A Monolithic Dome is the ideal structure for any sport facility: school gymnasium, indoor football or hockey stadium, mega-arena, rodeo arena, skating rink, etc. Several factors make it ideal.

In size, the Monolithic Dome can comfortably accommodate thousands and provide all the amenities generally associated with prime sport facilities, or it can be designed with seating for just a few hundred.

Regardless of size, a Monolithic Dome has a perfectly open, spacious interior, uninterrupted by supporting columns. But its walls and ceiling have the structural strength and ability to support hanging boxes for media equipment and personnel, clubrooms, scoreboards, running tracks, offices, observation platforms, etc.

Compared to conventional structures, it’s easy and less expensive to maintain a comfortable temperature on the inside of a Monolithic Dome. Its construction materials and method, coupled with its seamless polyurethane foam insulation make it so.

Generally, a Monolithic Dome can be built for less money and in less time than a conventional building of the same size.

Commercial Feasibility Study

Image: Aggieland Dome — The 124′×40′ dome encompasses 12,000 square feet on the ground level and 2,400 square feet on the mezzanine level. The fitness area offers an oversized free weight area, quick circuit area, cardio machines with individual TVs on all 31 pieces, locker rooms with individual shower and dressing areas, and a sauna in the men and women’s locker rooms.  Building was completed in January 2004.

A Feasibility Study is a preliminary study for a project that compares the Monolithic Dome Process to other building systems. This preliminary analysis defines the design and intent of the project and provides an estimated budget and schedule, based on the best available information. Monolithic produces a Feasibility Study to assist a client before full design, management and/or construction services are engaged. (Continued…)
