Intro to Domes
Working with architects and general contractors to design new outdoor athletic facilities is an exciting venture and a significant investment in the future.
For high schools, colleges, communities and private investors, a dome makes sense in almost any climate. Plus, the cost of a dome is a fraction of traditional brick-and-mortar structures, and the construction timeline is shorter.
Yeadon will support your design team with information and ideas on how you can maximize your spaces for year-round play and revenue. We are experts at helping interpret building codes and providing the specifications and drawings that will put your team in a position to win.
Even if one isn’t in the first phase of your plan, deciding to prepare the land to accommodate an air dome gives you future flexibility with the space.
Even if you don’t put up a dome right away, the right time to prepare for a dome is during initial construction. Bringing in utilities and pouring the cement grade beam gives you a dome-ready site. Our design team will supply your architects and contractors all the information needed to prepare the site.
Large diverse groups like sports teams, recreational leagues, expo promoters and sportsmen make use of dome space.
Domes designed to be versatile, mixed-use facilities can capture the biggest audiences and deliver more revenue.
There are also users who know a dome is ideal space for them. Like drone flyers. By 2020, it’s estimated there will be 7 million U.S. drone owners. Drone hobbyists practice inside domes because there are no obstructions, visibility is good and a crash landing is better on turf than unforgiving concrete.
