Facility Upgrades: Staying on top of Trends

You don’t hear too many folks bragging about their flip phones. Most people upgrade to a smart phone at some point.

Like any building, a dome benefits from periodic upgrades. Forward-thinking dome owners budget and plan for them. Besides replacing the fabric, there are innovations in design, mechanical systems, lighting and automation. Some upgrades can even improve energy efficiency and save money on utilities.
