Building Care Construction Site Closed March 25 to April 7

From March 25 to April 7 the Building Care construction site will be closed for work. The contractor working on the building has decided to temporarily pause construction out of an abundance of caution to keep their workers safe during the COVID-19 response. Limited staff will be onsite to ensure the worksite remains secure during this time. Work is planned to resume onsite on Wednesday, April 8.

Please call 206-987-8000 or email construction@seattlechildrens.org with questions.
