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.

Ideally, safety, security and resilience are already included at the planning and design phase of large scale multifunctional complex infrastructures. In ELASSTIC, the approach for this purpose is developed and integrated in close cooperation with key players in planning, design, building and management of large building complexes.

The proposed concept of the ELASSTIC project, which is presented in Figure 2, is based upon the following key features:

  • A comprehensive approach for designing safe, secure and resilient large scale built infrastructures
  • Extended BIM technology (BIM+), i.e. Building Information Modelling program including a set of tools to enable architects, structural engineers and building services engineers to assess the safety, security and resilience of designs (see Figure 2 below)
  • Smart and reinforced building elements
  • Coupling and integration of BIM and BMS
  • Real time information on the safety, security and resilience of infrastructure for a smart evacuation system
  • Validation of the design approach, BIM+, BMS+, supportive tools, technologies and elements by making a 3D blueprint (design) of a multi-functional, large scale urban complex (the ELASSTIC-complex)
  • Recommendations for a regulatory framework
