    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.

    Your install team is first rate.

    I asked you to give us a very aggressive timeline and you delivered on that. Your team obviously consists of "can do" personnel and always worked to find a solution for every problem we addressed during the project. We asked for no subsurface disruption and your team delivered a well-engineered solution at a reasonable cost. Your install team is first rate, both with their work ethic and desire to deliver a superior product. The building that they installed is outstanding. We did our walk-through this morning and from our VP down, it was all compliments. I would personally recommend a Legacy Building to anyone. Thank you for everything.

    Amazing amount of light.

    You stand inside and have this amazing amount of light. It’s hard for me to imagine that anyone would want to have a metal roof over them.
