Project Profile Case Study

The Rundown 

Lee County, Florida, uses three fabric structures for municipal compost drying. Using corrosion resistant building materials will help the building last longer when exposed to corrosive materials and salty air.

Customer Success

“The design was flawless. It was an engineer’s dream as far as getting through the submittal process, which took less than a month. Legacy͛s response time was basically immediate.

There is better clearance with the Legacy buildings. You can drive a loader pretty much right up against the walls and still have room to maneuver. The other structures aren’t built that way. There’s probably about six to eight feet of space on the sides that are not accessible with a loader because the trusses are in the way.

Legacy’s crew was extremely professional. They met all our safety requirements and did an excellent job. They even provided an extensive final completion checklist with pictures of each item. That was very impressive, and it really demonstrated the level of workmanship they expected of themselves.”
