  • $\begingroup$ @Rubio - yes........ I keep trying and I keep getting it wrong... many apoloiges... $\endgroup$ – tom Apr 7 '18 at 23:06

I am confident the answer is.

LATTICE. The def being solid structure. The wordplay being that "Let Us" sounds like Lattice. This also fits with the hint as "cold coffee"=latte+ice which sounds like lattice.
