Engineered Fabric Structures
At Legacy Building Solutions, we custom engineer fabric structures based on the project’s specifications. Creating the ideal building to meet your requirements eliminates excess square footage, increases energy efficiency and results in faster return on your investment.
Rigid steel frame fabric structures are built to meet or exceed local building codes. Legacy buildings meet engineering standards set by the International Building Code (IBC) and National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
Rigid frame engineering is used in a majority of steel-framed buildings around the world. The frames accommodate dynamic loads (cranes, conveyors) and dead loads (HVAC, lighting, sprinkler systems). Wide steel portals can also support special column-bearing heights or sidewall columns bearing on a jack beam to create wider bays and large door openings.
Design and engineering also account for the pressure the fabric applies to the building. Purlins and flange braces provide the stability with or without the fabric’s help.
Our engineering team is licensed in multiple states and provinces, and we provide stamped drawings in any location in the U.S. and abroad. Our building engineers and consultants are among the most experienced in the fabric building industry.
