Pediatric Tower E construction update

Following the successful installation of the tower crane this past weekend, here is a look ahead at upcoming construction activities for the next three weeks.

Weeks: December 21, 28 and January 4

  • The tower crane was successfully installed on December 19 and will be used to erect the material hoist on the north side of Building E the week of December 21. The installation of the material hoist will involve work within the Food and Nutrition and Pediatric Radiology spaces on levels 3 and 5. Specific operational coordination with these departments will occur.
  • In early January 2016, overhead sidewalk barricades will be installed over portions of the sidewalk along the west side of Fannin Street adjacent to Building E once the tower crane is in full operation.
  • Work on the roof of Building E will continue to protect the existing roofing, install safety handrails around the building perimeter and prepare stub columns to extend up into the vertical expansion. No work will occur from Thursday, December 24 through Sunday, December 27 and Thursday, December 31 through Sunday, January 3.
