Disasters chatter properties and fragilize their safety and sustainability. Whether man-made or natural hazards, they render the buildings’ habitability, functionality, and operationality inappropriate. Thus, stakeholders directly assess the damages and plan for adequate and accurate housing support of the surveyed blocks. These plans
and strategies cope with the complexity of the occurring problems and highlight the support priorities and their types for a set of damaged buildings. Therefore, combining multi-criteria decision-making tools and implementing their techniques in defining suitable measures is of paramount necessity. This paper presents a modified approach for the combination of ITARA and TOPSIS while coping with the RRP and standardizing approaches. To the best of our knowledge, the proposed combination scheme is a novel approach to categorizing distressed buildings regarding their required assistance, priorities, rank reversal problem, threshold criteria, and alternatives.
