The Rundown

When state regulations required a permanent facility for road salt storage, the city of Bethel Park installed a fabric structure on a steel frame. Bethel Park worked with Legacy to procure a custom building 45 feet wide and 260 feet long, designed and installed within a tight timeline and on a difficult site.

Customer Success

“Our salt is delivered by rail cars to a large pit next to the storage structure. A conveyor system hoists it from pit to building. Legacy was the only company we talked to that could supply trusses strong enough to support the conveyors.”

O.J. Rinehart

“Everyone at Legacy was responsive and super friendly throughout the process. The estimate was what we wanted, they gave us a realistic timeframe, and the style of the building gives us more useable space and a more robust frame than the other options we considered. Construction was so easy – the crews showed up and were completely self-contained. The entire project was boom – done – easy.”
