    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.

    The Legacy construction crew was very professional and courteous.

    Because of our soil issues, we simply couldn't afford to construct a more traditional building. The concrete costs made a more traditional building cost prohibitive. The lightweight design of our Legacy building allowed us to reach a compromise between soil conditions and cost. Regarding the design and construction phases of the building, I can say that the process went exceptionally well. When I made eleventh-hour changes to the job, Legacy handled them with ease. They finished the job well ahead of schedule, worked safely, and followed our stringent safety requirements to the letter.

    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.
