Technology Framework for Real-Time Assessment of Spatial Conflicts in Building Retrofitting*

Leonardo Messi, Massimo Vaccarini, Alessandro Carbonari, Alessandra Corneli, Berardo Naticchia

Polytechnic University of Marche, DICEA Department, Ancona, Italy

In the field of construction works planning, workspaces must be considered as limited resources, in the same way as labour crews and equipment. Being the work-related spatial information both contextual and affected by construction site's dynamics, a real-time management approach based on lean principles must be adopted.

In this paper, a BIM-based serious game engine, framed within a high-level system architecture, is presented to enhance work progress management. The generation of a geometric model to perform look-ahead simulations for predicting spatial conflicts is showcased relatively to a retrofitted residential building.

The paper provides a support in the definition of COVID-19 protocols in order to allow the safe re-opening of an educational building. It also derives a reusable approach extendable to other building typologies. The integrated adoption of multiple simulation oriented technologies is investigated. A case study is considered, where crowd simulation, agent-based simulation and communication tools have been integrated with a hybrid approach. By means of computer games, the adoption of which is within the scope of this paper, end-users can experience school use processes within a virtual environment (1) contributing to the realism of the simulation and (2) obtaining

Road Network Layout Planning based on Evaluation of Connectivity and Asset Criticality*

Georgios M. Hadjidemetriou, Manuel Herrera, Ajith K. Parlikad

University of Cambridge, United Kingdom

State of the art research in ensuring transport infrastructure resilience focuses on adopting a network perspective. However, there is no comprehensive, widespread method for evaluating connectivity and proposing alternative routes to improve it. Presented herein is a framework that: assesses road network connectivity, using a “closeness” measure and focusing on routes passing by the vulnerable asset of bridges; and proposes the development of optimal alternative routes, using a genetic algorithm. The results showed a significant improvement of network connectivity and the potential of the method to serve as the basis for updated transport infrastructure planning practices.
