Case Study

Fertilizer Plant

50,400 sq ft Tension Fabric Building for Fertilizer Storage
Albert City, Iowa

Albert City Bulk Fertilizer Plant - Project Profile

The Rundown

One of our first bulk storage buildings, this structure is designed for transloading, storing, mixing and distributing fertilizer in Hartley, Iowa. The liner prevents dust from building up on the steel frame and increases the longevity of the structure.

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.”
