Construction Activites This Week At Hospital Site

Here are the construction activities taking place this week through Sunday at the Children's Hospital Construction site:

Building Exterior Cladding

Crews are onsite installing the window frames and glass, and the metal panels that will make up the majority of the exterior enclosure. The glass awnings and the colored glass fins will follow, along with the exterior stone wall shingles. These activities will continue into summer.

Installation of Metal Stud-Framed Walls

Crews are onsite installing the metal stud-framed walls that will make up the interior and exterior framing of the building.


Landscaping Activities

Crews are grading for the Plaza fire lane along Train and Giraffe buildings. You will see concrete and pump trucks and equipment during this activity. The fire lane, which consists of a retaining wall and concrete walkway, are expected to be complete by mid-February.

Crews are also working to install the retaining wall and concrete stairs at the southeast corner of the site.


Installation of New Gas Line

PSE has completed the new gas line install along 40th Avenue NE. Crews have temporarily patched the removed concrete paving panels with asphalt and will need to return to install concrete panels in the coming months.  When it occurs, this concrete paving activity will again disrupt parking and traffic.
