The Boathouse Pavilion is an iconic structure on the Arkansas River in Tulsa, OK. The roof of this pavilion consists of 130 sail-like panels made with FRP which are covering the outdoor patio and restaurant area to make it comfortable for guests who visit the park during any season! 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′.
Shop drawings, engineering, CNC machine EPS foam molds, fabricate FRP ‘sails’, trial assembly, deliver to the job site, on-site finishing.
