Building Care construction is underway. There will be ongoing construction activity at the hospital campus until the building opens in spring 2022.

We will also post to this blog whenever a construction activity will be especially impactful to neighbors.

Construction noise will be generated throughout the week. There will be increased truck activity and noise on Oct. 24 and 25 associated with the removal of the tower crane (see separate blog post called “Building Care Tower Crane to Be Removed” for details). In general, expect heavy truck traffic, primarily for concrete and material deliveries. Construction activity is weather-dependent and subject to change based on conditions.

The tower crane removal will take place Saturday, Oct. 24, and Sunday, Oct. 25. All other 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.
