Fabric Structures for Port, Waterway and Terminal Storage

Legacy Building Solutions customizes fabric structures for port storage applications including breakbulk, bulk and container storage. Every step from custom building design through installation is designed to maximize your investment and improve efficiency at the terminal.

Custom Design-Build Project Management

Legacy is the only fabric structure company with design-build and design-assist technology. Our experienced team designs the entire building around your operation. We model the building size and shape around piles to be stored, then add material handling equipment, climate control systems, dehumidifiers and other collateral loads to make moving product in, out and around the building more efficient.

Every aspect of the building is custom designed, including the foundation. With a lightweight fabric cladding and a sturdy steel frame, various foundation options are available to account for soil conditions and differential settlement at port or in mooring areas..

Bulk, Breakbulk and Container Storage with Lower Life Cycle Costs

Need to lower operating costs? Legacy buildings have natural light streaming in through the walls and ceiling, saving on artificial lighting cost – or add a skylight for maximum daylighting capacity with no leaks or drips throughout the life of the building.

The weatherproof fabric membrane also maintains a more consistent indoor temperature, stopping the formation of mold, mildew and condensation. You’ll have the capacity to store commodities and agricultural products without spoilage, plus more space for import and export goods such as fertilizer, salt and machinery components.

And fabric cladding is longest-lasting in harsh, damp marine environments. The fabric itself is invulnerable to rust, and the solid steel frame is hot dip galvanized for longevity in a wet or corrosive environment.

Safety First

Local safety regulations and port authority safety requirements are also accounted for in the building’s engineering. Legacy’s rigid frame buildings are engineered to meet codes for wind load, snow or seismic load, as well as additional collateral loads on the building from operational or life-safety equipment.

As port operations change, fabric structures may be relocated, expanded or demounted as needed. The structure will be assembled in the new location without construction waste.

The best port storage buildings are customized, less expensive to operate and designed for safety. The best port and marine storage buildings are from Legacy Building Solutions.
