MIMIC aims to demonstrate how SMART Governance concepts can be used as an aid in the construction and city planning processes to facilitate and support logistics to, from and on urban construction sites to improve mobility and reduce congestion within cities and thereby reduce the negative impact of construction sites on the surrounding community.
Construction projects contribute to more attractive, sustainable and economically viable urban areas once they are finished. However, transport activities related to construction works have negative impacts on the surrounding community if not handled appropriately.
- Analysis and identification of construction logistics scenarios (both on and off site)
- Stakeholder involvement and management throughout the different project phases, through identification of stakeholders and stakeholder objectives in a participatory MAMCA and gaming
- Implementation of a sustainability impact assessment framework to evaluate the economic, social and environmental performance of the construction logistics scenarios
- Enhanced data collection and optimization of construction logistics processes using dynamic data technologies
- Combine 1-4 into a SMART Governance Concept 2.0 based on the concept deve
- Deployment of the SMART Governance Concept 2.0 to eliminate functional barriers for implementation
- Transferability and scalability of construction logistics scenarios and the SMART Governance concept 2.0 across European cities.
