Legacy Building Solutions manufactures, designs, sells and installs fabric buildings on a rigid steel frame. Our company was founded after years of experience selling and installing fabric buildings worldwide.
We realized that rigid steel frames, long used in traditional construction, would give fabric buildings greater design flexibility and strength. Based on this experience, we created a now-patented attachment system for integrating fabric cladding with the steel frame.
Today we specialize in highly custom, large and specialty fabric structures. Our headquarters is in Minnesota; our buildings can be found in most U.S. states and Canadian provinces, as well as countries around the world. We’re dedicated to providing the highest-quality service along with the best fabric buildings in the industry.
We have staked our reputation on quality, safety and customer service. Our goal is constant improvement and constant innovation to our buildings and our processes.
We also strive to create long-term and rewarding relationships. Our in-house design, manufacturing and installation crews are held to the highest standards to better serve our customers.Learn More
