example is a church burnout in Vidor, TX left the center 50% of the building ruined while the wings were still usable. RAM helped the congregation maximize their insurance dollars by cutting out the center of the building and joining the intact wings into a new prefabricated structure, saving hundreds of thousands. Another example is an industrial customer who was re-tooling a plant and needed an additional twenty feet of headroom in their building. With seemingly no choice but to dismantle and rebuild they turned to RAM who engineered a solution and was able to raise the roof of their existing building, saving over 50% of the project budget for the customer.
