Guest blog from Todd Johnson, vice president Facilities at Seattle Children’s

I had a chance to visit the Laurelon Terrace site late last week and was amazed as I walked the exterior. It is exciting for me to see so much activity as we prepare the site to begin the work on what will be an amazing new building. One of the most impressive accomplishments to date has been that we have been able to recycle 90% of the materials from the Laurelon Terrace condominiums and are well on our way to achieving our goal of 95%. To date we have removed 1,440 tons of material from the site and diverted 1,300 tons to local recyclers, including:

  • 538 tons of concrete
  • 15 tons of wood
  • 8 tons of metal

We’re all very proud of this.  Be sure to check out the project progress on our live webcam. If you have questions about the project you can reach us via the 24-hour message hotline at 206-987-7744 or e-mail us at
