The instrument is housed in a white oak case which is joined together by rabbeting and tongue-and-groove work, using no nails or screws. The Hauptwerk is at the front of the main case, with pipes of the 8' Prinzipal in the façade, while the Swell is behind and separated by a passage. Pipes of the Pedal are housed at the sides in the main case. The principals are 75% polished tin, and the flutes are a 13% hammered tin-lead alloy.

Barbara Owen was the consultant and Wolfgang Rübsam played the dedicatory concert on February 25, 1987.
