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 Aug. 3 to Aug. 9, construction crews are scheduled to perform the following activities:

  • Pour concrete for walls and shafts
  • Install fireproofing
  • Framing
  • Paint
  • Set and weld exterior walls
  • Install roofing
  • Install glass

Construction noise will be generated throughout the week. The soil installation and fireproofing will generate some odors. 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.
