Abstract

The choice to refurbish or demolish/rebuild a building requires the analysis of numerous aspects.
This paper highlights the role of the main factors involved and describes the methodological
approach adopted, based on a multi-criteria analysis, for the definition of a decision support
index. The final part presents the results of applying the methodology to a case-study of a school
building, representative of a category of buildings with recurring typological and constructive
characteristics.
