Upcoming Building Care Construction Activities: April 29 to May 5

Building Care construction is underway. From now until building opening in Spring 2022, there will be ongoing construction activity at the hospital campus. 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 April 29 to May 5, construction crews are scheduled to perform the following activities:

  • Excavation
  • Install brackets and scaffold on south wall
  • Install “lagging” to prevent cave-ins during earthwork
  • Install tie backs/anchors for retaining walls
  • Install rebar for footings
  • Internal activities on L1 of Forest A (Friends of Costco Building): temporary oxygen system shutdowns and new line tie-ins; remove existing oxygen line; install seismic restraints; install new pipe pathways; frame and paint soffit; remove scaffolding and infection prevention barrier
  • Activities south of Forest A: excavation and core drilling

Construction noise will be generated throughout the week. The noisiest external work will be installing tie backs/anchors (scheduled for April 29 to May 1) and the core drilling (scheduled for May 1 to May 6). The noisiest internal work will be the installation of new pipe pathways.

Expect heavy truck traffic as excavated soil is hauled away from the site. 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.


Drill Rig Delivery April 25 at 5 a.m.

A new drill rig will be delivered to the Building Care construction site and unloaded on Thursday, April 25 beginning at 5 a.m. The truck delivering the drill rig will enter and exit the site via the Sand Point Way construction entrance. This work is occurring early to minimize traffic impacts from the oversize load. Moderate noise will be generated during the unloading, but impacts to neighbors should be minimal because the unloading will take place within the fenced construction site. If you have questions, please call 206-987-8000 or email construction@seattlechildrens.org.

Crane to Be Used at Hospital Campus March 30

On Saturday, March 30, a large crane will be delivered to the hospital campus at 8 a.m. and used to remove a temporary generator located near the Mountain building. Large vehicles associated with the crane delivery will enter and exit the hospital campus via Penny Drive at Sand Point Way NE; we do not anticipate impacts to traffic on Sand Point Way. Normal construction noise levels are expected. The crane will be removed from the site by the end of the day.

Please note this work is separate from Building Care, which uses its own crane.

For questions or concerns, please call the construction pager at 206-469-5860. Thank you for your patience.


Wood-Chipping March 26 at Hospital

Wood-chipping will occur at the hospital campus on Tuesday, March 26 within the Building Care construction area. The chipping will generate normal levels of construction noise all day.
