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 Oct. 5 to Oct. 11, construction crews are scheduled to perform the following activities:

  • Pour concrete for slabs and walls

Construction noise will be generated throughout the week. The fireproofing will generate some odors. Internally, the loudest activity will be the demolition on River C level 6. 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.
