During the architectural planning of modern, complex, block-structured, large-area located, but still landscape-harmonized health-care buildings, the key is the optimal positioning of the blocks and functions, simultaneously ensuring the most-effective backup-paths for any single transportation route failure in the buildings to speed up the operation, reduce the maintenance costs and especially to improve the satisfaction of the patients. Mathematical statements are to be solved with multiple serious challenges when formulating the positioning problem with resilience to the buildings for any single failure. An innovative graph representation referred as link doubling is presented where Minimal cost multi commodity flow problems could be solved.
