    The set up was ideal.

    With this Legacy design, we were able to save money and space by integrating a wash bay into the storage structure. The setup we use is also ideal for eliminating environmental concerns, since all the salt-laden water is contained instead of running off.

    They met all our safety requirements and did an excellent job.

    Legacy’s crew was extremely professional. They met all our safety requirements and did an excellent job. They even provided an extensive final completion checklist with pictures of each item. That was very impressive, and it really demonstrated the level of workmanship they expected of themselves.

    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.
