Friendship Equestrian Recover


    The Rundown

    Friendship Equestrian Center (FEC), a boarding and training facility in upstate New York, has an 80 ft x 200 ft fabric riding arena used for year-round training, riding and dressage practice, originally installed in 2004. After a short time using the original building, the staff and customers at FEC noticed mildew growth along the walls and ceiling of the arena. As the mildew problem worsened over time and some microtears in the building started affecting the climate inside, staff knew it was time to replace the cover on the building.

    The new building will protect the salt supply.

    It will be protected from being compromised by wind and precipitation. Once the general contractor completed the footings and floors, Legacy installed the fabric building very quickly, in about two weeks. It was a very positive process with professional communication between Legacy and Dewberry throughout the project.

    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.

    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.
