    The Rundown

    The U.S. Steel facility has the highest roof peak we’ve ever constructed at 97 feet. The walls, too, are the tallest we’ve constructed at 74 feet. At 110 feet by 500 feet, the building itself is somewhat large, but it’s the height that gets the attention. The new maintenance building has been constructed in the footprint of the old maintenance building. Legacy customizes all of our customers’ structures, so fitting a structure into an established footprint is something we do best.

    Testimonials

    Legacy was the only company who could help us.

    Our salt is delivered by rail cars to a large pit next to the storage structure. A conveyor system hoists it from pit to building. Legacy was the only company we talked to that could supply trusses strong enough to support the conveyors.

    We were very impressed by their engineering team.

    By today's standards, the buildings we're designing are of world-class caliber in the U.S. and Canada. Legacy offered several features that put them at the top of the list. They are unique among fabric buildings in that they build on a rigid steel frame. Everything looked good, from the eave and ridge ventilation system to the method for installing fabric panels. Combined with material delivery times and the time to construct, Legacy seemed like the perfect choice for our application. "The whole design is very efficient for our operations. Flexibility is key, especially when the building is a 'first of its kind' for the industry. We had one design change after the whole plan was in place, to widen our trapeze in the structure that supports the conveyor, and Legacy was able to make that change without any problem. The conveyor system fits and operates just as it was designed. "Legacy knew our schedule and saved us over 30 days of downtime. They stood the frames for the entire fabric structure in a single day, and everything - conveyors, electrical, fabric - was completed within five weeks of them coming to the site. It was a Herculean effort on Legacy's part. It was fantastic. They have a very passionate team, from top to bottom. In all respects, from design to pricing to production, Legacy is one of the best building contractors I've ever worked with. I look forward to working with them again.

    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.
