Urban construction projects are essential in reducing the housing deficit of the latest urbanization trend. As such, construction projects contribute to more attractive, sustainable and economically viable urban areas once they are finished. However, construction work and construction material flow activities cause severe negative impacts on the surrounding community during the construction process. The MIMIC project focuses on the social, economic and environmental sustainability problems that arise from urban construction, and especially the logistics activities to, from, around and on urban construction sites.This deliverable is part of MIMIC (Minimizing impact of construction material flows in cities: Innovative Co-Creation), a JPI Europe funded research project with demonstration cases in Brussels, Vienna, Oslo and Sweden.

Deliverable 1.4 provides guidelines to introduce formal evaluation methods into the co-creation process. The Multi-Actor Multi-Criteria Analysis (MAMCA), designed by Macharis (2000) and further developed within the MOBI Research Centre, aims at reaching a consensus among stakeholders and stakeholder groups, hence highlighting which logistics solutions receive the largest support. Deliverable 1.4 aims to formulate how the MAMCA methodology can be implemented within the MIMIC project and, ultimately, within the construction logistics sector. It introduces the MAMCA evaluation method, explains how this method can be applied in the co-creation process in MIMIC and in construction logistics, and provides practical guidelines to carry out the analysis with the help of the online MAMCA software.
