Fabric Building Information for Municipalities

Government entities are tasked with the safety of citizens and using taxpayer money responsibly. Cities, counties, states and townships have a history of using fabric buildings for salt and sand storage, large area maintenance and repair shelters (LAMS), airplane hangars and more.

Once installed, Legacy buildings don’t require you to perform maintenance. Your workers will better focus on the needs of your municipality and spend less time and funding maintaining the structure.


The versatility of fabric buildings is another benefit. With a custom length, width, peak height and sidewall clearance, Legacy fabric buildings accommodate any equipment, storage materials or job. Adding features such as specialty doors, ventilation or a lean-to makes your structure meet your exact needs.

Lightweight fabric buildings are designed for multiple surfaces using almost any foundation. Design-build engineering ensures Legacy buildings can be constructed on a steep grade, on any soil or sand. If soil conditions are a concern, a simple foundation is often ideal – including a micropile or earth anchor foundation type.


Portability is another advantage of fabric buildings, especially on leased land or when the building will be relocated. Your fabric structure can be taken down, shipped and re-erected in another area. Architectural fabric is lighter and cheaper to transport than steel, and no nail or bolt holes will need to be matched up at the new site.

Fabric buildings are available with a clear span design exceeding 300 feet wide and any length. This open space with no interior columns allows for easy maneuvering, maximum storage space and less chance of accidental damage. Plenty of space for maneuvering means safer, more efficient work.

Fabric is a completely non-corrosive building material. This makes it hands-down the best material for storing corrosives such as salt and fertilizer, and also for withstanding harsh environmental conditions. A building that will last for decades will ultimately be more cost-effective than a building that must frequently be replaced due to corrosion.

A fabric storage structure also allows you to take advantage of bulk rates and low prices when available. Safekeeping bulk matter in a storage building will keep it safe from the elements until you need it.

Legacy works with private individuals and corporations and government entities large and small. Our engineer and building designers work with architects and engineers in your area to ensure we meet local building codes and submit stamped drawings and renderings as needed.
