(30ft Domes, 20ft Domes 15ft Domes)
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.
(Supervisor +1 Crew Member Recommended for 30ft Growing Dome)
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.

Separate travel, lodging and per diem costs for the supervisor and/or laborer also apply.

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 or other trades delaying our work a minimum of 1200.00 will be charged daily for delay. Normal specifications in concrete trade for footers will be expected. KingDome Inc will give dimensions, width/depths for footer. In the event job is divided between KingDome Inc and other contractors. If other contractors delay our work and job is based on daily rate of time and material. Immediate payment of delay will be required. Plus perdiem and lodging. If delay prohibits work and we must leave. Travel wage time, lodging, fuel and perdiem will be paid before travel. Delay, perdiem, lodging will be paid the day of delay. Any rescheduling will need to pay agreed install price again plus paid daily wages for travel, perdiem, and lodging in advance.
(Example) If dome is 40 feet in diameter. We need 30 foot radius of +- 1 for working area. Total diameter will be 60 feet.) Any travel days will be charged according to daily rate, lodging and per diem charges. Labor rates are paid half upon arrival and half upon completion or at the end of assisted time. If assisted installs are contracted. It is the homeowners responsibility to have agreed number of workers and equipment. Plus remain and work throughout the day. This is an assisted install not a complete install.

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.
