Custom Fabric Buildings

Engineered fabric shelters by Legacy Building Solutions have the design-build capabilities, rapid erection and custom designs needed for the mining, gas and oil industries.

Engineered fabric shelters by Legacy Building Solutions have the design-build capabilities, rapid erection and custom designs needed for the mining, gas and oil industries.

Legacy structures are constructed on a rigid steel frame with fabric cladding. The solid web beams are available hot-dip galvanized for corrosion resistance; primed or painted frames are available when corrosion is less of a concern.

Engineered fabric structures have inherent advantages for exploration, well development, drilling, production and site abandonment.

Relocate, reduce or expand fabric buildings

Tension fabric structures are designed as permanent structures but can be relocated, reduced or expanded as needed. Architectural cladding has no protrusions and can be rolled up and reshipped as required, much more cheaply than steel. Thanks to the quick construction and experienced installation crews, relocating fabric buildings is a hassle-free operation.

The offset peak and multi-level legs of this fabric frac sand storage building create ideal conveyor placement. Hanging the conveyor leaves plenty of clear span bulk storage space.
This custom fabric structure is the largest of its kind in the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin. It receives several rail loads of frac sand each month.
A mining truck shop in Chile. The fabric building is a monoslope structure added to an existing facility.
Design-built fabric structures are each designed to accommodate large equipment, including tipping trucks.
The translucent fabric structure allows the owners to take advantage of long hours of daylight. The conveyor offloads frac sand from unit trains carrying up to 10,000lb of material.

Fabric structures designed to meet project specifications

Each structure is designed and engineered to meet project specifications. Environmental loads, including wind, snow and seismic, are designed to meet or exceed site-specific local codes. Additional loads from conveyors, cranes, fire-suppression systems and similar hanging loads are also engineered into the building structure.

Fabric building applications in mining, oil and gas

Because there are no standard building sizes, there are no standard applications. Each design-built fabric structure is created to meet or exceed project specifications, including the length, width, clearance, door placement and configuration required.

Some potential applications for oil and gas production include:

  • Bulk storage for frac sand and other materials
  • Warehousing
  • Vehicle maintenance facilities
  • Winter hoarding
  • Recreation and meal tents

Fabric structures with multiple foundation options

Fabric structures are more lightweight than conventional buildings, resulting in more options for foundations. Precast panels or cast-in-place concrete are popular options, although smaller foundations, such as earth anchors or helicals, are also available.

Fabric buildings customized to meet your needs

Legacy is committed to bespoke structures that meet your project needs. Our unique engineering capability and rigid steel frame allow Legacy to add lean-tos, offset peaks, lightning-suppression systems, active or passive ventilation, conveyors, cranes and more.

Most fabric building companies don’t have the rigid frame or engineering capacity to custom design a custom structure to meet your current and future needs. Consult with Legacy first for maximum efficiency and functionality of your building.

Save Energy with a Fabric Structure

With the recent hot weather, keeping cool is the forefront of everyone's mind. Keep people and stored material cool in a fabric structure. All fabric buildings provide shade, lower thermal conductivity and ventilation. For more active cooling options, roof-mounted solar panels, energy-efficient design and even off-the-grid options save on energy costs while providing active climate control options.
