Upcoming Building Care Construction Activities: Sept. 27 to Oct. 3

Major construction on Building Care will conclude in October, but work will continue within the building until spring 2022. After October, we will no longer publish weekly posts on the Construction Blog for Building Care. However, we will continue to post to this blog whenever an activity will affect neighbors.

From Sept. 27 to Oct. 3, construction crews are scheduled to perform the following activities:

  • Build out interior spaces
  • Painting and striping
  • Install soil and mulch
  • Plant landscaping

Construction noise will be generated throughout the week. Expect heavy truck traffic. 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.

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


Potential Union Picketers at Seattle Children’s Hospital Campus

The Northwest Carpenters Union (NCU) has given notice of its intent to strike. If the strike happens, union members may begin picketing outside the Building Care construction site at Seattle Children’s Hospital campus as early as Thursday, Sept. 16, and may also picket outside the Odessa Brown Children’s Clinic Othello construction site.

We are hopeful the union will reach an agreement that can avoid a strike. However, we wanted to make our neighbors aware of the possibility of picketers should a strike occur.

If a strike does take place, work on Building Care that does not rely on members of NCU will continue.

Please email construction@seattlechildrens.org or call 206-987-8000 if you have questions.

Renovations Begin at 70th and Sand Point Way in early September

Starting Tuesday September 7, renovations will begin on the 70th and Sand Point Way building to prepare the second floor (upper floor) to become the new home to the Autism Clinic and Outpatient Behavioral Health program. Renovations are anticipated to take about a year to complete and the new clinic space is expected to open in late 2022 or early 2023.

For the first six weeks of work, demolition activities will occur inside of the building between 2:00 a.m. and 8:00 a.m. weekdays.  At 8:00 a.m., crews will move to working outside of the building until around 12:00 p.m.  After the first 6 weeks, construction is expected to occur weekdays between 6:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. until the middle of next year (2022).

The majority of the work will be confined to the interior of the building, with the exception of a playground renovation that will happen later in the project. Neighbors may hear some noise on the exterior of the building from debris removal during demolition and crews will be sure to limit noisy activity until after 8:00 a.m.

Some parking changes will be in place for staff and visitors, please follow all posted signage when visiting the building. Staff are not allowed to park on neighborhood streets and Seattle Children’s security will continue to monitor to ensure staff are complying with our parking policies.
