This unit examines the processes and techniques used in development appraisal and the economic evaluation of building projects.  Topics will include the development process, property investment, feasibility studies, property markets, project finance, taxation and risk analysis. Students will analyse the multi-disciplinary nature of the development process and the relationship between design decisions and the total cost of building projects as they prepare detailed development appraisals and feasibility studies within the context of property markets and the built environment business ecology.  The unit will allow appreciation of the role that project financing arrangements play in influencing the size, scale and success of developments. The implications of various factors including taxation, regulation, international financial markets and social and business networks are examined in relation to development risk analysis and decision making.
