From an engineering standpoint, our standard dome designs are meant to be assembled in the place where they will be located. Why? When a dome is assembled on the ground and hoisted into place without additional structural bracing the integrity of the originally engineered dome may be compromised, and/or distorted.
However, Radius Track understands that there are circumstances that make ground assembly, and the hoisting of a dome into place, a better choice in the field. When this is the case, we’ll address the issue with the structural engineering firm to make sure that this is a viable solution for your dome application and that the signed and sealed calculation documents allow for this installation tactic.
