Short description: The Megasite Management Toolsuite MMT is a software tool for consultants, authorities, and investors involved in the planning and assessment of revitalization options for brownfields. An impartial integrated assessment of possible alternatives for redeveloping a site shall help to design sustainable and economically attractive options in order to maximize benefits from the existing planning scope. MMT results will facilitate a common approach and agreement among all stakeholders. The MMT unites and coherently links several software modules: ¡a GIS-based data management module ¡a graphical user interface (GUI) providing control of all input data and graphing capabilities for analysis of results ¡a planning module to create land use plans ¡a module to locate and quantify conflicts of environmental targets of planned land use with existing contamination in soil and groundwater ¡an integrated assessment module. Software sub modules offer ¡a number of cost models which provide sufficient flexibility to estimate remediation and site preparation costs work at various levels of details incl. early screening of expected costs based on only a basic set of input data ¡a market value assessment model which involves a new and transparent method to include perceived risks of market participants due to apprehended uncertain costs in regard with (previous) contamination into the appraisal ¡a sustainability assessment model based on the abstract notion that sustainability has to be rendered operational for being adapted to a specific local situation. This model supports users in developing a case-specific set of criteria for sustainable development to compare different land use option.
