The new medical center is definitely taking shape since starting major work in January 2010. The project peeks through the hilltop’s trees, and can be seen from miles away traveling from Bellevue to Issaquah along 1-90.
In November work continues on the exterior skin at the hospital wings: masonry and precast will be finishing up, while glass and glazing will begin mid-month. Work also continues on installing the roof and screening elements.
For the interior of the hospital wings, build-out work moves forward that includes wall, ceiling and elevator installation. Painting will start in the center wing on Level G at the end of November.
Medical Office Building
Charging ahead in November, the Medical Office Building’s exterior glass framing will be installed through Level 5, and glazed-in up to Level 4. In addition, installation of the roof membrane continues.
Interior work includes the start of painting and placing ceramic tile, along with the ceiling grid beginning at the end of November, starting on Level 1. Like the hospital wings, progress continues on elevator work as well.
For the campus as a whole, efforts “tying-in” site utilities to the City’s infrastructure continues, including power, natural gas, storm and sewer lines.
