Foundations & Stem-Wall Construction

First things first

Dome Technology has extensive experience determining the most economical foundation system.

A taller footprint

Architectural domes are typically built on a vertically cast-in-place stem wall that results in more head room within the dome.

Elevated post-tensioned ring beam

Often at the top of the stem wall on a commercial dome project is a post-tensioned ring beam the same width as the wall, an element that becomes an important part of the dome’s system. This results in a low-profile, more aesthetically pleasing project.
