Project Highlights


A Bank in Virginia

The newly constructed TowneBank – Ghent branch in Norfolk, Virginia features Landmark175™ Series steel windows and a 5000 Series™ custom-formed swing door, all with Hope’s award-winning Thermal Evolution™ technology.

Environmental responsibility and energy efficiency were just a couple of the reasons that the bank chose Hope’s for its newest “hipster-friendly” branch which offers complimentary Starbucks coffee, a lounge with electronics charging stations, multimedia community bulletin boards, and an outdoor doggie water fountain. Hope’s thermally-enhanced, solid steel windows also reinforce the bank’s more traditional image of strength, security, and longevity with a look that fits right in with the historic district.

Hope's Operations During COVID-19

Like all businesses and organizations throughout the United States, Hope’s has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic. As you would expect, our first priority is the health and safety of our employees, representatives, distributors, and customers who all make it possible for us to consistently provide the highest level of products and services.

In light of President Trump’s “15 Days to Slow the Spread” guidelines we implemented procedures and protocols to do our part including social distancing, sanitizing, and stepping down occupancy of our campus buildings.

On Friday March 20, New York’s Gov. Cuomo issued Executive Order 202.8 requiring all non-essential businesses to reduce the number of on-site employees by 100% effective March 22, 2020. Therefore, in compliance, we have temporarily suspended manufacturing operations.

Hope’s has submitted an official request to New York State to be designated an “essential business,” which when granted would permit Hope’s to continue manufacturing and shipping product. We expect to receive a positive response within the next two days.

In the meantime, Hope’s administrative, sales, project management, and engineering personnel are working remotely from home and continue to be available to communicate with our valued customers. We are continuing to estimate, submit bids, and produce shop drawings for contract work.

To access employee contact information, please refer to our Meet Our Team page.

Hope’s will remain diligent and highly responsive to all our customers and will keep you updated with future developments.

Be safe and stay healthy!
