Construction Logistics

The motto of all logisticians is “having is better than needing”. In this sense, the essential task of construction logistics is the far-sighted planning and recognition of problems and their solution long before they actually arise. Based on this, the tasks of the construction logistics specialists are divided into two major areas:

– The strategic, overarching planning of a building complex, large-scale construction project or urban development area on a time-based and logistical level: who does what, when, where and how and which requirements must be met so that everyone has performed their services by the defined point in time. The planning horizon ranges from weeks and months to several years.

The services of INGOB in construction logistics include planning of construction site equipment areas, cranes, construction roads, quantities management for earthworks and concrete, access and slot management, construction site safety and occupational safety, supply and disposal management, as well as support for official procedures, meetings and coordination with local and regional authorities for moving-in management.

– The operational construction logistics monitors compliance with all requirements and rules at all times, identifies deviations and initiates short and medium-term countermeasures. Detailed scheduling and coordination at work level are part of our daily business operations.

Changes – from whatever sphere – are analysed, evaluated and deviations are countered with appropriate reactions if necessary.

INGOB’s construction logistics specialists use an extensive set of tools to carry out these tasks: overview plans, responsibilities lists, schedules, meeting matrices, inspections and intensive communication as an information hub in the project.

For complementary services there are long-term partnerships with partner offices and companies.

Our Construction Logistics services include:

“Logistics consists of 99.9% logic.
For us, service means seeing the issues and problems through the eyes of the customer and act accordingly.”

Service(s): Construction logistics


In the Donaustadt district, directly on the Hirschtetten bathing pond, a new urban development area is being created with around 1.000 residential units and an infrastructural offer, for the benefit of not only future residents, but also of all the neighbours.

The school campus right next to the construction area was completed in 2019. By the time the project should be completed in 2024, local amenities, shopping opportunities and leisure activities will be added.

The higher-level construction logistics is the information hub for all those involved in the project on site. It organises the construction site traffic and takes over the spatial and time-based coordination of interfaces between construction sites, infrastructure contractors and road construction. Furthermore, construction logistics is responsible for the overall construction site safety and develops construction process concepts and schedule scenarios for an ecologically and economically optimised construction at the entire area. 

Scope of services:

  • Monitoring and coordination of construction schedules and timelines between contractors of the buildings, contractors of the infrastructure and of landscaping parks, MA42, MA31, MA33, MA28
  • Creation and continuation of the logistics matrix as interface management between construction of buildings, earthworks / greenery / media for the time-based and spatial coordination of construction processes.
  • Development of construction process concepts and various future scenarios.
  • Creation and updating of various plans, such as superordinate construction site plans, traffic plans and emergency plans and monitoring of compliance.
  • Control and support of the updating of the construction schedules for the infrastructure contractor.
  • Control and management of the heavy traffic of all project participants in and out of the construction site, including updating the traffic concept.
  • Daily construction site controls and on-site inspections, including photo documentation.
  • Planning, preparation, implementation and control of the traffic.
  • Organisation and administration of the additional construction site equipment areas, including final auditing, approval of the construction site equipment planning.
  • Planning and preparation of the soil disposal and support of earthworks.
  • Coordination and support for higher-level construction site coordination (especially with regard to the structural separation of pedestrians and construction sites).
  • Ensuring the flow of traffic in the project area, including the implementation of the traffic plan.
  • Support to the developers in tender procedures
  • Control of compliance with the superordinate building site regulations, especially with regard to material storage, parking and stopping bans.
  • Coordination and inspections with “blue light organisations”.
  • Implementation of emergency exercises with all project participants as well as departments of the City of Vienna (MA68, MA70 and police)
  • Coordination and support for planned events with regard to time-based and technical conditions, e.g. art projects, triathlons, opening ceremonies, ground breaking ceremonies.
  • Preparation and coordination of the moving-in the building sites with a focus on traffic management, demarcation of public space from building site, access roads (MA48, fire brigade) and building site security.
