The Rundown

Having a beautiful field house that fit into a traditional university setting was important to the college. It also had to fit into a rather limited footprint. Legacy used inverted legs on the solid steel frame to make it fit and to make it look great. It also attached to a traditional brick and mortar building seamlessly. Both engineers and designers got an A for this project.

Customer Success

“No one was really expecting your guys to install it as fast as they did. Once we got to that point where it was time to put the steel up and putting the fabric up… it was a breath of fresh air.”

–  Adam McLeod | Associate AD, Stony Brook University
