Legacy was the first to apply fabric to a rigid steel frame allowing for expanded design capabilities. Our patented fabric attachment system elevated the industry in safety, quality and customer satisfaction.
Legacy buildings are custom engineered, each designed using complex and proven software and verified with manual quality checks. All buildings meet or exceed CSA S16 and CSA S136 standards and are stamped by a licensed engineer.
Legacy manages every step of the process, including pre- and post-construction, design, engineering and installation. Through open communication and a true partnership, our experienced team will add value to any construction project.
Legacy fabric structures have lower life cycle costs than traditional structures. Fast-track construction saves time and money up front. Natural light inside the building saves on ongoing energy costs.
Jobsite and building safety are of paramount importance. Legacy’s construction specialists adhere to industry best practices and applicable occupational health and safety regulations and codes.
Looking for design inspiration? Peruse our portfolio of completed projects that range from simple free span shelters to complex structures designed for highly specialized applications.
Streamlined design and fast-track construction reduce the risk of costly change orders due to intense design and accommodate last-minute owner-appointed change orders as needed.
Legacy Building Solutions® has achieved CSA A660-10 and ISO 9001:2008 certification. Legacy’s commitment to quality and continuous improvement includes partnering with our customers and vendors to exceed expectations.
Canada’s Custom Tension Fabric Building Leader
Legacy Building Solutions designs, manufactures, engineers and installs custom fabric structures. We were the first to apply fabric to a rigid steel frame allowing for expanded design capabilities. Our patented fabric attachment system elevated the industry in safety, quality and customer satisfaction.
Legacy offers fast-track construction, concept to post-construction project management and service. Certified by ISO 9001:2008 and CSA 660, our commitment to quality and our customers is evident as you work with our experienced team.
Legacy’s fabric structures on a solid steel frame are less susceptible to corrosion than fabric structures using open-web truss systems. With solid steel frames, there are no hollow tubes where corrosion can begin undetected – by the time you can notice corrosion that began inside a hollow tube member, it’s too late to repair the damage. The best way to prevent corrosion to the building frame is by hot dip galvanizing the frame and all steel members. Hot dip galvanizing (HDG) permanently bonds an even layer of zinc to the steel to protect the steel from the elements and prevent corrosion.
Legacy’s design-build team works with the customer to understand and solve your problems. We are with you every step of the way to understand how you do business and create the most efficient fabric structure for your needs. Full construction methodology simplifies the process by providing one point of contact and a faster construction schedule.
Rigid frame engineering allows us to create buildings exactly to project specs, including size, shape and optional features. Each engineered building is a high-quality, rust-resistant structure designed for decades of worry-free use. Legacy buildings regularly outperform not only hollow tube structures but also steel or wood buildings.
Solid frame buildings use the same proven design principles as traditional construction. Our unique attachment system relies on individual fabric panels each attached to the frame, as opposed to many competitors who attach one large piece of fabric only at the ends and bottom of the building. These monocovers are vulnerable to tearing or detaching completely, especially during extreme weather.
Each building is engineered to meet or exceed local codes and regulations for snow, wind and seismic load, as well as hanging loads applied by cranes, conveyors and other accessories.
A proven benefit of fabric structures is their ability to use natural light inside the structure, saving on the costs and maintenance of artificial lighting systems. Uninsulated fabric structures have up to 12% translucency, providing plenty of illumination for daytime work. There are no dark corners, and the interior atmosphere is more pleasant and natural.
Fabric is also a non-conductive building material, better holding the inside temperature rather than magnifying the outside conditions. Inside a fabric structure feels warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, even before adding insulation and heating and air conditioning systems.
Keeping people and assets protected from the elements is an important function of any building. Water management systems include canopies, gutters, overhangs, downspouts and our exclusive icebreakers that are designed to break up large chunks of ice and snow before they slide off the roof and strike the ground.
Ventilation options including mesh soffits, roof exhaust vents and endwall panels allow fresh air to flow into the building while keeping other elements and pests out.
