Construction Updates: Station Square
This page will be updated as construction of Skagit Regional Health - Station Square takes place.
Construction began in September 2021 with a target opening date of early 2023.
September 2022 - Construction crews are busy working on interior details of Skagit Regional Health – Station Square in downtown Mount Vernon.
Reception desks, paint and flooring have all been installed on the first and second floors creating a bright, welcoming space for patients. The modern chandelier is an architectural feature of the 30,000 square foot building, visible from the main lobbies on the first and second floors. Floor-to-ceiling windows accent the third floor common area offering a bird’s eye view of downtown.
Thoughtful design details, though not visible, will play an important role in the patient experience. One notable example is the work put into keeping patient areas quiet from the busy downtown corridor and nearby train tracks. Early in the project sound studies were conducted to determine the noise level and frequency of ambient sounds in the area. Based on the study findings, the project team planned the building layout and selected acoustical control materials, including sound deadening wall boards and ceiling tiles virtually eliminating outside noise from interior suites.
The HVAC system is another low profile feature of the building that offers enhanced infection control abilities by supplying fresh, outside air to each of the exam rooms.
Construction is scheduled to be completed in late November 2022, allowing time for furniture and equipment installation prior to the January 9, 2023 planned opening.
August 2022 - The Skagit Regional Health – Station Square construction project has reached several important milestones in recent weeks, including ordering all major equipment for the facility, pouring sidewalks around the clinic and installation of the building’s two elevators that will take patients to the second and third floors.
Interior painting continues this month. The clinic will feature a calming color palette and natural materials. The interior design will incorporate components that highlight the industrial qualities of the nearby train station creating a unique and soothing atmosphere for patients.
Upcoming tasks for the design team include confirming flooring selections and coordination of the facility’s electric vehicle (EV) charging station. The clinic will have one dual EV station at opening with plans to add an additional station in the future.
July 2022 - The construction team continues to make progress both inside and outside of the 30,000 square foot clinic in downtown Mount Vernon. Masonry work was recently finished and siding is nearing completion.
Inside, the first floor walls are being primed and painted.
This month electricity to the building has been turned on and lights have been installed in the parking lot.
The project remains on schedule with a projected opening date of January 9, 2023.
June 2022 - The Station Square facility project in downtown Mount Vernon is on schedule and on budget. Exterior cladding and masonry will be completed by the end of June. Inside the building, walls are going up. Priming and painting of the first floor will begin soon.
February 2022 - Steel beams were placed at our new Station Square location on February 9.
