SPS provides a daily flow of sterilized patient care supplies and equipment to points of need, and returns contaminated items for centralized decontamination and is one of the main lines of defense against harmful microorganisms in the healthcare environment. Building 10, constructed in 1929 as a Recreation Building, offered a challenging structure to house the relocated SPS department. The constraints of the original structural frame necessitated a reconfiguration of certain aspects of the program and the construction of an addition which was designed to blend with the building's Classical Revival Architecture. Critical design considerations included: work flow, the movement of clean (sterile) and contaminated items; staff flow in which personnel work either on the clean or dirty side of the unit to avoid cross contamination; and air flow to minimize microorganism movement from dirty to clean areas. Systems integration involved intricate interrelationships between complex mechanical and plumbing requirements and highly specialized sterilization equipment, and robotic fulfillment.
