Description

The second edition of the highly successful Contemporary Property Development is an up-to-date and in-depth examination of the process of developing property for commercial gain.

Written with construction and property professionals and students in mind, it provides both a basic level of information and also the opportunity to acquire more advanced skills. It will also be useful to more peripheral members of the development team as well as a wider readership of policy makers searching for a better understanding of the sectors mechanics.

The scope of the book is comprehensive, offering a solid introduction to all aspects of property development, covering particular areas in detail such as finance, project appraisal, project execution, the post-construction phase and the risk of property development. In the final part of the book, it describes real life case studies, linking theory with practice by showing how the process works in the real world.

Many of the controversial decisions in public life in the UK in recent years, such as the Millennium Dome, Wembley Stadium and the London Olympic site, are essentially property development decisions. A better understanding of the mechanics, process and economics should lead to better decisions. Contemporary Property Development is aimed at filling this gap in the knowledge base.
