Pre-contract Studies: Development Economics, Tendering and Estimating provides a comprehensive introduction to the property development process, with an emphasis on the financial analysis of projects in the context of development values and construction costs.
The process of getting a project from inception to completion is examined in detail, while the different methods of development appraisal, and the way developers’ budgets are calculated, are explored with worked examples.
The second edition has been substantially revised and extended to include two new chapters on:
? project construction costs
? new developments and trends
The book was originally written for the Chartered Institute of Building’s Education Framework, but is suitable for, and has been used on a wide range of undergraduate programmes in building, surveying and associated disciplines.
