Rapid Installation for Your Industrial Building
An Arizon Building System can be fully installed in as little as 5 weeks from approval of our engineered submittal when an accelerated timeline is required. A more typical timeline is 5 to 7 months to allow appropriate time for permitting, site construction work and other aspects outside of Arizon’s direct control of the project.
Tall Ceilings & No Columns
An Arizon Building System offers the most flexible interior space available. Period. The interiors of our domes feature no pesky structural columns that can get in the way of operations such as manufacturing or distribution.
The Arizon ceiling height is considerably taller than any other practical solution on the market, with most domes having a peak height between 40’ and 80’ depending on building dimensions and customer needs.
If your indoor facility will be conditioned with heating and/or cooling, the Arizon Building Systems air handling system design will discharge conditioned air into the space at ground level where your employees work versus at ceiling level like most packaged systems. This results in considerably less wasted energy as conditioned air will not need to be forced down 30+ feet to ground level where your employees work.
This design also ensures that all parts of the floor will be evenly conditioned to within 1-2 degrees Fahrenheit, so one end or corner will not be considerably warmer or cooler than other parts of the floor.
Tax and Depreciation Advantages
Arizon domes are often classified as equipment versus real property and is therefore taxed in the same manner an equipment purchase would be. In jurisdictions without personal property tax (or minimal personal property tax) this often means that the purchaser would not be tax liable for an air-supported dome and would only have to pay for property tax (not the improvement upon the property). Sales tax is still generally required.
Similarly, air-supported domes will depreciate over a much faster (typically 7 year) schedule versus a more standard depreciation model of 39 years for conventional construction.
Please note that each jurisdiction is different and these advantages are discussed as a general example only. Please consult with a tax or financial professional for more exact details.
CUSTOM MANUFACTURED AIR HANDLING EQUIPMENT FOR INDUSTRIAL BUILDING SOLUTIONS
Arizon’s skylight uses a translucent panel section to bring in natural light during daytime hours that will improve the interior aesthetic of the building and reduce costs associated with operating all or some of the interior lighting.
The skylight can be altered to be larger or smaller depending on needs and local climates and can even be re-oriented to the side or as a ‘Halo’ around the building for higher temperature locations.
Historically many air-supported domes have featured a white exterior. While that is still an option, Arizon offers a much more diverse array of color and pattern options. Gray is a popular choice as it can blend into other built environments with concrete structures. Forest green is popular when in a wooded location, and sandstone can hide dust build-up in more arid environments.
Arizon also can incorporate large corporate logos onto the exterior of the dome which can be useful for brand awareness for locations along busy corridors or on the top of structures on a landing path.
Each Arizon Building System is a fully-custom solution and specific feature inclusions will often dictate final pricing, however Arizon’s domes are generally completed for approximately 1/3 of the cost of a metal building of the same size. This factors the completed, installed cost by the time our customers factor the building components themselves, HVAC, installation, foundations and more.
