    The Rundown

    The mine in Chile is a vast sprawling copper mine, and we are installing a building to store copper concentrate in port before it is moved to ships. The scale of this building is impressive, and the conveyor system supported by our roof frame is the heaviest we have ever worked with. The corrosion issue is that copper concentrate reacts chemically with galvanizing, so that was not even an option. Our Epoxxishield perfectly met their specs and requirements.

    Legacy pricing is very compatible to your competitors.

    We needed something that would withstand the corrosive environment better than our current building. What first drew us to Legacy was the concept of the rigid steel frame with fabric. We feel the rigid frame will give us many more years of service than the open web structures. Legacy's attention to detail, answering of endless questions that we had and prompt response to those questions also played a role in our decision to go with Legacy. And because so many details were ironed out in the beginning we built a very good building with very few modifications to the scope during the building process. We felt you could deliver on what you were proposing. Another plus for going with Legacy was the fact you had crews who were MSHA trained and you already had an MSHA Contractor ID. Your crew worked efficiently and safely. Once we were assured the liner cavity could be vented properly, the liner option seems to be a great add on for our environment. It is very obvious this will help in reduction of dust resting on the trusses. We liked the fact this building could be built with no cables. Instead, we used hot dipped galvanized steel rods. We are very proud to have partnered with Legacy to construct our Salt Containment Structure. We feel we now have a long term solution to our salt storage needs, a building that will be around for a long time to come.

    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.

    It's kind of like being outside all the time but still having shade.

    I love the amount of sunlight that you still get through the roof. It stays pretty warm in the winter and cooler in the summer. It͛s very quiet inside. When you get rain or hail or wind, there's no banging or clanging, no sharp or rough sounds. The acoustics are good. It's fresh and dry and clean. You don't ever have condensation dripping off the roof. It's a controlled environment, yet you still get the benefit of the daylight coming in.
