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 Dec. 16 to Dec. 22, construction crews are scheduled to perform the following activities:

  • Install rebar and pour concrete for walls, slabs, vestibule, sidewalk, and curbs
  • Install overhead protection measures
  • Install support steel
  • Erect structural steel
  • Install waterproofing on walls
  • Install infection prevention barrier
  • Set stairs
  • Install elevator machines
  • Install fire sprinkler system
  • Install sewer, storm and water pipes
  • Install underground natural gas sleeves near 40th Avenue NE
  • Internal activities: install new pipe, wiring and pneumatic tube system pathways on Forest A, level 1; install pipes for pneumatic tube system extension; reconfigure equipment in existing fire command center

Construction noise will be generated throughout the week. The loudest activities will be associated with the structural steel erection. Expect heavy truck traffic, primarily for concrete and steel delivery. 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.
