    Fabric Buildings for Wastewater Treatment Plant Construction—It’s All About The Right Environment

    Legacy fabric buildings are designed for maximum efficiency, odor control, and durability. The translucent material creates a natural energy-saving environment by allowing in natural light. Customized fabric buildings have the capability to create negative air pressure for hazardous waste decontamination and volatile containment, which also controls odors and emissions. ExxoTec™ fabric provides enough diffused light for safe storage and daytime operations.

    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 Central MN.

    Install 04

    Now to the good stuff. We typically use our own Legacy crews for the install. They have a reputation for a strong work ethic, strict safety practices, and deep knowledge of how our structures work. They also are trained in our proprietary cladding attachment process.

    Case Study

    Fern Hollow Water Treatment Plant

    7,549 sq ft Municipal Water Treatment Facility | Moon Township, PA

    The Fern Hollow Water Treatment Plant cover was designed, manufactured, and installed by Legacy crews overtop the existing water treatment equipment. Reducing maintenance time and costs was a primary concern for the township, and the new building helped achieve that by being low maintenance itself, as well as reducing the maintenance needed for the equipment and tanks inside.

    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.

    Southeast County Landfill

    139,750 sq ft Biosolids Compost Cover

    Legacy created an open-air building that allowed them to increase the productivity of the facility. Our engineering made it possible to consolidate it in one large building rather than the three structures proposed in the early stages of the building process.

    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.

    Max Rhoads Wastewater Settling Tank Cover

    15, 232 sq ft Wastewater Settling Tank Cover

    After considering options for a building that met the corrosion-resistance criteria and could be erected over settling tanks already in place, RWRA chose Legacy Building Solutions as their basis of design.

    Testimonials

    The whole engineering phase with Legacy was excellent.

    They were very responsive to our ideas and turned things around very quickly. Even the installation was fast—the whole building was erected in about seven days. The fabric roof allows a lot of natural light into the building, which is a big advantage on the operations floor, since it reduces our need for artificial lighting inside. It provides significant sheltering from rain, wind and cold. Even though we didn't have it insulated, it's still noticeably more comfortable inside during the winter. The structure actually provides more of a shading and cooling effect. The Legacy building has performed at or above expectations in many ways. And on top of its functionality within our process, it offers environmentally friendly features in its own right. It's a great system for our application.

    The tripper works just as planned – which basically doesn’t ever happen.

    The building is working out better than we thought it would. The tripper is supported from the frame and works just as planned – which basically doesn’t ever happen.

    Working with Legacy was easy.

    This is definitely a more permanent building type. And working with Legacy was easy – there was good communication throughout the design and installation process.
