The problem of interferences due to the refurbishing activities of a complex building, carried out in parallel with the daily activities that characterize it, is not to be underestimated, especially when talking about a hospital structure.

Abstract

The problem of interferences due to the refurbishing activities of a complex building, carried out in parallel with the daily activities that characterize it, is not to be underestimated, especially when talking about a hospital structure. Consequently, the benefits that would be obtained by reducing the presence of construction activities result important in terms of safety and health of users, above all hospital patients. Setting the best solution of Gantt in the early stages of planning can be a winning strategy, as well as being able to recognize the safest and fastest path (e.g. predicting which is the fastest way to reach the rooms taken into consideration by the refurbishment). At the same time, being able to check which activities are most penalized by the presence of the construction site and to set which are essential for the survival of the activities that characterize the environment to be refurbished, e.g. the hospital ward, is a valid support tool for the healthcare staff. The proposed tool aims, on the one hand, to help designers by proposing the best possible Gantt solutions in relation to the management of daily activities that can not be suspended, and on the other hand, to support healthcare staff in the organization of these latter.
