Stony Brook University College Athletics Facility


    The Rundown

    Having a beautiful field house that fit into a traditional university setting was important to the college. It also had to fit into a rather limited footprint. Legacy used inverted legs on the solid steel frame to make it fit and to make it look great. It also attached to a traditional brick and mortar building seamlessly. Both engineers and designers got an 'A' for this project.

    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.

    It seemed to be the perfect solution.

    The building needed to be as salt resistant as possible. Legacy had a solid steel frame as opposed to tubular steel – it seemed to be the perfect solution.
