March 31, 2015 – Legacy Building Solutions now offers a line of fabric buildings that incorporate structural steel beams.

This engineering concept is designed to provide a high level of flexibility for a wide range of applications, including waste and recycling facilities, commodity storage, and commercial and industrial warehousing.

Legacy buildings feature a durable solid frame with solid structural steel beams that are offered with multiple coating options, including hot dip galvanizing, red oxide primer and powder coat paint.

The structural steel frame provides flexibility to customize buildings beyond the confines of standard sizes to the exact width, length and height required. The design allows for wide doors and the ability to add side doors. Structures can be modified to provide desired eave extensions and interior columns. They can also be engineered to handle additional loads for conveyors, sprinklers and commodity loads on the sidewalls.

Legacy buildings feature polyethylene fabric roofs. A wide variety of PVC fabrics are also available. The fabric allows natural light to permeate the structure, while insulation can be added to meet energy codes when required.


The design can be adjusted for stationary or portable applications. Sidewalls can be customized and built with any desired material — including steel, paneling or siding — and then lined with fabric to prevent corrosion to the interior. Legacy steel components and fabric covers are backed by a 15-year warranty.

Legacy offers assistance from concept to completion, including renderings, foundation design, installation and project management. To date, Legacy’s in-house, professional installation crews have constructed more than 35 million square feet of fabric buildings.
