After a brief hibernation on the site at the end of 2009, construction started back up at the Swedish/Issaquah Campus site in the Issaquah Highlands in mid-January. Work began on the facility’s foundation, including pouring concrete and bringing in a large crane that will be used to erect the structural steel (the “skeleton”) of the entire medical complex.
From here on out, construction will move at an aggressive pace. Over the next nine months, the new hospital and outpatient center will take shape — a good portion of the outside of the facility will be completed. And, the roof of the new campus will be in place just in time for the fall season. At that point, significant interior work will begin.
