During the installation of the dome, a temporary infrastructure of 2 x 4’s and cinderblock supported the dome against 40 mile-per-hour winds and integrity issues caused by the absence of twenty un-recovered struts. Despite these issues, the dome eventually stood independent of these additional supports.
