The Greta and Robert H.N. Ho Centre of Psychiatry and Education (HOpe Centre) is a treatment facility located on the campus of the Lions Gate Hospital in North Vancouver, B.C. With six-floors, including two underground, the HOpe Centre spans approximately 158,000 square feet.

Build to LEED Gold Certification with an energy-efficient building envelope, The HOpe Centre includes high performance glazing, heat recovery chiller, active chilled beam system, and displacement ventilation.

With an exterior façade of concrete, the eyebrows and lintels connected with Schӧck Isokorb® were recommended by the design team. Structural Engineer, Glotman Simpson lead the initiative to incorporate Isokorb® because of the direct contact of the exterior concrete with the interior slabs, in addition to their design goals for interior comfort and energy performance.
