The need to plan ahead is continuous, even in the middle of a crisis. In fact, a crisis quickly reveals how well we have planned. If you are in a planning period right now and thinking about your infrastructure, consider Legacy Building Solutions for your next building.
We are a strong leader in our industry. Here is why we say that.
Our structures are solid steel I-beams. Solid steel gives us a lot of advantages:
- Proven engineering
- Tough enough to stand up to wind, snow and seismic zones
- Meeting or exceeding local building codes
- Spans up to 300ft wide without support columns
- Able to support cranes, hoists and mechanical systems from the roof beams
We continuously innovate. The solid steel rigid I-beam frames were one of our early changes. Another early innovation, exclusive to Legacy, is our patented fabric tensioning system. By properly tensioning the fabric and tensioning it in the correct order, we free our customers from having to retention the fabric years later. That happens with a lot of other fabric buildings.
We then switched from PE fabric to a 28-oz PVC fabric. The added strength and durability of this fabric allowed us to give our customers a 25-year warranty. How tough is it? Our founder, Ben Fox, decided to test it out by driving a skid loader on it.
Finally, our buildings face a lot of applications where corrosion is a threat – salt sheds, mining concentrate storage, fertiliser storage and more. This past year, we developed a system to apply epoxy coatings to our steel to protect our customer’s steel for the long run. We call it Epoxxishield and it is the state of the art corrosion protection. Many of the military jobs we have done are near coastal areas where corrosion is a significant factor, so our epoxy coatings are a benefit for the long-term durability of those structures.
For military applications, the strength of our buildings and the leadership of our innovations allow us to offer:
- Aircraft hangars
- Storage buildings
- Billeting and mess halls
- Maintenance shops
- Fitness facilities
- Overhead sunshades
On the contracting side, it is important to remember that our buildings can be purchased as a semi-permanent structure, using the DLA-TLS Tents Contract – even though it is designed as a permanent structure with a 25-year warranty on fabric.
We usually use our own crews because they are second to none. Our construction crews have a worldwide reach.
Join us for a military-specific webinar at the end of June.
