Past Concrete & Department of Transportation Projects
RAM Construction Services began working on an extensive project located in St. Paul, Minnesota. The ongoing assignment consists of various highway bridges to be coated with a penetrating crack sealer application as well as two layers of an epoxy-urethane blend waterproofing system. This 3-layer system ensures a substantial improvement in the quality of the concrete bridge decks and enhances their overall skid resistances. View Details
Michigan State University had teamed up with award winning and world renowned Architect and Designer Zaha Hadid to design the innovative and eccentric MSU Broad Art Museum. With such a high profile building and the priceless art that would be housed in it, RAM was in charge of waterproofing the underslab of the basement, foundation walls and plaza areas to guarantee a water tight foundation.

RAM Construction Services was contracted to perform the restoration which consisted of concrete demolition, installation of new reinforcing steel, and placement of shotcrete in a section of the tunnel. Project logistics, traffic control, unique working hours, and daily project mobilization, combined with the continued operation of the tunnel, created an extremely challenging project. View Details
