Seattle Children's Bellevue Clinic

2011

The design and construction process for Seattle Children’s Bellevue Clinic (SCBC) was driven by Children’s Lean approach to patient care delivery, which eliminates waste and optimizes the process in order to produce the best possible results. SCBC is one of the first projects in Washington State to implement IPD (Integrated Project Delivery) and Lean design techniques. Building Information Modeling (BIM) was utilized to capture the design intent, and models were shared between the design team and construction team. The partnership between owner, design, and construction teams resulted in a culture of trust, respect, and collaboration that maximized value for the client’s budget while reducing construction time. This new 200,000 SF campus consists of an ambulatory surgery center and underground parking garage.  The sloping site allows for parking space underneath the building while creating a landscaped plaza level above.
