Crane To Be Used at Hospital Campus Jan. 30

On Sunday, Jan. 30, construction personnel will deliver a large piece of mechanical equipment (a deaerator tank) to Seattle Children’s hospital campus and will use a crane to move the tank and other equipment. Crews will be on site starting at 5 a.m. to assess conditions. The crane will arrive at approximately 6 a.m. and will be set up at that time. We expect all work to be complete by 2 p.m. Flaggers will provide traffic control as needed, but all public streets will remain open and on-street parking will not be affected. Neighbors may hear noise while the crane is being set up, used and disassembled, and when the truck carrying the crane enters and exits the site.

This work is weather-dependent and subject to change based on conditions. Please call 206-987-8000 or email construction@seattlechildrens.org with questions.


Tree Maintenance Work around Ocean, Mountain and Springbrook

Starting Monday, Dec. 13 through Wednesday, Dec. 15, there will be tree work on the hospital campus between 9:00 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. that will primarily affect the Ocean and Mountain buildings as well as the Springbrook property. Tree pruning around Ocean and Mountain will occur Monday and Tuesday with no impacts to staff or visitor parking but will create some noise from chainsaws and clippers. The removal of hazardous trees that were damaged in a recent storm at Springbrook and near Ocean garage will occur on Wednesday with similar noise impacts. For questions, please contact Meghan Fuller, Manager of Grounds Maintenance.


Drone Photography at the Hospital Campus Dec. 13 to Dec. 17

As part of a Facilities Conditions Assessment (FCA) project, drones will be capturing photographs of the hospital campus the week of Dec. 13.  The purpose of the FCA project is to complete a thorough mechanical, electrical and architectural assessment of hospital campus.

Drones, along with some digital cameras, will be capturing photographs and thermal imaging of all the hospital campus buildings. The thermal imaging must be done during the wintertime to best capture the heat loss of the buildings; however, this work is weather dependent and may have to be rescheduled in the case of heavy rain.

Images will capture the roofs and all the exterior walls of the buildings. The drones will be traveling up and down the outside walls and outside windows. Neighbors may briefly see the drones above the hospital or adjacent to buildings at times during this work. We don’t expect any noise issues. The drone work will be coordinated with the helicopter landings.

For any questions or concerns, please call 206-987-8000 or email construction@seattlechildrens.org.


Generators at Mountain Loading Dock Nov. 19 to Nov. 22

Due to a planned temporary electrical shutdown, large generators will be placed at the Mountain Loading dock restricting access from Nov. 19, at 12:30 p.m. through Nov. 21, at 4:00 p.m. The generators will run overnight on Saturday Nov. 20 and are not expected to be noisy for neighbors. For any questions or concerns, please call 206-987-8000 or email construction@seattlechildrens.org.

Landscaping on Sand Point Way, Sept. 28

On Tuesday, Sept. 28, a landscaping crew will plant vegetation in the planter strip on the east side of Sand Point Way NE between 40th Avenue NE and the hospital’s main entrance at Penny Drive. The right vehicular travel lane of northbound Sand Point Way will be closed while the planting is underway; the bike lane, however, will remain open. We expect this work will take one day to complete. The vegetation planting was previously scheduled but was delayed.

A separate project to fill a gap in the sidewalk may occur at the same time just north of the planting work. If the sidewalk project proceeds, the sidewalk will be closed that day as well.
