Stockholm, Sweden

Stockholm is growing rapidly and 140,000 new homes are planned by 2030. Stockholm Royal Seaport is the largest urban development area in Sweden with 12,000 new homes and 35,000 workplaces.

According to a decision by Stockholm City Council in 2010, the Stockholm Royal Seaport is to be a sustainable urban district and an international model for sustainable urban planning. Planning work started in the early 2000s and the new city district will be fully developed around 2030.


The CIVIC project will test and demonstrate

Construction projects in a major urban area, with a dense population and limited space for additional transport operations, call for new solutions in terms of transport as well as for managing consolidation of construction material deliveries. The Royal Seaport area will be the focus of the demonstration, with inland waterways and a construction consolidation center operated by Servistik forming the basis for evaluation in Stockholm. The demonstration in Stockholm will be the fourth demonstration and builds on experiences from the three previous three demonstration projects.
