If you do not have the time or do not want to assemble the dome shell kit, we know of a working consultant that will supervise your laborers or your contractor’s laborers and assemble American Ingenuity's Dome Building Kit. The working consultant’s daily cost is $265 and travel expenses.  Using three to four good laborers and depending upon the size dome and type of hoisting mechanism, shell assembly (Kit with two entryways and four dormers) can take from 9 to 20 days. Once you decide on your floor plan, we can estimate the number of days needed for the shell assembly (cupola, entryways and dormers take longer to install than triangles).

You or your contractor hire conventional subcontractors to do the normal jobs like forming and pouring the slab, plumbing, electrical, framing, etc. We figure you should not pay someone to come in from out of state to do work that your local subs can perform.

A few years ago prior to the working consultant that supervises the shell assembly, some of our dome owners had to hire contractors or individuals that had never assembled one of our dome shell kits. As a result the contractor had to overcharge the dome owner because they did not know what problems they would run in to. Many times they would charge as much as the cost of the building kit for the labor cost to assemble the kit.

Sorry we do not give out the name of the assembly consultant. He is on a job site and cannot be disturbed.  If you are considering utilizing the Consultant, call our office at 321-639-8777.

A helpful web site is rsmeans.com It has construction manuals, construction estimating CD's, etc.  Another helpful cost estimating program is from EZHome Build.
