History & Services:
The Monolithic story begins with David B. South and his interest in dome building. That interest started when David was still in high school and never waned. In fact, it intensified.
By 1975, David and his two brothers, Barry and Randy, had successfully built their first Monolithic Dome – a potato storage facility in Shelley, Idaho, 105’ in diameter and 35’ high.
That project resulted in a patent for the process and launched an innovative construction system for Monolithic Dome homes, schools, churches, sport and commercial facilities.
Beginning in the 1970s, hundreds of Monolithic Domes have been constructed throughout the United States and in Canada and Mexico. Hundreds more are in use in various areas of Europe, South America, Asia, Africa and Australia.
Today, Monolithic is a family of companies sharing a mutual goal: to improve the lives of people worldwide through the introduction and construction of Monolithic Domes, for personal and public use, that are earth-friendly and superior in strength, energy-efficiency and cost control.
Headed by President David B. South, co-inventor and patent holder of the Monolithic Dome and the Crenosphere, Monolithic Constructors, Inc. functions as the parent company of this family. As such, Monolithic Constructors, Inc. designs Monolithic Domes and Crenospheres and, in conjunction with South Industries, Inc. of Menan, Idaho, constructs these structures for individuals, organizations and corporations.
The Monolithic Dome Institute promotes and educates. This branch of our family counsels clients as well as industry professionals; writes, edits and maintains the information on our websites; produces books, brochures and videos; coordinates special events such as dome building Workshops and trade shows; conducts research and development.
Monolithic Construction Management specializes in the overseeing and management of construction projects with this ever-present, main objective in mind: to assure that the project meets our client’s expectations, needs and budget.
Monolithic Equipment makes and markets various equipment and machinery especially useful in Monolithic Dome construction, such as pumps, mixers, scaffolds, etc.
Monolithic Airforms designs, manufactures and markets Monolithic Dome Airforms, Crenosphere Airforms and specialty fabric structures such as grain covers, condensate ceilings, methane tank liners, water tank diaphragms and tension tarps.
