Whitehorse General Hospital – Mental Health Unit

Our first healthcare project! Located in Whitehorse YT, the new Mental Health Unit at Whitehorse General Hospital is set to become the highest thermally performing healthcare facility in the Canadian Territories.

Designed by Northern Front Studio and Thinkspace Architecture, this cutting-edge facility features our fibreglass-framing system as well as Vision Control® insulated glass and blind units. This combination dramatically reduces maintenance requirements and condensation risk, improving the lifecycle of a building envelope contending with -55ºC (-67ºF) exterior temperature and above-average interior Relative Humidity (RH). This also pays dividends for the populations being treated, improving health outcomes for some of the most vulnerable members of the community. We’re excited to begin installation of the curtain wall in 2024. Building completion is expected for 2025.
