This Boathouse Pavilion is part of a 100-acre park on the Arkansas River in Tulsa, OK. The roof of the pavilion is comprised of 130 sail-like panels made with FRP which will cover an outdoor patio and restaurant. The panel’s surface area totals 7,400 ft2 (20,000 ft2 of actual material counting the inner and outer surface of the panels and all of the return flanges). They are supported by a grid of columns and the typical span is about 20′.
