The Rundown

The Legacy Building Solutions team designed and constructed this 57,600 sf tension fabric structure for an agricultural co-op to use as a commercial fertilizer distribution center.

Customer Success

“Cost was the initial factor for selecting Legacy, but once we saw the engineering that goes into their design, we understood that could make it easy for us to expand the building in later phases. We also liked its compatibility with conventional construction. There are a lot of possibilities we could explore in the future.

Working with Legacy was great. The guys who constructed the building worked under some really, really tough conditions, but they wrapped it up on the afternoon of Christmas Eve, and the building opened Christmas morning. Everyone was very responsive, and it was a pleasure to work with them. Once visitors got into the building and we experienced the interior environment with the heat flow and the insulation, we were very satisfied.”

“The old buildings used tubular steel, and no matter what you do, the salt gets inside the tubes and corrodes them. Legacy was very easy to work with. They came out here with their crew, rented all their equipment, and erected the buildings in three weeks flat – a week ahead of schedule. It’s a stand-up company.”
