Checklist : construction of a MegaDome®building

 

    Construction of a MegaDome® structure can begin once the preparation stage is complete. This checklist explains how a fabric building is constructed.

    Construction: average production time from start to finish

    Project production lead times depend on many factors such as the choice of series, the size, the different options, galvanization and the time of year. Consult our article on preparing for construction to make choices tailored to your needs.

    We’ve put together a schedule to help you plan the construction of your building. It is based on the average production time of a MegaDome® building under ideal conditions.

    EZ Series :

    Evaluation of project : 1 to 2 weeks / Delivery : 3 to 5 weeks after ordering / Construction : 1 to 3 weeks

    DB Series :

    Evaluation of project : 1 to 2 weeks / Delivery : 4 to 6 weeks after ordering / Construction : 2 to 6 weeks

    DB Series – 100 series profile

    Evaluation of project : 1 to 2 weeks / Delivery : 8 to 12 weeks after ordering / Construction : 8 to 10 weeks

    AR Series

    Evaluation of project : 1 to 2 weeks / Delivery : 8 to 12 weeks after ordering / Construction : 12 to 16 weeks

    Ideal construction period

    Canada, nord and east United States  : From April to November

    Construction between December and March is possible but requires more logistics, in addition to being more complex and expensive. The construction rate is generally 15 percent higher during this period.

    South and west United States : All year round

    The different steps of construction

    Preparing the ground

    The installation of your fabric building can start once the ground preparation work is complete.
    We remain in constant communication with you during this period to ensure the work is progressing as it should be, and we can change the date of installation as needed.

    Foundations

    The MegaDome® team provides the technical documentation you need for the foundations. The foundations construction company will determine the best time to carry out the work. You can choose to work with the construction company of your choice or let our team take care of it.

    Installation team

    The accredited MegaDome® installation team or site supervisor (depending on your choice at the preparation stage) arrives at the site with all the necessary equipment.

    Installation

    The installation starts with the assembly of arches on the ground. The arches are erected. The braces are installed. The PowerShield® membrane is attached to the structure. The selected options are installed. Doors and garage doors are installed.
