Hospital Constrution Activities This Week

Here are the construction related activities happening at Children's Hospital this week:

Pedestrian and Traffic Disruptions
Due to the high volume of construction activities along SPW, 40th Ave NE and NE 45th St, please walk, bike and drive carefully.

Street Improvement Work
Work is progressing along SPW between 40th Ave NE and Penny Drive. There will be a new sidewalk, cycle path, and Metro stop with shelter.

Hartmann Street Frontage
At the Hartmann Building, Sellen crews have completed frontage construction. The Children’s Grounds crew will now be installing irrigation and landscaping. Street trees will be set this week. In the next few weeks Metro will also be installing a bus shelter.

40th and Sand Point Way Signal Project
This project has begun. There will be a lot of activity on all four corners, and safety during this time is a primary concern. Please be careful and follow the directions of signage and flaggers!

Building Interior Work
Crews are onsite completing the metal stud-framed walls and gypsum wallboard that make up most of the interior partitions. They are also completing duct work for the air handling units which have been installed, and running conduit for all of the power and lighting systems. Crews are also installing the fire sprinklers on all of the floors. Besides these basic systems, we have a pneumatic tube system, medical gas systems, and many low voltage wiring systems for all of the specialty equipment being installed.

Helen Lane
Near the disabled access ramp up from Sand Point Way NE there is a temporary construction fence with work proceeding around the connector road tie-in. Please be careful in this area.

Building Exterior Cladding
At the site elevator, near the Giraffe entrance, exterior framing is complete and the windows are installed. Crews are now installing the metal siding and roofing.
