An understanding of how the design and construction processes interact to determine the cost and quality of buildings is essential to architects, builders and surveyors. Design and the Economics of Building is a text for students in all the built environment fields. It takes a fresh approach to the important issues involved in the building process and their relationship to each other, dealing among other topics with: the cost and construction implications of design decisions; the way design affects, and is affected by, the construction process; the economics of building's essential resources - labour, materials, technology and management; the cost of energy efficiency; methods of cost prediction and control; procurement systems and their implications for cost, time and quality; information flow between designers, surveyors and contractors; the value of buildings, determined by market and social criteria. With its wide scope, readability and generous use of examples and references to recent projects, Design and the Economics of Building will be of interest to all those concerned with the built environment as well as being an essential text for architecture, surveying and construction management students.
