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.
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.
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.
