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 23 to March 29, 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
  • Base framing for connection to River
  • Install anchors for windows
  • Set up lift system
  • Set and weld walls
  • Set stairs
  • Install mechanical, electrical and plumbing equipment
  • Paint
  • Seal floors
  • Install fire sprinkler systems
  • Install rain leaders
  • Set natural gas meter
  • Grading and backfill
  • Internal activities: demolition and mechanical, electrical, and plumbing installation on River 7

Construction noise will be generated throughout the week. 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.
