Enhanced Large scale Architecture with Safety and Security Technologies and special Information Capabilities

Objective

The overall objective of the ELASSTIC project is to improve the security and resilience of large scale multifunctional building complexes to natural and man-made disasters by providing a methodology and tools which enable to include security and resilience from the early design and planning phase of such projects.

The ELASSTIC concept proposed is based upon the following key features:
1) A comprehensive approach for designing safe, secure and resilient large scale built infrastructures
2) A set of tools to enable architects, structural engineers and building installation engineers to assess the safety, security and resilience of designs and to optimize the integral design
3) Coupling and integration of these tools into Building Information Modelling (BIM) technology resulting in extended BIM technology (BIM+)
4) Smart and reinforced building elements, to measure the actual building condition combined with an increased bearing capacity and resistance
5) Coupling and integration of BIM and BMS (Building Management System)
6) Real time information on the safety, security and resilience of infrastructure

Validation of the approach and developed tools will be done by evaluation the design of a multifunctional, resilient, large scale urban complex (anno 2020), called the ELASSTIC complex. This large multifunctional complex combines housing, shopping centre, transport node, business centre and entertainment centre.

The ELASSTIC complex will not only be secure and resilient to disasters, it will also be designed to ensure fast and efficient evacuation in case of a disaster. For a crowded complex comprising a large number of people, the design of a smart evacuation system should be included at the start of the design of the complex. Taking evacuation and safety installations into account in the design phase will increase safety and is less expensive compared to an evacuation system integrated after the complex is build or at the final design stage.
