Up With The New, Down With The Old

Two of our large interior elevators are now operational and ready to transport workers and materials.  As construction moves inside Building Hope and workers begin using the permanent elevators, we will no longer need the exterior manlifts.  These will be coming down during the week of July 23rd.

A Tree-mendous Transplant

Here at Seattle Children’s, we have lots of experience performing transplants, but we’ve never worked with a patient weighing 130,000 pounds before. That’s the weight of a scarlet oak tree we moved last week using a crane and a flatbed trailer. Read full post »


Elevator work requires Saturday shift

A crew of 20-25 workers will install elevator fronts for our Building Hope expansion from 9 a.m.-5:30 p.m. this Saturday, June 2. This is a minimal impact project.  The only evidence of work going on will be the operation of the external elevators.

Saturday work will complete repaving project

We will install a final layer of pavement in parking lot four starting at 9 a.m. on Saturday, May 26. The work will generate some noise as well as some odors. This will complete a repaving project that enables us to move the gate serving parking lot four on the northeast corner of our campus.
