Rockwood Lithium - CHILE

The Rundown

Tension fabric buildings don’t have to be all fabric. This structure is designed with concrete and reinforced panels on the walls. The mining building in South America has the benefits of natural light and added strength along the walls.

Customer Success

“It was a priority to get the new building operating quickly so we could continue our programming. They were totally committed to doing whatever was necessary to support our project.”

Steve Henry | OKC Tennis Center

“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.”
