Davenport IA - Public Transportation -Tension Fabric Garage

The Rundown

The city of Davenport, Iowa, uses a fabric structure as a city bus barn. The municipal building uses R-25 insulation and a skylight to control ongoing energy costs. Multiple overhead doors make it accessible by bus and staff.

Customer Success

“Our transportation system requires the diesel buses to be stored in a facility to keep them warm and protected from the elements. Legacy’s customized fabric structure design was able to fit our purposes. It was a good experience working with Legacy. Their in-house installation crew put up the building very quickly. They’re easy to work with and willing to help, and the communication with the city and responsiveness throughout the project was very good.”
