There will be ongoing construction activity for Building Care 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 April 5 to April 11, construction crews are scheduled to perform the following activities:

  • Special note: On April 8, we will begin the first phase of reconfiguring the Emergency Department (ED) drop-off and drive aisle. The ED vehicular entrance will remain in the same location for now, but ED vehicles will no longer exit onto 40th Avenue NE; instead, they will be routed north through the hospital campus.
  • Build out interior spaces
  • Framing
  • Paint
  • Install metal sheeting and panels
  • Install and trim mechanical and electrical wiring and plumbing equipment
  • Install drywall
  • Install ceilings
  • Install flooring
  • Pressure washing
  • Form and pour concrete slabs
  • Demolish temporary power switchboard and temporary duct bank
  • Building connection work:
    • Paint and install doors and glass on level 3 of River C
    • Install and trim utility wiring, and install ceiling on level 7 of River C
    • Demolish walls, floors and ceilings; install utility wiring; and install windows on level 1 of Forest A

Construction noise will be generated throughout the week. Expect heavy truck traffic. Construction activity is weather-dependent and subject to change based on conditions.
