    The Rundown

    To stay in line with air quality regulations in their area, a recycling company needed to enclose their current concrete containment bins. They partnered with Legacy to design, manufacture and install a structure that is able to house both storage and processing areas and is equipped with a building-supported conveyor and chemical fire suppression system.

    Testimonials

    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.

    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.

    Protecting this equipment helps it run more efficiently.

    We didn’t have any experience with fabric buildings, but they were a cost-effective solution for our needs. Protecting this equipment helps it run more efficiently. So far the building is doing the job of providing protection for the new equipment.
