Building Care construction is underway. From now until building opening in Spring 2022, there will be ongoing construction activity at the hospital campus. Seattle Children’s will publish a weekly post on this Construction Blog that outlines the work expected to occur the following week. We will also post to this blog whenever a construction activity will be especially impactful to neighbors.

From March 18 to March 24, construction crews are scheduled to perform the following activities:

  • Excavation
  • Install “lagging” to prevent cave-ins during earthwork
  • Install tie backs/anchors for retaining walls
  • Form and pour concrete footing and wall
  • Internal activities on L1 of Forest A: install hangers, pipes, firestops and seismic restraints for multiple water and air systems; core drilling in Forest stairwell #1; install infection prevention barriers; pour equipment pads

Construction noise will be generated throughout the week. The noisiest external work will be installing tie backs/anchors, which will take place all week. The noisiest internal work will be the core drilling.

Expect heavy truck traffic as excavated soil is hauled away from the site. Construction activity is weather-dependent and subject to change based on conditions.

All work will take place within standard construction hours: 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday to Friday, and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday.
