Costs of Monolithic Dome Buildings
The average cost per square foot for a conventional home is usually about $150 ($290,000 for a 2,000 square foot home). Would you be surprised to know that the average dome build is only $60 per square foot? Whether you’re building a storage facility, a business space or a home, in most cases, a monolithic dome is the way to go.
Having expert builders make for a quick and efficient build. Paying for a long and dragged out build is common in the construction industry. The longer the build, the higher the cost. At South Industries, our dome experts usually finish a build from start to finish within sixty days (depending on the difficulty and external variables), which keeps monolithic dome building costs lower. This efficiency helps get your family or business into your new space at a fraction of the cost compared to hiring a conventional contractor or construction company.
Savings from Dome Buildings
On top of saving money on the build and gaining style points, a dome is a solid investment for long-term savings. Dome homes and business facilities can save owners up to 90% on their utility bill due to the natural shape and surface area that come with a dome structure.
The surface area of a dome building naturally plays a large role on the monthly energy bill. Instead of heating and cooling every corner of a conventional building, families and businesses can cut corners (literally) by decreasing the surface area without sacrificing usable space. Domes are also much better at retaining temperature than normal homes, storage facilities and offices. This helps you save by not running the heating and A/C units all day long.
Limitless floor plans are one of the top reasons people choose a dome over other structures. The ceiling’s independence allows a wide variety of floor plans and the ability to remodel the floor plan according to future needs. This freedom of design is a major budget saver for businesses and families that require flexibility with their interior setup.
Domes are one of the strongest architectural structures ever made. With a monolithic dome you don’t have to worry about the following: roof repairs every decade, fires, wind damage and more. A dome can beat a conventional building in almost every head-to-head comparison in terms of long-term maintenance costs.
