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.

Legacy met our challenges.
Merging old materials with new materials—and then using unconventional construction—were among the challenges.
Legacy was very easy to work with.
The old buildings used tubular steel, and no matter what you do, the salt gets inside the tubes and corrodes them. They came out here with their crew, rented all their equipment, and erected the buildings in three weeks flat – a week ahead of schedule. It's a stand-up company.
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.
