Ritz-Craft Corporation to Deliver Student Housing to Johnstown

Project will double housing available at FMCC

Ritz-Craft Corporation announced today it has been awarded a contract to manufacturer, deliver and install 64 modular units at Fulton-Montgomery Community College located in Johnstown, New York.

Installation of the two-story housing building, which will accommodate up to 144 students, will double the amount of housing currently offered by the college. The additional housing will include contemporary apartment-style living that can house three to four students. Each apartment is designed with its own kitchenette, living room and private bathroom.

“Ritz-Craft had the willingness to work with us on the technical side of the project. The result is going to be a testament of what modular construction can do” said David D’Amore of AND Architecture. David continued, “the importance of this project cannot be overstated for the student population. It doubles the capacity and provides students a safe environment in which to live. This project will allow the college to grow and meet their goals in expansion and growth.”

The U.S. Department of Agriculture awarded the college an $11 million loan to complete the project along with other renovations. Manufacturing is expected to begin early in 2012, with the building scheduled to open for the fall 2012 semester.
