At the cutting edge when it comes to techniques and processes, gbi was chosen by the CISSS des Laurentides to design a mobile medical device reprocessing unit, a first in Quebec for this type of specialized equipment.
The project consisted of designing sterilization equipment to increase the capacity of hospitals that lack space for this component or to use during renovation work. The mobile aspect—the very essence of the project—is what makes it truly innovative.
gbi’s teams worked tirelessly on designing this unit, consisting of electromechanical systems and medical devices.
In order to ensure that the unit—comparable in size to a 1,600 sq. ft. single-story house—could be moved, the number of modules had to be reduced. The layout was designed to limit the amount of piping and equipment needing to pass through the joints of the mechanical room. In general, an MMDRU requires 2,500 to 3,000 sq. ft. in a hospital, whereas this one has an area of 1,600 sq. ft., including the mechanical room.
