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 July 27 to Aug. 2, 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

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.
