Installing a dome greenhouse is easy and can be completed in a weekend if you have sufficient help.
The owner can install the Arctic Greenhouse Domes relatively easy. We recommend that at least 2 people participate in the installation, though some tasks can be done alone. We tell customers to plan on your self-installation to take at least twice as long as our crew installation because of the learning curve involved. We recommend that you have someone with construction skills (such as experience working a drill, saw, tape, and hammer). Follow the color key materials and print layout for an easy assembly.
We can provide a Supervisor to work with the owner and owner-hired crew to install any of the Arctic Dome Greenhouses that are available. Supervisor labor rate is $500 per 8 hour day and/or Labor rate is 300 per 8 hour day. Installation usually takes 2-5 days depending on weather, Arctic Greenhouse Dome size, number and expertise of your crew. See table below for rates. The supervisor works as well. Separate travel, lodging and per diem costs for the supervisor and/or laborer also apply.
(Recommended for 40ft Domes)
We can provide an Installation Crew to assemble your Arctic Dome Greenhouse in 2-5 days, which is the easiest option for many owners. The cost varies depending on which Arctic Dome Greenhouse is purchased and Separate travel, lodging and per diem costs for the crew members also apply. Please see below.
Estimated Installation Costs For Arctic Dome Greenhouse Installing crew:
Size Estimated Cost for installation:
- 15 foot 1800.00
- 20 foot 2100.00
- 30 foot 3200.00
- 40 foot 4400.00
NRCS and Custom Domes must also meet criteria mentioned in following paragraph. Each Dome installation cost under this criteria will be figured at the time of estimate.
NOTE: These figures are only estimates, and may vary with actual installation costs. This does not include greenhouse kit delivery or crew travel. It is more economical for an outside contractor to do the leveling and excavation, so we do not include site preparation or excavation in these rates. If site preparation does not meet +- 1 and 10ft extra working radius. A trip charge equal to one day of supervisor, labor, travel and per diem will be added to final cost of installation. Any Dome set upon a “built up” base, we are not responsible for any compaction/settling of said base. Any extra work for not meeting criteria are at the sole responsibility of customer. Sites not clear, solid ground and level as specified and requires special equipment or extra labor is the full responsibility of customer. If customer fills in area with dirt, they must compact ground for using scaffold, ladders, etc safely. Example, If dome is 40 feet in diameter. We need 30 foot radius of +- 1 level compacted grade for working area. Total diameter will be 60 feet.) The bed design and installation is also not part of the kit or installation cost, but Arctic Dome Greenhouses can be contracted to do so for an additional fee.
