Beelman River Terminal - Corrosive Storage - Project Profile

The Rundown

Fabric cladding, a hot dip galvanized steel frame and passive ventilation system make this terminal building ideal for corrosive storage. The white skylight area lets in more natural light to prevent the need for artificial lighting.

Customer Success

“It was a priority to get the new building operating quickly so we could continue our programming. They were totally committed to doing whatever was necessary to support our project.”

Steve Henry | OKC Tennis Center

“Legacy Building Solutions has given Solar Ship more than just a state-of-the-art hangar and assembly building. Through our close collaboration, their design incorporates a self-reliant photovoltaic power package that sits above the fabric roof, allowing our building operations to be entirely off-grid. In addition, Legacy’s foundation design allowed us to re-use an existing concrete pad, saving us time and money during construction. These innovations were part of our top-level requirements, and delivering on them really sets Legacy apart from the traditional building segment.”
