steel boxes

so, my 2 cents, could they be solid and adding weight to help stabilize the rafters?

Doubtful. The rafters have plenty of room within their structure to have all the damping material or fixtures required. The amount of weight that could be added to a box of that size is inconsequential with regard to the size and weight of the structure.

It is more logical they are lighting boxes. I assume any electrical conduit required was already installed before the rafters were welded up.

I'm going to go with you on lighting boxes, mostly because I can't think of anything else they might be. But, threading wires though the purloins would be a pretty simple matter.

Seven left on North side. Look at the pieces on the delivery trucks. Once they join the right-side one to its other half, it's got to be close to half the length of the entire site!!

And here it is in place:

What will the finished west entrance look like? In some of the renderings it has a beak and others no. Beak or no beak?
