give support tech permissions to join a pc to domain, etc

Last Modified: 2013-11-05
We are hiring a new support tech and I want to off load some of the duties of setting up the PC and then joining to the domain or allowing him to give the person who's pc it will be power user or admin permissions to the box both of which will pop up the box wanting someone with domain permissions to allow this.  Is there a way, without making him a domain admin, to allow him to be able to join a pc to the domain after he is done installing windows 7 or to elevate the PC owners user account to a power user or local admin?
I'm afraid to make him a domain admin so soon because this opens up access to AD and everything.
