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 June 1 to June 7, construction crews are scheduled to perform the following activities:

  • Erect cladding and support steel
  • Pour concrete for walls, shafts, slabs, pads, curbs and decks
  • Install fireproofing
  • Paint
  • Install anchors and clips for windows
  • Set and weld exterior walls
  • Install temporary roofing
  • Install mechanical and electrical roofing supports
  • Install glass
  • Install elevator machines and equipment
  • Install mechanical, electrical and plumbing equipment
  • Build out electrical, mechanical, generator and pneumatic tube blower rooms
  • Install insulation
  • Install fire sprinkler systems
  • Install flooring
  • Install exhaust air, plumbing and medical gas risers
  • Set air handling units and supports
  • Interior activities: install mechanical, electrical, plumbing and drywall on River B level 3 for new vending machines location; set up infection prevention barriers and demolish ceiling for new chapel location on River A level 7.

Construction noise will be generated throughout the week. Expect heavy truck traffic, primarily for concrete and material deliveries. 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.
