The Rundown

These clearspan fabric structures have a cast-in-place concrete foundation and hot dip galvanized solid web beam frames. The terminal storage buildings use eave extensions and rooftop exhaust vents to stay cool and dry inside.

Customer Success

“We obviously had contracts, but the overall feel was kind of like the olden days, where you felt you could just take somebody at their word. Everything that Legacy said they were going to do, they did. Price is a major factor in any purchase decision. But we didn’t blink at having to pay a little more for the Legacy structure. Sometimes you have to spend more to get a higher quality building.

The installation was very smooth. Legacy’s in-house crew worked in cold winter conditions, and they erected the building within five days. They were a very professional group, and I’d highly recommend them.

We like the sidewall columns going straight up instead of curving down like in our hoop buildings. First off, it lets us put more product in there. And our front-end loaders can get much closer to the walls and drive straight down the sides. It gives us more working room and increases our efficiency.

In the long run I think this will be a building that requires less maintenance. Legacy was so outstanding to work with that I didn’t even bother looking at pricing elsewhere.”
