    Fabric Buildings for Oil, Gas and Energy—It’s All About Flow

    Legacy’s custom-designed fabric structures can be an important part of your oil, gas and energy operations. From open-air machinery storage to insulated buildings for crews or offices, our buildings have the kind of range you need. The thermal properties of fabric siding keep the interior cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. It’s also virtually maintenance-free. Legacy can expedite design, fabrication and installation because we do it all in-house. Let us fit one of our structures into your timeline.

    Our Process

    Design 01

    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.

    Engineer 02

    Our in-house engineering team leads the charge on creative solutions that benefit all project stakeholders—namely you.

    Manufacture 03

    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.

    Install 04

    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.

    Case Study

    Biomethane Production Office & Processing Building

    19,200 sq ft Biomethane Waste-to-Energy Production Building

    The Biomethane Production Facility has a tall peak to allow tipping trucks inside, and a tightly sealed building envelope to contain odors. Clearspan floor space leaves plenty of room to store food waste for use.

    AGC Automotive

    16,482 sq ft Automotive Storage Structure | Elizabethtown, KY

    AGC Automotive needed to store large tooling and equipment at their Elizabethtown, Kentucky, facility. After learning about the capabilities of fabric buildings on a rigid steel frame, they installed one building 160 feet wide by 100.5 feet long. The natural light inside the building also reduced the number of light fixtures installed to the minimum required to meet safety regulations.

    Basin Electric Power Cooperative Bottom Ash Dewatering Facility

    52,800 sq ft Coal-Fired Energy Plant Processing Remediation Building | Stanton, ND

    Constructed over the top of an existing waste water facility, the structure protects equipment that is dewatering ash from a power plant. Ventilation was key for this operation, and the system installed did six interior air replacements per hour.

    BBE Hydro Vehicle Maintenance and Warehouse Buildings

    30,800 sq ft Vehicle Maintenance and Warehouse Buildings | Thompson, MB

    Vehicle maintenance for a hydro electric plant in Manitoba needs to be two things: big and warm. We delivered both. This structure also has a twin next door which serves as a warehouse.

    Montezuma Manufacturing Warehouse

    9,600 sq ft Automotive Component Manufacturing Warehouse | Montezuma, IA

    This warehouse for automotive manufacturing needed straight walls and a tall peak for the racks of components. Water control was a key factor, so a gutter system to keep water far from the foundation.

    We had a great working relationship with Legacy

    A lot of the temporary structures in the region are fabric structures, so we mainly looked at those types of buildings. Due to the overall project timeline, the buildings had to be constructed in the dead of winter. We had a great working relationship with Legacy throughout the entire process. They supply a very high quality fabric structure, and we're certainly pleased with what we've seen from the buildings thus far.

    John Lehman BBE Hydro Constructors

    We were very impressed by their engineering team.

    By today's standards, the buildings we're designing are of world-class caliber in the U.S. and Canada. Legacy offered several features that put them at the top of the list. They are unique among fabric buildings in that they build on a rigid steel frame. Everything looked good, from the eave and ridge ventilation system to the method for installing fabric panels. Combined with material delivery times and the time to construct, Legacy seemed like the perfect choice for our application. "The whole design is very efficient for our operations. Flexibility is key, especially when the building is a 'first of its kind' for the industry. We had one design change after the whole plan was in place, to widen our trapeze in the structure that supports the conveyor, and Legacy was able to make that change without any problem. The conveyor system fits and operates just as it was designed. "Legacy knew our schedule and saved us over 30 days of downtime. They stood the frames for the entire fabric structure in a single day, and everything - conveyors, electrical, fabric - was completed within five weeks of them coming to the site. It was a Herculean effort on Legacy's part. It was fantastic. They have a very passionate team, from top to bottom. In all respects, from design to pricing to production, Legacy is one of the best building contractors I've ever worked with. I look forward to working with them again.

    It was a seamless process.

    The crew was so professional, polite, on time and hardworking. It was amazing to see how much they got done. There were weather delays and they still finished early. It was a seamless process, and a pleasure to work with this group.
