Project: Construction In Vicinities: Innovative Co-creation

Cities face the challenge to adapt to changing capacity in a complex environment. Construction is required to create more attractive, sustainable and economically viable urban areas. However, transportation of construction related goods and personnel is causing negative impacts. A lack of early and accurate information on both logistics processes and criteria of stakeholders, leads to disputes and disruptions that harm the construction work and the surrounding community. CIVIC (Construction In Vicinities: Innovative Co-creation) facilitates and supports transport to, from and around urban construction sites that minimises disruptions in the surrounding community and optimises energy efficiency. This is done by 1) evaluation of alternative measures in a multi-actor participatory setting; 2) optimisation models for planning and impact assessment using smart data; and 3) development of smart governance concepts for successful and efficient implementation of these tools. The results of the two and a half-year project are the identification of energy efficient transport solutions to, from and around construction projects, by implementation of participatory analysis; increased understanding among all stakeholders of the impacts of improved logistics and mobility; and recommendations for smart governance concepts, which go beyond urban construction as they create a supportive platform for all urban development decision processes.
