The Ruth Lilly Visitors Pavilion is constructed of ipe wood from Brazil, charred cedar wood from Indiana, steel, acrylic and glass. The roof is constructed of large steel beams as the load-bearing element which spans from the interior to the exterior. Isokorb® Type KST (now Type S), structural thermal break elements are installed in the layer of insulation between the two end plates of the steel beams.

The steel construction company produced the steel members and front plates with complete positions and dimensions as specified. The modular concept of Isokorb®, allowed up to five thermal breaks modules per steel beam. The structural engineer was able to dimension the required types, and our design department created CAD drawings with US standards and US profiles.
