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 Sept. 6 to Sept. 12, construction crews are scheduled to perform the following activities:

  • Build out interior spaces
  • Paint
  • Install soil and mulch
  • Plant landscaping
  • Grind and patch asphalt
  • Remove asphalt and prep for new asphalt
