Fabric Buildings for Aviation—It’s All About The Ground Support
Supporting the aviation industry with hangars, cargo storage and maintenance facilities has created some great opportunities for Legacy. The industry is constantly innovating, and our engineers love the challenge of precisely meeting customers’ needs with fully customized structures. Our work in aviation also complements the projects we do for the military sector.
We offer very strong structures that will stand up to wind, weather and seismic conditions. Our clearspan engineering can give you very wide structures (more than 300 feet) without central supports that obstruct movement.
Whether you have a complete building spec or just an idea in mind, our team will lead you through the design process with expertise and efficiency.
Our in-house engineering team leads the charge on creative solutions that benefit all project stakeholders—namely you.
Legacy is an end-to-end manufacturer, meaning your project will be built right on site in our 87,000 sq ft facility in St. Cloud, MN.
Now to the good stuff. Your installation benefits from our safe, effective process in one of two ways—your Legacy rep onsite with local crews or full install services.

Big doors, natural light and plenty of clearspan space for equipment are the highlights of this aero storage facility. Our design features a completely removable door for oversized vehicles.View Case Study
Ontario Airport (ONT) Cargo Facilities
126,320 sq ft Cargo Logistics Facilities | Ontario, CA
As consumers continue to increase their demand for next-day packages, the square footage necessary for sorting increases as well. Ontario International Airport in California is the West Coast air and truck hub for UPS Airlines and is a major distribution point for FedEx Express. The Airport Authority found themselves requiring more space, resulting in a re-organization of the airport and the construction of two cargo buildings.View Case Study

Rota Naval Base
Two 10,000 sq ft Helicopter Repair Hangars
The Naval Air Base in Rota, Spain partnered with Legacy for two 10,000 sq ft aviation hangarsView Case Study
Legacy was one of the only companies that could construct to that height.
We needed a structure this big to be able to do maintenance inside, and we needed something we could erect quickly and meet all our requirements. Legacy was one of the only companies that could construct to that height.
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.
Legacy was the only one that could do a two-stepped building.
Legacy was the only one that could do a two-stepped building, so we could have a high part in front …and then have it stepped down, so we stay out of the clearance zone.
