A Tree-mendous Transplant

Here at Seattle Children’s, we have lots of experience performing transplants, but we’ve never worked with a patient weighing 130,000 pounds before. That’s the weight of a scarlet oak tree we moved last week using a crane and a flatbed trailer. Read full post »

Saturday work will complete repaving project

We will install a final layer of pavement in parking lot four starting at 9 a.m. on Saturday, May 26. The work will generate some noise as well as some odors. This will complete a repaving project that enables us to move the gate serving parking lot four on the northeast corner of our campus.

 

Pagasa packing up after job well done

Our Building Hope team is about to lose its tallest, strongest and hardest working player. Pagasa, the 244-foot tall construction crane, is coming down May 24 after spending the last year hoisting heavy loads of building materials into the sky. A mobile crane will arrive May 23 to assist in the dismantling, which is expected to take two days. Read full post »

Repaving begins this week

We’re moving the gate that serves parking lot four in the northeast portion of our campus, requiring some repaving. The work begins at 8 a.m. on Friday, May 18, when contractors will demolish and remove asphalt and continues at 9 a.m. on Saturday, May 19, when they’ll begin to repave and install concrete curbing.  They’ll install the final layer of pavement starting at 9 a.m. on Saturday, May 26. The work will generate some noise as well as some odors from the repaving. You may also hear some noise on Wednesday, May 16, when contractors saw through pavement to install underground electrical lines.  Thank you for your patience as we complete this work.

Concrete Surface Work Begins This Week

Project postponed until further notice.

Work begins Monday, May 14, to restore 40th Avenue Northeast to a concrete surface between Northeast 45th Street and Sand Point Way. The street was torn up and patched with asphalt so that Puget Sound Energy could lay a new gas line to help serve our Building Hope expansion. The work will take about two weeks. During that time, 40th Avenue will be reduced to a single lane operating in one direction at a time with no street parking.
