Evaluate site development possibilities and land area requirements with spreadsheet simplicity.
The best tool ever for land development analysis, planning, and decision-making, Walter Martin Hosack's LAND DEVELOPMENT CALCULATIONS adds speed and clarity to your every recommendation and choice.
AUTOMATE LAND DEVELOPMENT PROBLEM-SOLVING AND DECISION-MAKING
Whatever the project--hospital, office, mall, or residential development--architects, civil engineers, urban planners, designers, landscape architects, developers, owners, regulators, and land use policymakers begin by evaluating parameters, comparing alternatives and assessing the feasibility of the contemplated land development. This process has been largely intuitive, but actually involves an array of interrelated factors and calculations that can vbe automated to consistently forecast many alternatives in the time it takes to conceive and draw one.
Forty easy-to-use, plug-in spreadsheets cover all basic development design issues and strategies and are included with LAND DEVELOPMENT CALCULATIONS: INTERACTIVE TOOLS AND TECHNIQUES FOR SITE PLANNING, ANALYSIS, AND DESIGN. Each spreadsheet forecasts development options based on values that are entered within a pre-formatted design specification panel. Alternative values produce instant options for comparison that can lead to more informed feasibility, investment, appraisal, and economic development conclusions.
