Harborview Medical Center Cart Washers and Sterilizers

This design-build project included equipment replacements in the Central Sterile Department. Structural modifications addressed the need to add floor depressions to accommodate the new cart washer.

The installation of the cartwash unit required reconstruction of a reinforced, concrete floor slab for the depression. Considerations included access to the area under the slab and addressing complications linked to vital medical systems that were attached to the structure.

Design-build delivery allowed for early detection of problems and developing solutions that compressed construction time and hospital disruptions.
