Idaho AGC Going Up

Crews will put the last beam on top of the four story Children’s Pavilion at St. Luke’s Children’s Hospital this Wednesday.

Employees signed the 21-foot beam nicknamed “Jenny” in recent months with their names, hearts and a few short messages. It will be hoisted into place during a ceremony as construction shifts to finishing the interior and exterior finishes.

The health system released new renderings of the project which show updated detailing on the skybridge over Avenue B that will connect the new structure to the existing hospital building.

The bridge now features a wavy frosted-glass pattern, while new art installations include stylized trees and a sculpture of a bear on the building’s roof and an elk near the front entrance.

St. Luke’s says the tower crane at the project is set to come down later this month – and the bridge is expected to be hoisted into place later this year.

The 100,000 square foot building is expected to cost $42 million to complete, including $22 million in donations. It is on track to open in the summer of 2019.
