The Rundown

The Ontario Airport was in the process of a major renovation. The buildings we installed were cargo storage units that met the client’s needs on four levels: it kept them on schedule, it gave them a customized structure, it was a naturally ventilated building that saved them money, and it gave them a structure with a long life span.

Customer Success

“Legacy Building Solutions has given Solar Ship more than just a state-of-the-art hangar and assembly building. Through our close collaboration, their design incorporates a self-reliant photovoltaic power package that sits above the fabric roof, allowing our building operations to be entirely off-grid. In addition, Legacy’s foundation design allowed us to re-use an existing concrete pad, saving us time and money during construction. These innovations were part of our top-level requirements, and delivering on them really sets Legacy apart from the traditional building segment.”
