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.

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 whole engineering phase with Legacy was excellent.
They were very responsive to our ideas and turned things around very quickly. Even the installation was fast—the whole building was erected in about seven days. The fabric roof allows a lot of natural light into the building, which is a big advantage on the operations floor, since it reduces our need for artificial lighting inside. It provides significant sheltering from rain, wind and cold. Even though we didn't have it insulated, it's still noticeably more comfortable inside during the winter. The structure actually provides more of a shading and cooling effect. The Legacy building has performed at or above expectations in many ways. And on top of its functionality within our process, it offers environmentally friendly features in its own right. It's a great system for our application.
Working with Legacy was great.
Cost was the initial factor for selecting Legacy, but once we saw the engineering that goes into their design, we understood that could make it easy for us to expand the building in later phases. We also liked its compatibility with conventional construction. There are a lot of possibilities we could explore in the future. The guys who constructed the building worked under some really, really tough conditions, but they wrapped it up on the afternoon of Christmas Eve, and the building opened Christmas morning. Everyone was very responsive, and it was a pleasure to work with them. Once visitors got into the building and we experienced the interior environment with the heat flow and the insulation, we were very satisfied.
