Seattle Children’s Hospital, Forest B (Building Care)
Seattle Children’s Hospital is committed to integrated project delivery methodologies which focus on eliminating waste and optimizing results through continuous process improvement. The delivery process has been highly collaborative among all team members which has promoted innovation and delivered maximum value to the client. The scope of the project includes construction of a new eight-story hospital facility (325,000 SF) and a 3-story (150,000 SF) underground parking garage. The Forest B building connects to the surrounding buildings on campus through various skybridges and connecting floors. The phased fast-track design schedule for the interior build-out of each floor requires full use of our lean, just-in-time delivery processes. Forest B is scheduled to be substantially complete in September 2021 with man-power peaking at just over 100 field workers.
As an anchor institution, Seattle Children’s Hospital supports the employment and income of the community it serves and looks at all factors of children’s health which extends beyond care in just the hospital environment. Seattle Children’s overall mission is to provide hope, care and cures to help every child live the healthiest and most fulfilling life possible. To this end, a 10% Diversity and Inclusion goal has been established for the project that is made up of MBE, WBE, DBE and Hubzone business enterprises.
When complete, this facility will provide Seattle Children’s Hospital with crucial new spaces, including: Operating Rooms, Clinical Lab Space, Sterile Processing, Procedure and Treatment Rooms as well as 20 new patient beds. The mechanical systems are state-of-the-art with a focus on resiliency, redundancy and flexibility to support all program user groups.
