Cascadia : UW Health Sciences Lab Project Tour


Program:             Health Science Lab Tour at UW


Hosts:                 Skanska and BMWC Constructors



Skanska and BMWC Constructors have offered LCI Cascadia chapter, in partnership with WSSHE, the opportunity to tour the Health Sciences Laboratories in the G and H Wing of the University of Washington Medical Center.

This project is part of the University of Washington’s “Restore the Core” campaign designed to update the ageing buildings of the university campus with modern amenities, code, and safety requirements.

This has been a challenging project combining the difficult requirements for medical facilities with the immerging needs of a modern laboratory environment.

This will be an informal tour where they will share with us the project and cite organization, onsite partnership, applications of lean in the project development, and lessons learned.

This exclusive tour includes a behind the scenes look at building mechanical renovations before building close out. It is a must see for hospital engineers, designers and constructors alike!

The group will then adjourn to dinner at Pyramid Ale house for a few minutes of slides and more in depth discussion of the project as it has developed from its difficulties to its successes!

Hardhats, safety glasses and proper footwear will be required! Contact Myra Gudge if you will need a loaner, there are limited supplies available.
