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.

    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.

    Legacy has superior installation value.

    Having designed the mechanical and electrical systems, as well as structural foundations for these types of buildings, we find that a Legacy fabric structure has superior insulation value compared to a pre-engineered metal structure with the same ‘R’ value of insulation.

    It was a good experience working with Legacy.

    Our transportation system requires the diesel buses to be stored in a facility to keep them warm and protected from the elements. Legacy's customized fabric structure design was able to fit our purposes. Their in-house installation crew put up the building very quickly. They're easy to work with and willing to help, and the communication with the city and responsiveness throughout the project was very good.
