STS Steel fabricated and trial-assembled the 53-foot diameter oculus at their shop prior to delivery to ensure all parts could be reassembled at the site without problems. To create the desired architectural shapes and required strength, many of the structural steel façade components are constructed of welded plates filled with reinforcing steel and concrete.
