Pre-contract Studies: Development Economics and Estimating provides a comprehensive introduction to the property development process. It covers the level 2 module of the CIOB's Education Framework on pre-contract studies and is officially sanctioned by the CIOB as the recognised text for that module. The book addresses the issues involved in development 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 thoroughly examined, while the different methods of development appraisal and the way that developers' budgets are calculated are further explored through worked examples.

This book is a core textbook for the CIOB level 2 module on pre-contract studies, as well as BTEC HNC/D and degree courses in building and surveying. It is also useful reading for degree courses in estate management and architecture.

From the Back Cover:

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 book covers capital investment, funding sources, the economics of development, evaluation of financial data, whole life costing and tendering, estimating and cash flow considerations. 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 third edition has been extensively revised to reinforce aspects of valuations and more information has been added on the major property companies and who owns the land in Britain, as well as on conservation, PFI and value management. A large number of charts and graphs are new.

The book is used on a wide range of undergraduate programmes in building, surveying and associated disciplines.
