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 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.
