Building Care construction is underway. There will be ongoing construction activity at the hospital campus until the building opens in spring 2022. 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 16 to March 22, construction crews are scheduled to perform the following activities:

  • Erect structural and support steel
  • Install decking
  • Pour concrete for walls, shafts, curbs, slabs, decks and stairs
  • Install fireproofing
  • Install anchors for windows
  • Set and weld walls
  • Install glass
  • Set stairs
  • Install mechanical, electrical and plumbing equipment
  • Install elevator machines
  • Paint
  • Seal floors
  • Install fire sprinkler systems
  • Install rain leaders
  • Demolition at Forest A level L1 connection point
  • Install fuel oil pipes
  • Internal activities: install pipes for pneumatic tube system extension in River building; set up infection prevention barriers at Forest A connection points and River B family lounge

Construction noise will be generated throughout the week. The loudest activities will be those associated with erecting the steel and the demolition at the Forest A level L1 connection point. 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.
