CIVIC facilitates the participation of all stakeholders in the evaluation of alternative transport and logistics measures that minimise disruptions and nuisance and improve energy efficiency.

CIVIC, a part of the ENSCC call, was active between 2016-2018. You can read more about the project results below.

Handbook for Smart Construction Logistics

The CIVIC project developed a handbook for local governments, clients, developers, contractors, or any other actor that can influence logistics planning and the setup of construction projects. It can help local governments collaborating with private partners to realise more sustainable, and safer, construction works with less inconvenience and cleaner air. In addition, it can help clients, developers and contractors to ensure smooth and efficient construction operations.

CIVIC MACMA Aftermovie

This movie explains the use of the MAMCA (multi-actor, multi-critera analysis) in CIVIC. The MAMCA software, an online decision-making platform, provides an interactive method for weighting stakeholder objectives, evaluating options and providing easy-to-understand visualizations of evaluation outcomes. The MAMCA, developed by VUB, has been applied in the different demonstration cities (Amsterdam, Vienna, Brussels and Stockholm) together with students and proffesionals from the construction logistics sector.

Construction is required to create more attractive, sustainable and economically viable cities. This includes the expansion of infrastructure, development of new residential areas and renovation of buildings. However, construction related transport causes negative impacts for people that live, work and/or travel in the vicinity of construction sites. It will increase understanding among stakeholders on improved transport and will generate smart governance strategies to support implementation of the CIVIC approach.
