As cities are continuously growing – it is estimated by UN DES that by 2050, 68% of the world population will live in urban areas.

City authorities can proactively manage the process during the planning phase of a urban construction project. A collaborative approach to consolidate construction materials presents potential benefits to construction companies and public authorities by reducing traffic flow and cost.
