Decision-making methods applied to regenerative process of existing buildings


The path traced in construction sector leads to an increased attention to building heritage and its refurbishment into “nearly zero-energy buildings”. The regeneration process of an existing building is complex and requires the designer to use the distinctive features of the building and of the site where is built in order to achieve the objectives. One of the most important moments of this process is the choice of the interventions. The objective of this research is to identify a replicable decision-making method to support the designer in identifying the optimum solution through the Operations Research.
