October construction update
Skagit Regional Health - Station Square is moving quickly toward achieving substantial completion of the project’s construction phase which is anticipated in November.
Several recent accomplishments are visible from the outside, including the installation of exterior signage and paving of the clinic’s spacious parking lot. The site’s X-ray unit, which will support the on-site Urgent Care and Family Medicine practices, will be installed before the end of the month. Landscaping will also be complete before the end of October.
The project remains on schedule with an anticipated opening on January 9, 2023.
Mount Vernon Surgery Center structure coming together
Skagit Regional Health – Mount Vernon Surgery Center is also taking shape at the site just northwest of Skagit Valley Hospital. On September 29, 255 yards of concrete – delivered by an estimated 26 trucks – was poured at the location for the building’s slab on grade. Check out the video of the dramatic pour here.
The building’s foundations include 75 tons of rebar. A few days after the big concrete pour, a crane was delivered and assembled on the site to begin the process of lifting the steel beams into place.
As of Oct. 12, the steel frame for three floors is in place for more than half of the 60,000-square-foot building. The steel is fabricated by a local company, B&B Fabricators in Arlington.
A traditional “topping out” ceremony with placement of the final piece of steel is scheduled for October 21.
