UBC Chan Gunn Pavilion


A UBC Building features ISO-Clip Thermal Isolation Clip

In 2015 pioneering Vancouver pain relief physician Dr. Chan Gunn donated $5 million to the University of British Columbia for construction of a new building devoted to exercise and sport medicine teaching, research and patient care.  Now open, the 13,480-square-foot building is the new home for UBC’s sport and exercise medicine centre – one of the first academic sports medicine units in the world, and the first in Canada.

Project Details



The team constructing the UBC Sports Medicine Centre required a cost effective method of securing the fiber cement panels to the building while providing for a thermal break.  The solution? ISO-Clip.
