    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.

    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.

    Great service over many years.

    The facility looks great and it is very photogenic, which is important since we get a lot of media coverage.

    Legacy was the only one that could do a two-stepped building.

    Legacy was the only one that could do a two-stepped building, so we could have a high part in front …and then have it stepped down, so we stay out of the clearance zone.
