TOUR: LEGACY BUILDING SOLUTIONS
Legacy Building Solutions has experience manufacturing, designing, selling and installing fabric buildings on rigid steel frames across the globe. Based on their experiences they created a patented attachment system for integrating fabric cladding with the steel frame. Today they specialize in highly custom, large and specialty fabric structures. Although their headquarters are here in Minnesota, their buildings can be found in most U.S. states and Canadian provinces, as well as countries around the world.
Legacy fabric buildings are clear span structures constructed using a rigid steel frame. Once the frame is erected in place, the fabric cover is connected to the frame using their proprietary process. Legacy uses ExxoTec PVC fabric. Each structure is engineered and manufactured on a solid web beam steel frame. Steel frames are available primed gray or red, painted any color, or hot dip galvanized for maximum corrosion resistance.
Legacy has staked their reputation on quality, safety and customer service. Their goal is constant improvement and constant innovation to their buildings and processes. They also strive to create long-term and rewarding relationships. Their in-house design, manufacturing and installation crews are held to the highest standards to better serve their customers. They also provide innovative structure and service solutions solving the needs of valued clients and partners. They accomplish this by empowering their customer-focused employees to act ethically, responsibly, and with ingenuity.
