New Data Storage Dome Under Construction in Florida

Because of their disaster-resistant qualities, Monolithic Domes are ideal for storing critical data and other essential records that must be protected in case of a tornado or hurricane. That’s why American Business Continuity Domes (ABC Domes) has dedicated its business to building disaster-resistant Monolithic Dome data storage facilities.

A new Smart Dome Vault under construction in Lakeland, Florida for Certified Records Management (CRM) is expected to be the prototype for future development of disaster-resistant domes throughout the county. According to an ABC Domes press release, the new Smart Dome vault will be the safest and most secure vault facility available in the state of Florida.

Scheduled for completion in March 2012, the new dome will be 60 feet tall and comprise 12,000 square feet of space, including a floor-to-ceiling metal racking system. It is engineered to withstand winds of more than 300 miles per hour, making it capable of surviving a Category 5 tornado as well as hurricanes.

ABC Domes is a division of Miami-based contractor Golden Sands General Contractors, which has specialized in building bank branches, vaults and ATM outlets since 1988. After the 2004 and 2005 seasons battered Florida with six hurricanes, the company expanded and Golden Sands created ABC Domes as a separate operating unit specializing in disaster recovery storage and management.
